Vintage Linemar Mr Mercury Tin Robot From Japan For SaleVintage and much sought after Linemar Mr Mercury remote controlled tin robot, manufactured in Japan. He is in excellent shape overall with the following exceptions:--one hinge on the remote unit is broken
--the movement mechanisms are not working but the lights do turn on when you press either the Bend or Walk buttons
--hand pads have worn downIt has been stored away for 40+ years so it is unlikely that any of the internal mechanisms are severely damaged; someone with mechanical expertise could very possibly get it fully functional again.It has a catalog sticker (Sears?) on the torso identifying it as 60-4820/P.40. (Assuming that it means catalog item number 60-4820 on page 40)We are not experts on these types of tin toys, but according to other items, this is the original model of the Mr Mercury series; it is the one most desirable and also the one hardest to find.
