Classic '80s Toy Robots Breakdancing Is a Fun Nostalgia Trip

YouTuber BreaksBricks has created a delightful stop-motion Lego animation featuring a couple of retro ‘80s toy robots having a break-dancing competition—which eventually gets a little over-competitive.


If you happen to be in your late thirties you probably remember these two robots, who could usually be found rolling around your local Radio Shack store. Outside of eBay you can’t buy them anymore, but BreaksBricks is trying to bring them back through a Lego Ideas project you can go vote on to lend your support.

These resemble Radio Shack’s Robie Jr. and Robie Sr. robots. I still have a Robie Jr. sitting on display in my computer room.
