Alps – Moon Explorer
This impressive robot is part of the legendary Alps ” Gang of Three”
Besides this impressive robot there is Rocketman in Space armor and Missile Robot.
The robot is made in Japan in the early sixties and i believe this was the first one that Alps produced. Made out of tin and plastic parts with amazing action, clock that rotates, blinking eyes, ears, moving pistons, swinging arms and walking with real robot sound.
One of the best robots Japan ever produced in the golden age. These Moon Explorers are extremely hard to find in good working condition. Because of a factory flaw, the clock got stuck and damaged the inside mechanism. Therefore, only go for perfect working examples, repair of these robots is hard and costly.
This example was part of a collection robots that I bought in Belgium in 2017. The condition of this robot is excellent, all original and complete but there is some very light corrosion in the battery compartment and some light corrosion around this area as well. Thank god its minimal but I have to mention it. You would probably not even notice it well in the pictures but I really want to mention it. Overall the robot shows some playwear and wear throughout but its in fact a very nice robot considering the robots age. Even better is the fact that the robot works fine with all the gizmo`s, lights, actions etc etc. He still does the job. Man what a fantastic robot this is !
Hard to find in ANY condition… Scarce Robot ! Must have Robot !
