This little guy can get quite moody. He has four distinct modes - basic, walking, Good Little Robie and Bad Little Robie. Using the remote, he will follow you around, which I haven't been able to play with since... you guessed it - Thrift Store special: no remote. He will alway roam about on his own without the remote. When he runs into something, he will either apologize or complain - depending on the mood he is in. By pressing down on either arm, you can make him speak different phrases.

I still need a remote and a tray for this fella. If you have either that you would be willing to part with, please email me!    I was able to locate a remote on eBay a while back, only to find out that little Robie Junior has a stripped gear in his drivetrain :(
