Virtue Industrie Co. Ltd – Robot V1 Radio Control
This robot is unique and special for several reasons, let me explain. First its made in the late seventies which is quite old for a plastic high quality Chinese Robot.. Yes you read well: China !
We all know that China of course produces masses of Robot but NOT in the late seventies !, that domain still belonged to Taiwan, Japan and HongKong… China hopped in later, much later to this robot industrie.
Than, there is a Manufacturers name known for this robot ! China Robots are always made in China, that’s it, no more information.. This one is made by Virtue Industrie Co. Ltd.
But there is more… when you got a robot from China in Hand…its mostly a miracle it survives even when you look at it. China was and is simply not known for the best quality plastic robot…
How different is this robot… It weights 1.7 KG !! and thats WITHOUT the batteries installed. The robot is HEAVY and I have NO idea what they all put inside and made it from. The plastic is sturdy, strong, durable and feels like tin. Really a high quality made robot, something you simply dont expect from a china robot from the late seventies. My friend Xris told me that the robot was made short after the first Star wars Movies and inspired on that Movie. Unlicensed and he told me there is a second variation based on R2D2. That means that this MUST be the Chinese version of 3CPO 🙂
THe robot is all original, complete and has never been played with before. No flaws to mention, even the original stickers are perfect and undamaged. The remote control is present and complete and so is the original instruction manual. Accompanied by the original box.
Near mint to mint robot with excellent to near mint box. Absolute stunning condition !
The robot is in full working condition and is remote controlled. with moving arms, walking action, sound and lights, very cool to see this big “chinese 3CPO” in action 🙂
This is the very first time I ever have seen this robot. it never crossed my path before and I was not able to find any documentation or pictures of it on the web as well.
an impressive big and heavy robot ( 45 CM in height ) Absolute rare and scarce robot !
