The computer unit was also completely seperate from the Omnibot, even having a dedicated speaker. The remote control allowed you to move the Omnibot forward, backward, left, and right. You could also talk through the remote's in built microphone and broadcast it through Omnibot's integrated speaker, and play built in "robot sounds".

The original retail price was $250 USD (which is roughly $650 USD in 2021 money).

The Omnibot 5402 was about a foot tall with a:

  • built-in cassette player for both music and programming
  • RC remote control
  • built in microcomputer with lock
  • programming capabilities

After the initial launch, an 'Omnibot MKII" with dedicated motor ports on the back for direct control was released.

Today, the Omnibot 5402 is (still!) relatively easy to find on eBay, and prices asked range from $50 (not tested) to a whopping $999 (prototypes).

Ive had my Tomy since new in the early 80's but since moving houses several times ive lost the remote control. Ive been thinking its time to get him out of the box and display and use him. Does anyone know if i find a remote to buy will it work with him or are they set for each individual Tomy? Anyone know where i can get one from?
