R.O.B. peripheral is for display purposes only, he is not fully functional.

Nintendo released what is now considered the 'Test Market' consoles to select retailers in New York City in October 1985. They released 100,000 of these units. They are considered the Test Market consoles because Nintendo did not know how well they would actually sell. In fact, they gave the retailers a buyback guarantee. The guarantee was after 90 days if the system had not sold they could just give the systems back to Nintendo at no cost or risk to them. The systems were released with Gyromite, Duck Hunt, the Zapper and R.O.B. This later would be known as the Deluxe Set.. however, the original Test Market console boxes did not say Deluxe Set on them. The test market consoles were made with a thicker, smoother shell than the consoles that came later. Later versions were rigid. Test market consoles have a smooth top. It’s noticeable to the touch and if you have good pictures of the console you can tell if it’s smooth or rigid similar to an NES game cartridge shell.
