Alps – Rocketman in Space Armor
RocketMan in Space Armor by Alps Japan was found in…. where else… Italy again 🙂 The robot was offered to me by a good friend. He found the robot for me in an estate sale, a shed that was cleaned out and in which he found some tin toys and this awesome robot.
I dont think there is an other robot from the sixties that has more actions that this Alps ( made for Rosko ) Rocket Man in Armor. Where shall i start…Of course this robot is able to walk like most of its “brothers. His eyes and ears are illuminated and when you lift his Armor, it reveals a beautifully lithoed face of an astronaut. There is a spinning antenna on top, there are kaleidoscopes build in his chest, a kind of clock that counts down the moment the missiles at his back are fired and there is pumping cylinder action at the bottom of his chest…. wow. Alps (Rosko) Rocket Man in Space Armor is controlled by a 2 button remote control.
When i received the robot i had to do not much more than testing and cleaning the robot a bit and wipe the years of dust off the robot.
The condition of this robot is excellent. The robot is in full working order and is showing some normal play wear but overall the robot is in a very good condition.
Complete and in working condition. Both the Rockets are original! and that is very very rare for these robots. One rocket is missing 2 fin tips and from the other one is the red part a bit cracked but still both are fully functional. I would not recommend to fire the rockets because they will break further for sure.
The remote and the wire is original for this robot. The Yellow antenna is a professional made 3D printed reproduction made by VST ( by me 🙂 !
Alps – Rocketman in Armor is one of the best and most attracting robots made in the golden age !… an absolute MUST have !
