Linemar - Mr Mercury Space Robot Japan Mr. Mercury first showed up in Sears Magazine in 1961 and was only produced in this particular year in this variation. 3 variations were made in total and the body was also used for Jupiter Robot. The action is walking, bending, opening and closing arms and also the arms can go up and down. Its pretty clear the Japanese "stole" these actions from Dux Astroman that patented these actions in 1957 allready. Dux Astroman was a big hit and Linemar floated along with this succes.Back to the Robot now. This version with a (non working) light on his head ( There was never a lightbulb installedin the headlight with these robots ).is the first and most desirable one. Its also the hardest to find version of this popular robot. The toplight on his head is NEVER working with these robots simply because there is NO bulb installed :) But the name is illuminated and this makes the robot ubercool ! The head with 2 astronauts inside a control panel was also used on the other 2 variations, talking robot and Jupiter robot. Second version of this robot lacks the toplight. illuminated name and plastic arms and the third version was made in gold and is the most common one.The condition of this robot is excellent and the robot is in working order with all the functions working. walking, grabbing, up and down and bending The remote is missing a small piece as shown in the pictures.A rare and hard to find robot in working condition. Plz refer to the pictures for the condition.
