Take ... me ... to ... your ... READERSí Luling manís retro robot is a winner.

Tom Morrisís goggle-eyed robot looks like it came to us through a time warp.

And no wonder - itís a retro version of a battery-operated ďtin toyĒ that was popular during the heyday of cheesy sci-fi flicks back in the 1950s.

ďI ordered it from a guy on eBay,Ē says Morris, 38, of Luling. ďIím bidding on another one now. I want to build a collection.Ē

Got something bigger, wilder or weirder than Tomís robot? We want to feature YOU in the St. Charles Herald-Guide.
