Alps – Door Robot
This in the 1950 build robot by Alps has an original name: ROBOT, but its the small door in its chest that makes this robot famous and therefore better known as Alps Door Robot. Build in Japan in 1956 this somewhat strange robot belongs to the top 5 of most sought after robots. Its controlled and powered by a remote control with 2 buttons. The first button makes the robot walk and shows the light show in his mouth. pressing the second button makes the robot stop walking and his head starts to rotate showing all kind of colors and spinning antennas inside the clear dome. But for sure the nicest feature is the door which can be opened and gives access to the robots mechanism. Its also handy to replace the bulb 🙂
I found this example.. .ehhh here in the Dutch Caves where it was stored away for years and…. totally forgotten :). its AWEsome to find toys in your own workshop from which you dont even know you had them hahaha
as i keep track of all my buys and sells over the years, i found out that this one was found in Italy and was part of a big collection i bought back in 2013. About the robots condition.. i can be short.. near mint robot, flawless example and fully operational..The robot is complete and all original. NO upgrade needed on this example… !
