Yeah I've got one.  A picture of this artifact is attached. 

BTW, the one on the left is a "Robotic Banker", also sold by Radio Shack(r) during the same era. There are no controls for the Robot Bankster, you just put a coin in its slot, and this starts a programed sequence: Pick up the coin.  Drop it in the bank.  Push and release the lever on the advice wheel. Return to the rest position, and shut off.

Had one, several decades ago. It's cute, for a mechanical-clutch waldo. Long gone.

Let me guess -- you've got a solenoid mechanism, ideally with some positional feedback, for putting it under computer control?
