Item Description
Original illustrated cardboard box has great space illustration of robot toy within. Side panel has instructions w/illustration. Box shows obvious wear w/creases and scattered moisture staining. VG. Nicely designed tin litho robot by Yonezawa, Japan. c. 1959. The robot in its closed box-shaped state has an overall size of 3.5x4.5x7" tall. In its fully extended robot mode size is 4x11.5x11.75" tall overall. This is scarcer red color variety. Designed to change from the "box" into a full fledged robot figure as a clicking noise is produced and its eyes blink. The screen on its chest also lowers to reveal an implied 3D scene of a spaceman behind a control panel w/equipment around him. Robot waddles back and forth as it walks forward. It then stops and retracts back into its box form before repeating these actions. All functions work as they should. The silvered chest frame around the screen and the embossed silver panel below this both have numerous scattered silver luster loss, w/frame luster nearly completely gone. These two pieces would grade VG and Fine. The rest of the robot has only slightest trace of wear w/small scattered traces of wear on arms. The overall appearance is bright, glossy and VF.
