Linemar – Spaceman aka Porthole Robot.
In the astronaut series, this robot is probably one of the hardest to find. Made in the late fifties by Linemar Toys. The robots official name is Spaceman but its better known as “Porthole” Robot. In fact it’s not even a robot, its a human in an astronaut suit 🙂
Made in beautiful red lithographed tin and remote controlled. I have no idea to be honest why this robot is so hard to find. Fact remains that porthole robots are almost never seen in the open market.
In action this robot walks forward with light in his helmet and swinging arms. The remote takes 2 D-cell batteries.
The robots condition is excellent to near mint. The robot is complete and all original and works like a charm. Only some light playwear is to mention. The remote and wire are original.
Rare and Scarce robot, this is the first nice example I have seen in my collecting years. Comes with professional made reproduction box.
