I am looking for the typeface used in VH1's "I love the 80's" shows. Not the text, but the symbols - Specifically the giant robot shown here.

I am looking for the whole set - or where I can buy it. I don't need to ID the robot. I know it is inspired by the Shogun warriors (designs originally created by Go Nagai), but not any actual robot. Thanks in advance. I know for sure it is a typeface.

search thru all of these dingbat fonts--it may be there

The giant robot is, I believe, from House Industries' art collection.

That's it!

It's from the House Industries Chalet Collection. Thanks so much Luriete!

Here's the link, since seemingly nobody else could be bothered.

Various Shogun robots. One of the most famous, of course, is Transor Z, also known as Mazinga.

Sure, I guess Astroboy counts, but Transor Z, with the boob-missile-firing female robot, sticks out in my mind for some reason.
