Horikawa – Attacking Martian ( Brown Variation )
“The mother of all robots” This is the best way to describe this Japanese made robot by Horikawa, build in 1962. As far as I know this version comes in three colors: silver, gold and brown. This platform, a walking robot, that stops, opens his doors and reveals a double lightning gun with ra-ta-ta sound, is used throughout the sixties, seventies and even the eighties… still now robots are produced on this platform… but this martian is the first series ever produced, the mother of all robots 🙂
This Horikawa attacking Martian in brown is in very good to excellent and full working condition. The robot shows some normal play wear but is complete, all original and works perfectly. Clean battery compartment. The robot was VERY dirty when I found it and I took the time for a first cleanup so you can see what is underneath the dust :-)… If you buy this robot then take the time for a good cleaning and a polish job on the chrome parts and the robot is excellent +
The robot is accompanied by its original box in very good to excellent condition as well. The box shows some wear throughout and has some tears as shown in the pictures. Overall a very nice box that displays perfectly with the robot.
This robot was part of a collection I found in 2017 In Italy ( Bari ) along with many other horikawa robots.
though attacking Martians are produced in large numbers, the all metal “fly-eyes” demands a big popularity and are scarce. Later versions of this Martian were produced with plastic arms, legs and even the head was made of plastic in later versions.
Complete, original and working Attacking Martians are harder and harder to find every year… Iconic Robot from the Sixties !
