Masudaya (Modern Toys of Japan) "Non-Stop Lavender Robot" - this is an original mega rare Robot from 1959, highly prized by robot collectors from what is known as the Golden Era circa 1960's and is one of the "Gang of 5" rare robots from that period. Owned by the vendor from new it stands at 15"/38cm high, lilac in colour with tinprinted detail.

The robot is fitted with the on/off toggle switch to the front and a clean battery compartment to the underside, untested but fitted with mystery action wheels to the baseplate, very light age related wear and minor spidering to the vintage paint work but otherwise a Good Plus example for display and is the first such example of the Lavender Robot that Vectis have had.
