Nomura – Mechanized Robby Robot ( Second Version )
Build in 1957 by Nomura in Japan. ( This is the Second version )
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 and complete. Its the second version build by Nomura ( visible by the Knobs of the battery compartments, the first version had round knobs, the second version didn`t. ) The battery compartments are clean, the robot works fine and strong with pumping pistons, light, walking action and great look :). I found this example in Italy in the summer of 2018. The robot was very dirty and needed a good clean and a new driving belt for its pistons. I took the robot apart, installed a new belt and revised the engine because it did not run smooth anymore. the years of dust and dirt made the engine run slow and weak. Engine was professionally cleaned, all the wires checked and build up again.
After cleaning the rest of the robot it turned out to be a near mint example… one of the nicest ones i had in years.
works like new and besides some minor play wear the robot is flawless. There is no box for this robot.
