Take a seat and take some time to read the story behind this robot, here we go :) .....

Of course, everybody knows these great robots. They are made in the fifties, sixities, seventies and even in the early eighties..nineties.. and even now these robots are still produced and why.. because when you think of a robot then you see THIS robot, pretty simple.

When I installed my new windows version I could choose a username password and an icon and guess who popped up... Yep, this robot so lets face its, its one of the best robots ever made..

I hear you think, why this story because we all DO know this robot but then you make a mistake :) THIS is a variation of this legendary robot that nobody has ever seen before !! First the robot is made in the late 1950`s, no doubt about that. but where all the grey robots from this timeperiod are marked Linemar, this one is marked Yonezawa.  The blue and green variations were also made by Yonezawa but not the silver ones, at least not marked this way but there is more.

Take a close look at the box and you will see its not a smoking spaceman but a smoking ROBOT !  huh ? Ok, Linemar made this box with this lettertype too but this box is not marked Linemar but YONEZAWA, same as the robot. A combination that even the experts had never seen before.

I found the robot in Italy and bought it from the first owner who had this robot as a kid. Never played much with the robot. He offered me the robot allready 2 years agoo and I never heard of him afterwards and suddenly he contacted me that I could come and pick up the robot, wow I was VERY happy !!

The condition of this smoking robot is near mint to mint. No flaws and the robot is really awesome !! I think I never had a better example of this smoking robot. The box is awesome, nobody has EVER seen this boxvariation before, the text smoking robot with these type of letters AND marked Yonezawa... UNIQUE and probably one of the few in the world...
The robot is stamped Y  and made in Japan at the back, also never saw this type of marking before on a grey smoking robot.

Plz make no mistakes, you are looking at an unique, scarce and VERY rare robot. This one you will NEVER see again, I am pretty sure about that !
