1960s Horikawa Japan Tin Battery Operated Space Explorer Robot With Original Box. Tinplate and plastic battery-operated space explorer astronaut robot which was made in Japan by Horikawa in the late-1960s. In action, he strides forward, stops, then an impressive "spaceship Apollo" movie scrolls on his chest screen with realistic space noise. There should also be a rotating "spaghetti" shoulder antenna, but this is unfortunately missing. After testing the robot with batteries, it does exactly as described above and is in WORKING condition.

To keep updated with what items we have coming soon, please go to. The overall condition of this robot is OK showing signs of play wear, scratching, scrapes, marks, chrome loss, and rust around the battery compartment area.

As previously mentioned, he is missing his shoulder antenna. The robot is accompanied by its original box which again is in OK condition showing wear to ends, corners and sides as well as rips and tears.

There is also remains of an old price sticker on the front of the box and tape repair on the inside of the lid. Requires 2 x D cell batteries (not included). Important: Due to increased weight and size of modern-day alkaline D cell batteries, these vintage robots work best with plastic battery converters (with AA batteries) or a combination of one of each. Please do take a close look at the photos provided for condition, quality and detail as these help form part of the description.

Each robot is tested with batteries or winding mechanism and if working or partially working a video is recorded of the robot in action during the photography of the product. Extensive research is undertaken on each product listed and honest detailed descriptions made, based upon this research for the actual product.
