Item Description
14x15x40" high original box contains this classic toy that was introduced in late 1963 for one Christmas season only w/limited numbers produced. Toy has an overall size of 37" tall. Elaborate design and detail. Complete w/pair of original and working red light bulb eyes w/battery box free of corrosion. Top of head has "Scanner Scope" w/sight crosshairs, though missing yellow sighting cup attachment. Right arm has working spring mechanism which opens and closes hands so objects can be picked up. Designed w/hand-cranked voice box and although slightly garbled, "Big Loo Fights For You" can be heard. Designed w/rocket-firing launcher in base which is complete w/two rockets. There is an additional ball-launching function and is missing just one of the four issued plastic balls (smaller black ball). "Sonic Signal" hard plastic whistle intact in back of head. Back of body has Morse Code sticker w/opening for Morse Code clicking mechanism. Toy design includes interior spring that facilitates his lifting up again when he pivots at the waist. Complete w/thin plastic "Water Ray" squirt bulb that is inserted in back and squeezed so that jet of water squirts from front. Also comes w/three complete blue suction cup-tipped safety darts and stem for red dart. Working compass between feet. Original instruction sheet and battery liner insert not included. There are no broken or cracked areas and aside from bit of lt. aging at shoulders and slight wear to control panel on front, still displays Exc. As nice as these come. Beautiful box w/great graphics has three different scenes. Front and back panel match but other sides have totally different graphics. Box has some scattered wear w/4.5" long slice/puncture to side mentioning features, dust soiling to box front, edge wear and a few smaller .5" to .75" punctures. Fine overall. Box is extremely rare as most of these large toy boxes soon ended up thrown out or in rough condition. A classic 1960s Marx toy.
