30-year-old plastic robot sells for big bucks in Japan!

Just when you thought the Japanese nation was a tad eccentric for obessing over shiny mud balls, an American comes along to show 'em we're still in the running, too...

An antique dealer in Japan found an old plastic robot, dusted it off, and put it up for auction online. The winning bid was placed by an American. The final price? 1.7 million yen, or about $15,000!

Sometimes I think I'm in the wrong business.
