Alps – Television Spaceman first version
This first Television Spaceman ( or robot 🙂 is the first in the series and was build in 1961 by Alps in Japan. Made out of tin and battery operated ( runs on 2 D-Cell Batteries ) In action the robot walks forward with swinging arms, a movie in his chest, eyes that rotate and lighted kaleidoscope action. The antenna works as on / off switch.
Later versions with the red plastic antenna came with plastic battery cover, legs and different litho and slightly bigger tv screen. This first version however is the nicest one with the tinmade antenna..
I found this one close by in Belgium this time. The seller had I believe the robot as a kid. Not much been played with and kept in the original box for years.
The robot in absolute near mint condition, all original and complete and works like a charm. no flaws to mention on the robot.
The box is original and has some old tape repairs but overall an excellent+ box !
Hard to find robot in this condition. hard to ever upgrade. !
