Tomy has manufactured lots of cool robot toys during their existence, but Robie The Banker (also known as Mr. Money by Radio Shack) is probably the most memorable...
Robie was basically just a bank with simple robotic functions: you put some coin in his hand and he would 'eat' it, depositing it into his belly for safe keeping. The robot then starts to rock back and fourth, followed by his tounge coming out and licking his lips. There is a switch on the bottom that puts the Robot into Demo mode. This just causes it to loop the same function over and over.
