Taiyo Blink A Gear Robot In Original Box C9+ For Sale
BLINK-A-GEAR ROBOT produced by Taiyo in 1969. The
Blink-A-Gear appears in the 1969 FAO Schwarz Toys Catalog and a
Gamble-Aldens Christmas catalog for the same year. Walks with moving
gears and flashing lights. Straddling the tin age and the plastic age he has plastic arms, feet and legs - otherwise tin. A
reworking of the 1967 Wheel-A-Gear robot he has meshing plastic gears which rotate with flashing lights, machine noise, swinging arms and blinking eyes. All functions work perfectly and he walks strongly. Totally clean battery compartment. One of the biggest of the classic Japanese tin robots he measures an impressive 37cm or 14.5 inches tall. This example is to all intents and purposes mint. No signs of playwear. The original box with its fantastic space graphics is a C9+, crisp and with no tears or missing paper. Original box bottom also C9+. Basically, you wont find a better example of this robot and original box.
