Plastic Pals Turns 3 Years Old Today!

Today is the third anniversary of the site, and we’d like to thank you for reading! We hope the site meets your expectations.  Last year we did a robot figure give-away, which we’d like to do again, but it may have to wait a little while. We’ll announce that on our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr before the end of the year, so keep your eyes peeled!

To date we have added 516 robots to the site (give or take), and there’s plenty more where that came from! There are still dozens of older robots we plan to add to the site, which will help complete the robot timeline.  Some of them, like the SONY SDR-3X and QRIO, haven’t been added because we have so much media to sort through and organize.

Besides a new logo (do you like it?) we’re also thinking of changing our permalink structure.  The problem is that changing this will break the existing urls.  I’m not sure there is an easy way to do fix that.  It’s one of those things we didn’t know any better back when we started the site that has bothered us since.  In the future, we may also change the name of the website. When we started it three years ago, it was (and still is) very difficult to find a relevant domain name (Plastic Pals was not our first choice).  Unfortunately lots of great domains are simply registered with the intent to sell them later.  Got any ideas for a new name?  Send them to us via our contact page!

      Thanks. The name has grown on me, but due to the way search engines work, the site doesn’t come up when people are looking for robots.
