Robotic Operating Buddy NES-012

R.O.B. the Robotic Operating Buddy was introduced with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985 as a marketing pull mostly. It was a gimmick that was just created mainly to get people to buy systems. R.O.B. stood 9.5 inches tall and only used two games: Gyromite and Stack Up. Gyromite came with R.O.B. at it's initial release and a set of spinning gyros. Stack Up came with a set of colored blocks for R.O.B. All R.O.B. did was stack and match the onscreen image by moving left to right and up and down, setting the items in place.

Who could resist these eyes? The two cosmetically different R.O.B.s. One had a flat faced Infared cover and the other had the "eye" shapes.

The only other game besides Gyromite made for the R.O.B.
