Modern Toys – NON STOP Robot aka Lavender Robot.
I have seen a lot of Lavender Robot over the years, but this example can fit perfectly in the quality top 3 of them 🙂 This robot was part of a big collection high end robots and space toys that I found recently. This robot came with 2 other Gangmembers… more about them later… The collector had to sell the robots for some reason and I was able to buy most of them. this absolute beautiful boxed Lavender Robot was one of them.
This legendary member of the gang of five is the most beautiful lithographed robot ever made in the golden age. The Litho is outstanding and this robot looks more than a piece of exclusive art then it looks like a child toy.
Build by Modern Toys in 1959 in Japan, this pretty big robot is an icon for this time period. Called by some enthousiasts: “lady robot” because of the pink / purple color. Masudaya ( modern toys ) created 5 of these skirted robots: lavender, target, train, radicon and machine robot. Note that these names are given to these robots during the years… Lavender is originally called: non-stop robot for example, but everybody knows this bot better as “Lavender”. When switched on with the special on-off switch on the front, the robot starts to move around with mystery bump&go action, flashing lights in the head, mouth and ears and swinging arms. The arms have special ” claws” that can actually grap and hold objects.
I can be short about the robots condition: Near Mint Robot, Best i have seen in years ! Works fine and strong, has never been messed with before, a Top Piece ! Accompanied by its Original Box in excellent to near mint condition. The box is original and has all the original inserts ! Box has some minor professional repairs. Looking at the box I think the restorations are done by Anthony Restorations in the USA. An absolute stunning robot with ditto box… if you are looking for the best of the best than dont look further.. impossible to upgrade… !
Rare and scarce robot in this condition !
