Pocket ‘Bots Artwork By Earl Green Is Fantastic!

Earl Green is a man of many talents, he has written numerous guidebooks to a little something called Doctor Who as well as wore all the hats of production for his incredible Phosphor Dot Fossils DVD series…and also has his own series of podcasts and helmed the LogBook.com site…for the last 25 years. Deftly handling all of these responsibilities while also being a Husband and Father is a tall order but Earl pulls it off and having met him a few times in person I can tell you he is one of the nicest people on the planet.

He is also a great artist. Now I admit I might be biased but when you think about it, doesn’t the world need more artwork featuring an army of Tomy Pocket ‘Bots?

I have so many fond memories of getting these types of wind-up Tomy robots as stocking stuffers during Christmas and I would frequently incorporate them into my other toy universes. My Jawas had a thriving business selling these Pocket ‘Bots or Star*Robots or Rascal Robots to the various moisture farmers along their route on Tatooine.
