Repro Man

There are two kinds of space toy and robot collectors. There are those guys who have all the impossible-to-get, mint-condition, super-expensive robots and space toys locked up in their cavernous private basements in Xanadu.

You see them featured on tv shows like, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Childless.”

As for the rest of us Hoi Polloi, we often have to collect the more affordable reproductions of old-school designs, usually made by Japanese and Chinese companies who have discovered this profitable niche. The repros can run from expensive limited-edition runs (usually made by the Japanese) to low-end, dirt-cheap, but fun repros (almost always made by the Chinese.)
