How often do you get to see a car and a robot fight to the death in real life? Well now you can! Via a time warp from the turn of the century this is the totally awesome outstanding Robot Showdown currently on offer from our eBay listings
What can I say? There is a large robot, a car, a remote control and a showdown! It’s classic vintage and you may never see another one
The robot features some amazing infrared tracking technology, so it can pursue the car from as far away as 12 feet! You are in control driving the race car in the ultimate survival race. The robot tries to win the game by hitting the car three times and flipping it over.
The only chance is to evade the robot long enough until it loses power. When it does, the car can chase the robot down, hit him and win the race!

Colonel Steve Zodiac flew around the universe in Fireball XL5 with star dust in his eyes and Venus at his side. All that eye-rubbing and nose blowing must have been slightly distracting. This excellent annual was published 1966 for 1967 by Collins
Gerry and Sylvia Anderson produced almost 40 episodes of Steve’s adventures with Venus. She was the daughter of the actual Commander of the World Space Patrol … and Steve’s girlfriend.
These gripping sci fi episodes ran between 1962 and 1963. Steve not only had a cool Zen-like AI robot (inexplicably named Robbie), a mighty XL5 space ship and a beautiful girlfriend … but the whole of space was his playground!
Absolutely charming mid-century sci fi artwork and stories set in 2062. We sold this 92 page book of vintage space excitement from our eBay listings in 2014 for just £30!
Description: cover and pages in excellent condition with no damage or tears. A little normal yellowing to the pages but no foxing – a couple of the activities carefully completed and previous owner’s name written inside
What does Wikipedia know?
First transmitted on ATV on Sunday 28 October 1962. While developing his new show, Anderson thought a brand of motor oil—Castrol XL—had an interesting sound. A phonetic change created the name “Fireball XL”, with the “-5” added as the title seemed a bit flat without the numeral
The show featured the Andersons’ Supermarionation, a form of puppetry first introduced in Four Feather Falls (1960) and Supercar (1961) and used again in their subsequent productions such as Stingray and Captain Scarlet. Thirty-nine black and white half-hour episodes of Fireball XL5 were made on 35mm film: all future Anderson series were produced in colour
Very unusual Japanese import time-warped from 1992… and currently on offer from our eBay listings

Dan Dare doesn’t really mean too much now but back in the day he was the man. In a world that had only recently seen the development of jet engines Dan Dare was the 1950s story of an everyday spaceman set in the late 1990s. He was the “Pilot of the future”
Voice messages travel from handset to handset via a wire so this design may have limitations… Venus and Mars might be alright but your gonna need a long bit of string to talk to Uranus
