Wow... a Robotron in the "wild" ?

I haven't seen that since 1988!!!

And I can't believe TailGators is still open... I use to go there 20 years ago !

Time for another visit I reckon' !

Certain pins had a much larger distribution internationally, Dr Who being a British show was one of them. There aren’t very many in the USA compared to other titles with similar distribution numbers and is quite sought after by the yanks.

That makes sense. I'm not sure why that never occurred to me. Probably the only reason the Munsters was even created. Outside the USA it didn't have much of a following (that I'm aware of).
