Help Me Identify a 1970's Toy Robot

I purchased this today for 6 dollars, I was wondering what toy line it's from. All I know is that it's made by Imperial and it's dated 1978.





Thanks.

yeah, it's not the lost in space guy robot, or robby the robot, i think he might be frmo the disney movie "the black hole" i am not too sure.

it's hard doing a search for it when you have no real idea what it's from. it looks like an R2-D2 clone though, but just uglier :P

No, just the company name "Imperial" and the date "!978" as well as Hong Kong. That is all.

david, I have no idea where that robot is from...I'm pretty sure it's not anything from Lost In Space or Disney's The Black Hole. I would suggest if you really want to find out, that you contact some toy/comic book dealers in your area and they might know or be able to find out what it is.

If you don't find out by April what it is, there is a Sci-Fi convention here in April that I always go to. They have a huge toy-show dealers/collectors room, and I can take the picture along and ask if anyone knows what it might be.
