Ding-A-Lings
By Euphrates
Ding-A-Ling Ding-A-Lings are another favorite made by Topper Toys in the seventies. These 5-inch robots each perform the simple task that they are named for (provided you bought the power pack which was sold seperately!) and travel on a futuristic track called a Skyway. Their leader is the King Ding, a giant robot that towers over the Ding-A-Lings. He too is battery-operated and even comes with an elevator that takes the Brain robot up into his head where he can control him. Here is a list of the robots and the Space Skyway sets:

The Boxer, Claw, Fireman and Constructo are fairly common and can be picked up MIB for $25-$35 to this day. The rest of the figures are much harder and can cost $10-$20 more. A nice King Ding can command up to $350 or even $500 if he is still in his box.

The Space Skyway sets seem to be plentiful, even with their original boxes, and can be had for $50-$125.
