Meet the MODIFIED TS-558 Robot Warrior from 1984, time traveling to the year 2012, brought to you by Super Sock! Formerly an AM radio that turned KAPUT, this little robot was upgraded by lightyears so he could keep you company in your darkest hour. This robot is now a fully-functional red night light! His previous radio dials were replaced and converted to a push-button switch, and he can now be plugged into any US outlet, so you can enjoy his luminous presence.

All malfunctioning radio devices inside were replaced with electronics for a dim, red light, and plastic was modified in his chest, so that the light bulb is visible from the outside. This robot can still transform manually into an old school boombox with just a few twists and turns. This is the only modified (former radio) robot of it's kind in the world as a nightlight. Please note: light is not very bright, and it's sole purpose is for dim comfort, which I find pleasant when you don't want a big ole white light shining in your eyes if you're trying to catch some zzz. The bulb is quite small, roughly the size of a small marble, and it's permanently red.

Since Robot was formerly a used, well-played with toy that endured too many battles, he is scratched on his surface--when originally acquired he was completely covered with grease and black soot. I removed a large percentage of this, but he still may have some dirty appearance, which I think gives him a modern, gritty character. Please do not expect robot to have complete integrity of the former system, since external screws that broke were replaced with new mismatch silver or black ones, stickers are worn off, mostly replaced with black unevenly applied PVC rubber tape, and new screws were applied to places that were formerly vacant spaces for a complete, consistent look. The nonuniform appearance is the beauty of having something handmade, and upgraded to a new product--the ONLY ONE IN THE UNIVERSE!!!

More Details: Robot transforms from a boombox figure measuring 6.7 x 4.3 x 1.8 inch, to an upright robot. This was originally manufactured as an transformers, marvel product, but is in the style of the autobots (soundwave). He looks great as a desk ornament, and is now a durable nightlight, made to illuminate with a small bulbs for years and years. Great novelty lamp, and a wonderful companion.
