Alps – Mr. Robot the Mechanical Brain.
from the box: ” This robot was exclusively imported to the United States by Flare Import Corp. New York”
This shows again the influence of the US market on the Japanese Robots in the golden age…
Mr Robot is what we would call nowadays a “hybrid” robot perhaps. Not only the robot has a clockwork mechanism, it also has place for a single C-Cell battery to power the lights. Made in Japan in the late fifties by Alps. Made out of tin with a clockwork mechanism and lights that are powered by a battery. In action the robot walks forward with flashing lights.
Mr Robot the Mechanical Brain is a classical robot that is rare and scarce with original box. Hard to find combination.
The condition of the robot is excellent, all complete and the robot works fine and has both original bulbs. The windup mechanism works fine and strong. There is some playwear throughout the robot but it survived time very well.
Accompanied by its original box in excellent condition. The box has a small hole in the toplid but that’s about all to mention on this box. The original instruction manual is also present.
Where the robot is very hard to find in this condition… with the box seldom seen…. Rare and scarce robot.
