Kellogg’s Starbot Review

I haven’t been able to score Diener’s Space Creatures yet, but I did finally get my hands on a Starbot. Here’s my review:

  1. I had this shuttle guy, although I’m pretty sure I had a slightly different color (although it wasn’t white) I think mine might have been a light blue (hard to remember after all these years). I used to make him grab his feet too.

    For a transforming toy, he was just about as cheapo as they get. He even made my dimestore knockoffs with the pullback motors look good by comparison.
    For a cereal prize however, he was absolutely awesome.
    I never had any of the others though, nor even duplicate copies of that one. I guess we only got the one box of qualifying cereal during the span of the promotion. *shrug*

  2. The silver color on the one in your other post looks familiar. Then again, I recall painting mine at one point. I don’t remember if he was originally silver and I painted him something else or if he was originally something else and I painted him silver.

  3. Great video, Doug! Appreciate you sharing your memories of how his robot form functioned, my Wife was watching the video over my shoulder and just kind of nodded her head in agreement as to how his equipment operated. :)

  4. @ Vic, ha!

    @Drahken, I think each Starbot came in a variety of colors, so there may have been a silver shuttle. Come to think of it, silver makes much more sense.

    I always got the space shuttle. I had several white ones and a silver one. He was their leader.
