Waco - Hook Robot

The original name of this robot is as small as the robot itself. There is not much more than ROBOT on the box of this legendary robot but its well known as "HOOK" robot these days by collectors.
The robot got his name because of the hook at the back of his head. Waco Hook Robot is the smallest skirted robot in the scene and I can understand why the robot is so scarce these days: The action is rolling forward with a turning head, thats it. I can imagine it was not a very popular robot in the sixties for children.  

I think that is the reason why the robot is scarce and hard to find these days.  Hook Robot was made in Japan by Waco in the late fifties and was made in 2 colorvariations, dark- and lightblue. I believe there is a lightblue with a chrome mouthpiece as well. Normally I can say easily which colorvariation is more wanted but not with these robots.. I think they are so rare and scarce that it does not matter too much which one you have on your shelves.

I found this robot in Italy ( Rome in 2014) . The robot was part of a big collection robots and spacetoys. 

This example still has its original hook, works fine and strong and is all original. There are some scratches and minor oxidationspots as shown in the pictures but... who cares...
Its an all original HOOK robot, legendary and much searched for in any condition !

Very hard to find robot in any condition, scarce !!
