The Mechanical Robot Man of Fu Manchu is the Warbot figure from Hydra Miniatures figure that I happened to see when I was browsing their web site. Yep, you guessed it. I thought to myself "Shiny new toy!" and I knew Fu Manchu needed it.

Isn't that the robot from Castle in the Sky?

Not to throw cold water on it, but Fu Machu's specialty was organic things – mostly poisonous plants and animals and derivatives thereof (plus lots of Dacoits, Thugs, and other "Eastern" murderers…).

Don't worry, the Thugs and Dacoits are coming, But I could not resist getting that robot. I think it will a versatile addition to many games.
