Nomura - Space Robot X-70 Tuliphead

Build by Nomura at the end of the sixties ( 1970 to be exact ) in Japan. Codename: X-70) The 70 in the robots litho refers to the year of manufacture. 

When you first see this robot you think...Hey this automan has no head. At a second view you locate 2 "eyes" in the front that seems to give the robot something like a head. With a third view, when the robot starts to walk, this illusion of a head is gone... its a "Tulip" with a build in camera !! ??

This very scarce and rare robot has a strange action: It walks around just like most robots from the sixties does. Suddenly he stops, his "head" peels open like a tulip ) thats why this robot is better known as Tuliphead) and he starts to film its surroundings with a build in camera. The inside of the "tulipleafs" show FANTASTIC litho that you wont see often on spacetoys, really amazing ! When the cameraaction has ended, the "head" closes again and the robot takes a walk again.

This boxed example is excellent to near mint. The robot looks hardly been played with before and must have spent most of his robot life in its original box.

The robot works fine and strong with walking action, lights and the special opening of the head with rotating action.  Fantastic example with a cristal clean and undamaged battery compartment.  The robot is accompanied by its original box in excellent to near mint condition. Absolute above average example of this hard to find robot, you will not be dissapointed with this one !
