Orbbots (not to be confused with the Mighty Orbots) are a cheap toy line found in vending machines across America in 2018. If it were Japan, they would be called Gashapon, but these are distributed by a company called SSM vending. There are 5 different robots in the line, and each is available in one of four different colors.
Each Orbbot comes unassembled on plastic spues, and each layer of sprue, when stacked, forms an orb. Once the toy is assembled though, it can no longer form an orb.
Osiris is the Egyptian god of the afterlife, but I'm not getting a very Egyptian feel to the robot. Sometimes a cool name is just a cool name.
The color of the capsule matches the color of the robot. Inside you get instructions and the orb-shaped model kit.
When you take the orb apart, the sprues are set in a circular layer. Once you remove the parts, you cannot make the orb again.
The assembled robot is about 2 inches tall and has a difficult time standing up. The mechanical design of this robot is better than Solpugid, but it's not perfect. One thing this robot has is fists stored on the back, but the instructions do not indicate any use for this. This further lends credence to my theory that there is a larger combination scheme in mind, but it is up to you to find out what that is.
Combining Osiris with Solpugid makes for an interesting mess, but again, I think the more robots in the line you collect, the more possibilities. This could get difficult as the only place I have seen these for sale was in vending machines in front of Toys R Us, and those are closing down.
