TheRail Manipulatoris a new UGEARS’ model from the Mechanical Town Series. The set contains the Manipulator, two sections of rails, the shed under construction, two shipping crates with doors, crane, truck, and five characters. It is located in the river docks of Mechanical town nearby the Mechanical Wonder Works, or – as the local residents call it – the Robot Factory.
The Manipulatoris a model in which the user can control the mechanical claw with three levers. The claw itself sits on a platform that can rotate manually or by a valve. The rear of the model carries the lever that controls lifting, lowering, and holding of four foot supports providing extra-steadiness while operating the claw. The front and rear part of the model have hitch holes for coupling with other models.
2 sections of rails and 2 types of coupling anchorsthat connect the rails in two different manners: parallel or in one line.
2 shipping crates with doorsthat can accommodate some miniature freight or a tiny person.
Shed under construction- pseudo-metal frame made of giant trusses which arrived straight out of the Industrial age.
Crane– Can be disassembled and put back together almost by a wave of the hand. Works instantly after that! Due to the supplementary mechanisms the rotation and angle of the crane can be locked even with a load.
Freight carriage– This has drop sides that make loading and unloading simpler. The freight crates along with the disassembled crane can easily fit in it and be quickly moved to a new destination. Like the Manipulator, this model also has hitch holes for coupling with other models
5 characters: manipulator operator, worker holding signal flags (to facilitate the operating of the manipulator with the signal system), worker with a shovel , worker with a wrench, roofer with a hammer sitting on a beam of a shed.
