Atom Robot
 

Yoshiya, 1960s
6.5 inches tall

The smallest of the skirted robots, Atom Robot nonetheless possesses an abundance of style. Both his colorful, retro-futuristic lithography and his striking yellow-green eyes (a more common variation has red ones) play up his status as an advanced piece of scientific engineering, while his friendly face indicates that he's ready to serve humanity. Atom Robot uses a friction action common among older toys; turn the small crank in his back and watch as he careens around the room like a breakdancer on speed.
