Cragstan - Astronaut

click here to return to the previous page..

Made in the late fifties for Cragstan by Yonezawa in Japan. This astronaut is a much searched for spacetoy and I will explain why...
There were 2 colorvariations build but both with a child / boy`s face.
This one however has an astronaut face. You will always see thise astronauts with the boyface but almost never with this astronauts face.  The Crankwound mechanism is my favorite. swing the handle and the toy comes to life. turn it as hard as you can and let the robot go, wow  great action.  The astronaut is build out of lithographed tin.

The condition is very good to excellent, all original and complete and working perfect.
There is normal playwear throughout as you can expect from an old robot made in the fifties. Still an above avarage example of this rare and scarce astronaut.

Very hard to find with astronaut`s face.
