I know you're a Battle of the Planets guy, the other release by these guys is an R2-D2 knock off that looks like 7-Zark-7. In fact, I used to pretend that it was Zark as a kid, since there were no BotP toys.

I remember having a pic of the other one somewhere...

Oops, mixed up my gum filled robot toys.
The other Chewgum bot is a boxier droid (left in the photo linked) The Zark knock off was the ones made by Tarco/Arrow. They had a humanoid bot (middle) and the 7-Zark-7 style one on the right. The red and yellow ones had Chiclets gum in them.

I remember having all of these at one time or another in the early 80s...
