Nomura – Mechanized Robby Robot ( First Version )
Build in 1957 by Nomura in Japan. ( This is the First Version with round knobs )
This is for sure THE robot icon that everybody knows: ROBBY THE ROBOT in its purest form. Build as an exact copy of the robot in the film Forbidden Planet. There were many variations made of this legendary robot but this is for sure the “mother” of all robbies 🙂 The actions are of course walking, flashing lights, spinning ears and the famous pumping pistons in his head. His arm swing around while he walks. Not like other robots, robby carries the 2 D-cells in his legs.
Nomura`s Mechanized Robot ( thats the official name of this toy ) is in excellent to near mint condition and is in 100 % original. Its the first version build by Nomura ( visible by the Knobs of the battery compartments, ( The knobs are round ) There is no rust there are no dings, never messed with before, no flaws to mention. The battery compartments are clean. The dome is original, no cracks. He works really fine and strong with all the actions, lights and pumping pistons. I found this example in Belgium early 2018 where it was part of a small collection robots ( no spacetoys, only robots 🙂 The collection was really high end and build over several years. this robby was part of this collection.
Mechanized Robby Robot is hard to find in this excellent and FULL working condition. He really works fine with all the actions, he walks perfect and the mechanism in his foot works perfect. His pistons pump, he lights up and both his ears spin perfect.
This Mechanized Robby Robot comes with its original box in excellent condition. A repaired tear in the middle of the toplid and some minor wear are keeping this original box from higher grading.
A fantastic combination of Robby with original Box. Hard to find first version in this condition !
