retrojc Store Hello, I am offering this Tin, Rubber, Etc red Rosko robot spaceman toy is a tin toy produced in Japan for export to an American market. In the 1950s and 1960s, its manufacturer, Nomura, specialized in producing robot-themed metal toys (including several versions of an unlicensed "Robby" robot from the film "Forofferden Planet"). In post-WWII Japan, producing these metal toys began as a way to tap into an international market for "penny toys" or cheap playthings, but developed by the late 1950s into a industry manufacturing creatively-designed, complex toys with moving parts and/lights that competed successfully with Western toy makers. This Rosko battery-powered astronaut, which can be viewed as either a human space traveler or a futuristic robot, blended the American fascination with outer space with the Japanese fad for robots. Please note battery cover door missing as per photo 4, scratches, marks, Etc... toy does not work approx. 13" high, sold as is. Thanks, Craig
