Presenting a wonderful Vintage 1960s Taiyo Japan Blink-A-Gear Robot. He is Battery Operated and in Near Mint condition with his original Box. The Original cardboard packing piece to protect the head is also included, although it has been drawn on by a child at some point. The top section of the inner box has a large piece cut away as shown, or it may have come like that from the factory Im not sure. The outer box is in good condition with relatively minor wear and tear as shown in the photos.
The robot is in very good to excellent condition, his green eyes blink, his chest lights up and most of the chest gears move, although a couple are slightly askew and not catching the cogs of their neighbours, particularly the blue gear. The walking function works perfectly, his arms sway and legs move smoothly. He has no dents, rust or paint damage I can see, the battery box is super clean and looks basically unused.
Anything else you might need more info on please ask, this is a rare robot in great condition with original box. He will be sent very well protected, boxed up in lots of bubble wrap.
