Linemar - Spaceman aka Porthole Robot.
In the astronaut series, this robot is probably one of the hardest to find. Made in the late fifties by Linemar Toys. The robots official name is Spaceman but its better known as "Porthole" Robot.
In fact its not even a robot, its a human in an astronaut suit :-)
Made in beautifull red lithograhped tin and remote controlled. I have no idea to be honnest why this robot is so hard to find. Fact remains that porthole robots are almost never seen in the open market.
In action this robot walks forward with light in his helmet and swinging arms. The remote takes 2 D-cell batteries.
The robots condition is excellent to near mint. The robot is complete and all original and works like a charm. Only some light playwear is to mention. The remote and wire are original. There is some residu from tape or paint on the remote. I did not try to remote it because i dont want to damage the remotes paint. Besides this the robot is a hard to ever upgrade example.
Rare and Scarce robot, this is the first nice example I have seen in my collecting years.
