This rare Robot was made by the Lilli Ledy Company in Mexico in 1973. It is
a "knock-off" of the 1966 Remco Robot. It does have extra features that the
original does not have. Such as moveable arms, larger and wideder body base.
The chest light area has a moving device. As well as red lighting rotation in
the collar head section. It also speaks spanish and comes with decal logo.
As with the Remco Robot of 1966 this Mexican Robot also had clear & black
claws. Strange that both companies did this with this rare toy? "These are
very rare, and collectors recently just found out about this item. The value
of this item depends if the Robot is complete and works. Non-working Robots
sells for $1,000-$2,000. The most I've seen one of these go for is $3,000.
The box for this rare Robot is more valuable than the Robot it self! Add
another $1,000-plus for a box!" GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE!

I had the mexican LIS Robot speach translated. Here it is see ya,
I send you the phrase in Spainish and English:
Información insuficiente. No es computable. Mis sensores perciben amenaza
exterior. Deducción lógica. Nos alejamos del sistema solar. La atmósfera de
este planeta no es respirable.
Insufficient information. He is not computable. My sensors perceive outer threat.
Logical deduction. We moved away of the Solar System. The atmosphere of this planet
is not breathable.
We also obtained info on the "MAQ" lettering on the decal of this toy. The wording
comes from the word "Maquina" which means, "Machine". This info took me nearly 3
years to obtain.
