Yonezawa - Mr. Planet
|click here to return to the previous page..|
The first see thru robot I ever owned was one that was made in HongKong. Later I found out that one was just a copy of the original. The Original is made by Yonezawa, yes correct: MR PLANET.
MR PLANET, made by Yonezawa in the mid 1960`s is a robot I never have seen before. The " knock-offs " made later in the seventies in Hongkong are allready scarce robots but this Mr Planet is much much more rare and scarce. The robot is made out of quality plastic ( not the cheap plastic that is used on the later see thru robots ) and has lithoed tinplate inside. In action the robot walks forward with blinking lights, spinning gears and clicking Sound.
The condition of this robot is excellent and only a few minor stresscracks in the batterycompartment are keeping the robot from higher grading. if you take a good look to the pictures you see a metal tab inside the batterycompartment. That tab has been factory bend but a little too much and this caused minor cracks into the plastic. This is common for these robots by the way, I never saw one without these stressmarks. The robot works perfectly and strong with all the actions and is 100 % original.
Surprisingly there is NO batterycover but the robot was manufactured without one :) ! The batteries just snap into the back and a clever mechanism prevent them from falling out, clever thinkworks from those Japanese :) !
Yonezawa`s Mr. Planet is one of the rarest early plastic robots made in Japan in the sixties. You will not soon see this one again !! Promise !
VERY rare and scarce robot in ANY condition !
