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.
Alps Moon Explorer 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 Alps 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 stored away for years in Belgium on a dark and full attic. I saw it years ago and spotted it again recently and this time I thought it was time to get the robot out of his “prison” and bring him back into the open ….. I can be pretty short about the robots condition: Near mint robot, all original and complete and in perfect working condition. NO upgrade needed on this example. Accompanied by the seldom seen original box in good to very good condition. the box is original but has several tape repairs and is covered totally in plastic. I found the box in this condition. It was stored away for many years like this.
Hard to find in ANY condition… Scarce Robot and even more scarce box !
