This is a very rare and highly collectable vintage robot.
He was Made in Taiwan by "JW" Toys and dates from the 1970s.
He is called the Lambda - I.
Sadly, he does not have his original box - but he is in good display condition with no losses or damages.
Of course, he is in working condition - and is operated by two large batteries which fit in his back.
This body is a hard plastic - in red, white and blue colours.
His operating switches are on top of his head - there are some tiny cracks to the plastic casing there - please check that out in my photographs - but this is really the only condition issue with his bodywork.
He is about 8 inches in height and six inches wide.
When you switch him on the white visor section and the front lights up - with a cosmic picture inside.
He also makes a wild robot noise and also plays a silly tune. His chest also lights up. He is certainly a bit noisy.
His arms can be moved about by hand, as designed
I am not sure if he is supposed to walk as his little legs seem to be locked into position - and he has friction wheels on his feet. But if he was originally designed to walk... this one sadly does not! I think he might have been designed to just push around with his friction feet.
Anyway - he remains a harder to find 1970s issue -
Boxed perfect robots of this model often fetch three figure sums - so if you would like one just for display in your collection without his box - this is priced to sell at a very fair price. He does look very cool on display.
I am also listing in my store another strange and probably rarer robot of similar date and design.
He would have to be limited to posting only in the UK.
