OTTI – Mechanized Robby Robot Color Samples / Prototypes.
Color Sample: Gold Plated
Unique Example, only a few of these were ever made because of the difficult production method.
For every robot there is a try out, a first run and a color sample and that is exactly what you are looking at here. Showing the most rare and scarce one in the series but there is more !
These color samples were made in Japan by Osaka Tin Toy Institute in the nineties. where they made and reproduced the black robby in quite impressive numbers, they also made some limited series in different colors. The robots that are shown here are all color sample runs and some of them were made in limited editions but others were not.
I located these color samples in the workshop of Mr Shinji Miyazawa who kept them there for many years. After he passed away i got many of his projects, tools and prototypes along with many drawings and samples. These series of 15 Mechanized Robby Robots were all part of that legacy. All of these color samples are unique and most of them were never taken into production in this form. They are all unique and one of a kind.
The condition of this Gold Plated Robby is near mint and some light scratching from storage is keeping it from higher grading. Unplayed with example in FULL working condition !
None of these robots is numbered, simply because it are all color samples. This Gold plated Robby comes with its special Osaka Tin Toy Box with all the inserts.
Extremely Rare and Scarce Robot !! Only a few of these are known to exist !
