Modern Toys - Space Guard MS-61

I had this tank as a child.... oh not exactly this one of course ( wish I did :-)  but a similar one based on the same platform as this space guard. I believe it was called M-40 tank, a pretty common military tank that you still see around. In fact my son plays with that tank now every day... can you imagine.. I had that tank as a child, played with it a LOT.... then it went on the attic for 25 years, and now my son plays with it... cool or what. :-)

THIS tank however is a different story... not as common as the M-40   in fact this one is very very very rare and scarce... I found it in Italy last summer on my travel through little shops hunting for old tin toys...
Never expected to see this one ever. This Tank was made in the late sixties by Modern Toys in Japan. In action this tank is controlled by a remote that takes 3 D-cells. the little controlstick allows you to let the tank go forward, backwards, rotate the center and fire the rockets.
Same as the M-40 I had as a child, only that one fired a dart, this one fires real rockets :)

Then.... take a look at the litho, WOW... where the M-40 tank is boring and military, this one is awesome. The box art is cool and the combination is one you will never see again soon.

Condition of this MS-61 Space Guard is old stock, near mint to mint condition and only the box suffered a bit from storage, some light wear.  All original tank, remote, wire and rockets.... even insers is present. Oh and did I mention he works like new !! ??

You can not go wrong with this example.... very rare spacetoy !
