Modern Toys – 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 small collection high end robots and spacetoys that I found in Belgium and Brussels early 2018. The collector had to sell the robots for some reason and I was able to buy most of them. this absolute beautiful lavender 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 which it basicly is 🙂
Build by Modern Toys in 1959 in Japan, this pretty big robot is an icon for this timeperiod. 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 !
Only some minor playwear is keeping the robot from higher grading. no upgrade needed on this one !
Rare and scarce robot in this condition !
