Daiya – Cragstan X-70 Astronaut
Made in Japan in the sixties by Daiya ( for Cragstan,not for Rosko ) This Astronaut X-70 is the third variation known but is not only different in color but also in name and litho. It’s a rarely seen robot in the scene. It walks around with a rotating antenna. Suddenly he stops and he raises his BIG Gun and starts to fire it at will with a loud Ra-ta-ta sound and red flashing lights. Then he lowers his gun again and moves on to the next victim. There are 3 versions known of this Robot: one in blue red and green. Blue is the most common one, green the most rare so I guess red will be somewhere in between 🙂
The robot is excellent and works fine. minor playwear and its the best example I ever had. Never opened or messed with before and even the original antenna is present. Only thing to mention is some light corrosion in the battery cover on the inside. Please refer to the pictures for this. Its minor but it’s there and needs to be mentioned. Its only on the inside of the cover. The box showed is a professionally made reproduction. Still an above average example of this great astronaut. A very hard to find robot in this condition.
