Its funny to see when you take a close look at this robot that you can see things you saw before.... the dome.... isnt that the dome of robby the robot, the famous robot also build by nomura ? and the batteries build in the legs, yes also the same ones...
Here is the story: when a robot ( read robby )finished its marketrun Nomura didnt want to simply throw away the molds of this robot, they just used them to create a "new" robot, and "voila" Nomura`s Astronaut was born. Build on the molds of the famous robby platform. The result was a stunning robot and one of the more desirable toys of the sixties.
During operation, the astronaut walks forward, then stops, raises his arm and " speaks " silently into his flashing and beeping walkie talkie. When the communication is over, the robot starts walking again. There are 2 versions known, a bleu version with a dark hear astronaut , and a red version with a blond astronaut.
The condition of this astronaut is excellent to near mint and this is for sure the best example I EVER had. All the lights work, the beeping works and the robot walks around. Its also the first time I found this robot with ALL the functions working !! The beeper never works on these robots.....NO rust and the dome has no cracks.
There is only VERY light playwear but you really have to look good to find it. You never need to upgrade this one EVER ! The box is excellent as well and only a few tears and repairs at one sidepanel are keeping this box from higher grading.
This is the first time I have this robot complete with a VERY nice original box with BRIGHT colors
This Nomura - Rosko Astronaut is one of the most desirable and searched for robots of the sixties, very hard to find in this wonderfull condition !
