The classic Mechanized Robot

If there is one robot that could represent the "Golden Age" of space toys, that would be it. So famous he even appears on covers of books and magazines related to the hobby (see bibliography on the right).

Mechanized Robot, Osaka (copy of Nomura toy),
Japan,  2001 (1957) 

Again, big copy of the famous Robby Robot from the 1956 movie "Forbidden Planet". Since toymakers could care less about paying royalties at that time, ....they just copied it and gave it another name...


The  poster of the movie !
