    Those are cool little pieces of nostalgia. I seem to remember them at the local Kay-Bee toys when I was a kid, along with some sort of animal combiner that I can't quite seem to remember. I do remember thinking he would make a good adversary to Predaking!

    Nice find! I love these guys, I still have mine from when I was a kid. I never did get the slot machine, I have the others though.

    My favorite bit is on the Cash Register, when you push the sale button and his hollow head pops open like a cash drawer -- and then there's a sticker where he looks like he's just about to blow his brains out (or summon a persona) ...Cause really, if you had humans cramming filthy dollar bills into your hollowed-out noggin all day, you'd probably want to shoot yourself in the head as well.

    Congrats man, sweet haul.

    I had the slot machine as a kid, I've been looking for one for a while. Which line are they from/who made them?

    It'd be even better if they could combine to form a giant gambling bot that steals all your money.

    OH SNAP! I remember those! I had the pinball one, and my brother possibly had the roulette one. Seriously, this is one of the only times in my life where I forgot about a toy I actually owned - thanks for the great memory jog!

    theres lots of varients of em too, the roulette one also has a dice version as well as a four star knockoff of him wth different arms., very nice finding them with their boxes.
