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 example in the UK where it was offered to me a long time ago. the seller and also me forgot about the robots a bit and recently i was contacted again if I had still interest in the robot.
The robot arrived today and as expected.. what a beauty ! wow.. The robot is hardly been played with and I really doubt if the robot has ever been played with at all !
Near mint to Mint robot… I have simply NEVER seen such a nice first version… as if he comes straight from the factory… spotless… all original and complete and works like a charm !
Accompanied by an excellent original box + all the inserts. The bos is missing a small section in one of the side panels, did its job perfectly: protecting the robot all those years… Stunning Robot !
Alps Television Spaceman of the first generation is hard…ehhh nopes impossible ! to find in this minty condition !
