Horikawa - Attacking Martian Astronaut Version
|click here to return to the previous page..|
"The mother of all robots" This is the best way to describe this Japanese made robot by Horikawa, build in 1962. As far as I know this version comes in three colors: silver, gold and black.
The silver version has also been made as astronaut and is the most scarce version. This platform, a walking robot, that stops, opens his doors and reveals a double lightning gun with ra-ta-ta sound, is used througout the sixties, seventies and even the eighties... still now robots are produced on this platform... but this martian is the first series ever produced, the mother of all robots :-)
This Horikawa attacking Martian as astronaut is in excellent condition and shows only very light playwear. There is no rust, there are no dings and only very minor scratches from beeing played with. The original box is also present and is in good original condition but it has some wear and repair in the corners. Of course the robot works as if it was new.
though attacking Martians are produced in large numbers, the all fullmetal robots and expecially the astornaut version demands a big popularity and are scarce. Later versions of this Martian were produced with plastic arms, legs and even the head was made of plastic in later versions.
This RARE variation of this Horikawa legend is not showing up too often with original box in this excellent and working condition.
