Dog Toy? Who Sez?

While at Tractor Supply shopping for dog treats I found this dog toy.
It was $10 plus tax and a very nice item.
The disclaimer on the back of the package says that this item is for pet use only.  It is not a child's toy.
However, in my opinion it is too good to give to the canine buddy, it's an awesome retro robot.
It is perfect for science fiction wargames from the 1920s to the late 1960s in my opinion.
Here is the robot with two scientists who were instrumental in it's development.
At least that is the plot of the B science fiction movie they are filming.
I think it works well with 60mm figures, it is big enough to be intimidating but not so large as to take up a lot of space.
Cut, that's a print.

Just shows you gotta keep a hobby eye out all the time.

Thanks for the comment Q.

The head is right off the IDEAL TOYS "Robert the Robot" ... of 1954!

It did look familiar but I could not place it, thanks Wim.
