Alps - Robot ( also called: Door Robot )

I found this robot in Italy on a local toymarket where it was somewhat hidden in a box with other toys... The robot was found by the previous owner in an old toyshop in the center of Milano. In the old city centre are some very nice antique and toyshops and i was there before a couple of years ago. 

The official name of this fantastic robot is simply: ROBOT.. but we all know this robot better under the name: Door Robot... Why this name ! ?. Well pretty simple.. the robot has a little door in his chest that can be opened. inside you see the robots mechanism AND.. through this door you can change the lightbulb as well.  

Made in Japan in the late fifties, made out of tin with a plastic dome and the robot is powered by a remote control that takes 2 D-Cell batteries. In action the robot walks forward with swinging arms and lighted action. pressing the second button stops the robot and his dome starts to spin around with areals spinning inside his dome.

The condition of this robot is excellent to near mint and only a crack in the mouthpiece is keeping it from higher grading !!. The robot shows some minor playwear but is in fantastic condition. all original and complete robot with original hands, wire and remote. I have had quite some of these robots passing by in my collection but this example is by far the best i have seen in many years !

The robot works fine and strong with all the actions. never been messed with before, fantastic robot. You will not be dissapointed with this example, no upgrade ever needed on this one !

Hard to find robot. In this prestine condition a very touch one to find !
