1960s Yonezawa Japan Tin Wind Up Space Robot aka CONEHEAD Robot – ULTRA RARE.

Tin wind-up robot which was made in Japan by Yonezawa in 1967.

Conehead was a Japanese Superhero in the late sixties and was well known for his rockets in his feet, just like Astro Boy. It’s the robots head that makes him so special…big eyes and a very unusual shape. Conehead robot was made only for the Japanese market and maybe that is the reason why he is such a difficult robot to find in any condition.

THIS REALLY IS THE REAL DEAL AND A VERY SOUGHT-AFTER ROBOT FOR ANY COLLECTOR.

After testing the wind-up functionality, the robot advances with walking motion as expected and even still SPARKS!!! The switch in his chest panel is inactive.
