Robot | Large Space Trooper | Robby the Robot | Black
This high quality tin toy robot is reminiscent of the iconic 1950's Robby the Robot originally featured in the film Forbidden Planet. Featuring a wind-up action, this robot travels forward, then turns in sequence. The multi-coloured radar dish contained within its transparent dome head spins. Presented in a reproduction of the original lithographed box, this is a retro classic for collectors and big kids alike!
Every Tin Toy begins its life as a flat sheet of metal, which is printed and then formed into shape before being hand assembled to create a single finished toy. Being a very labour-intensive process, across history most traditional toy makers around the world moved away from tin toy production, thus leaving only a handful of producers that still make them today. People from around the world seek tin toys, either as serious collectors or merely to cherish the memories of their childhood and share with others.
