Vtg 1950s Tin Wind-up Mechanical Walking Spaceman Robot Toy–linemar/marx -japan For Sale

 Vtg 1950s Tin Wind-up Mechanical Walking Spaceman Robot Toy–linemar/marx -japan

Very cool original vintage lithographed tin wind-up robot in working condition! 1950s Linemar tin robot toy, “Mechanical Walking Spaceman”, made in Japan. 5-3/4” tall blue tin metal robot with red plastic arms, legs, top of head and facial features. Colorful lithographed tin torso with cool detailed imagery – simulated buttons, dials and rocket pack. Classic Space Age robot, super rare Baby Boomer toy!

One leg is partly missing, but he still works! When key is gently wound Spaceman’s arms raise and lower, & legs move up and down – before he broke his leg the Spaceman may have walked forward, now he walks in place. Gears make satisfying “cranky” sound as winding goes through its cycle. Stop/Go lever works to let you to stop the motion if you want.

Condition: Despite one broken leg/missing foot this robot is in very nice, extremely clean working condition. Wind-up key still works, robot moves up & down when wound, but key is tight so should not be wound too too far, just enough for robot to move for several seconds. Arms are securely attached with springs & move easily. Metal is clean & bright with just a few miniscule rust spots & a few very light scratches - to be expected from an item this age. Except for his broken leg all other plastic pieces show no breaks, chips or scratches. Stop/Go lever works well – action easily stopped & started.

Please Note: I have treated my childhood robot with TLC, so because the key is tight I wind it very gently & advise you to do the same.

About Linemar toys: Linemar was an import subsidiary of the US toy company Louis Marx & Co. established in the 1950s to facilitate Marx’s importation of mechanical and battery-operated toys from Japan. The Linemar brand name appeared on Japan-manufactured toys made by a number of Japanese companies for Marx from the early 1950s up until approx. 1960/1961. By 1961 Marx realized the value of their company name & by 1963 all Marx toys, no matter where they were manufactured, were branded Marx and the Linemar name disappeared.
