I have 2 full sets of the Cybot - Real Robot series available.  Both robots have been made to different stages.  Have all the magazines and parts - most issues haven't even been opened.
This was a magazine & part series about 4 years ago.  I thought they were a cool idea - these robots can be programmed (from what I can remember!), follow lines, commands, interact with each other etc. 
I'd rather leave the 2 sets together, as separating whats been done to which robot would be very time consuming (considering I'm trying to find a new house, pack and work!)
I'd prefer person to pick up before 13 November, as I'm moving on the 14th and don't fancy taking them with me!
Both sets combined take up 3 and a half medium sized boxes, so probably best if picked up, or courier arranged at person's expense.
All offers considered.
Feel free to PM me and I'll try to answer any questions.

I have one of these that i half made - got too expensive! i got up to the stage with the remote finished if i remember, however some things dont work due to the lack of parts, as sometimes stuff has to be removed and replaced with more things later on.
Magazines are a great read also.
Out of interest how much did the full thing end up costing? (and a ballpark price you plan on selling for those who are reading)

oooh, I wouldn't know how much it ended up costing!  The original plan was I built one and my father built one (and he paid!) and they could 'play' together.  However our plan didn't work out due to various reasons, so sadly they were never finished.

I have no idea regarding price at this stage, just thought I'd see if anyone was interested...  If I wasn't moving they probably have stayed in the cupboard for another few years!
