Alps - Rocketman in Space Armor

RocketMan in Space Armor by Alps Japan was found in.... where else... Italy again :-)  The robot was offered to me by a good friend. He found the robot for me in an estate sale, a shed that was cleaned out and in which he found some tin toys and this awesome robot.

I dont think there is an other robot from the sixties that has more actions that this Alps ( made for Rosko ) Rocket Man in Armor. Where shall i start...Of course this robot is able to walk like most of its "brothers. His eyes and ears are illuminated and when you lift his Armor, it reveals a beautifully lithoed face of an astronaut. There is a spinning antenna on top, there are kaleidoscopes build in his chest, a kind of clock that counts down the moment the missiles at his back are fired and there is pumping cylinder action at the bottom of his chest.... wow. Alps (Rosko) Rocket Man in Space Armor is controlled by a 2 button remote control. 

When i received the robot i had to do not much more than testing and cleaning the robot a bit and wipe the years of dust off the robot.
The condition of this robot is near mint. The robot is in full working order and is free of any damage, rust or other flaws. The robot has never been messed with before and works like new. Only thing to mention is some very minor playwear. You can see that the robot was gently been played with and was kept very very well. Even better is that the robot is all original and comes with its original antenna AND... his 2 ORIGINAL rockets !!. Its really absolute scarce when you can find this robot with its original rockets... well.. this one has them both ! :)  One of the rockets has a small piece of one of the fins reglued.

The remote has the original insert as well and the wire is original for this robot.

The robot is also accompanied by its original box in excellent condition as well. There is some light wear, some clear tape on the inside and a small section missing in one of the sidepanels.
Overall condition of the box is really excellent. 

Together with the robot this makes this an almost unbeatable combination.. near mint robot in excellent original box. Perfectly working as well with original antenna AND original rockets !!!
Scarce combination, no upgrade ever needed on this one !!
