MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Set of Classicbot Classic and iBot G3 Toys

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with designer Philip Lee of Classicbot to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a bundle that includes two of Lee's designer toys: the Classicbot Classic and the iBot G3.

Both the Classicbot and the iBot G3 are little robot toys that are modeled after classic Mac machines from Apple. The Classicbot Classic is modeled after the Macintosh Classic, sold in the early 1990s.


The Classicbot features a body that resembles a Classic Macintosh, along with movable arms and legs so it can be posed. There's a tiny mouse and a font suitcase that the Classicbot holds in a hand, and the detail is spectacular thanks to the precise injection molding technique used to make the toy.


Every part of the Classic Macintosh is included, from the display with two cute little robot eyes to the floppy disk drive and the vents, buttons, and ports on the back.

Classicbot Classic measures in at 10cm tall, and the arms, held on by magnets, can be removed for a more streamlined computer look.


Along with the Classicbot Classic, MacRumors readers who win the ‌giveaway‌ will get the iBot G3, which is modeled after Apple's iconic iMac G3, first introduced in 1998.


Available in either Bondi Blue or Tangerine, the iBot G3 features an anthropomorphized ‌iMac‌ with a face on the display, detachable arms, and movable legs.

As with the Classicbot Classic, the iBot G3 has been recreated faithfully, with an enclosure made from translucent plastic and impressive details like the CRT, ethernet ports, and ventilation fans.


The arms and legs can be detached and there's an included stand so it can be displayed in a more traditional computer shape as well. It comes with the ‌iMac‌ G3 mouse and keyboard.

Both the Classicbot Classic and the iBot G3 are designed to be figurines that are put on display, and they're the perfect desktop addition for any Apple lover. They also make great gifts. Philip Lee has a few other toys and figurines that MacRumors readers might be interested in, such as classic icon sets and Classicbot plushes.
