These are the rarest items to obtain within LIS collectibles. They also rank
as the #1 Sci-Fi price guide items. Issued in Japan by the Marusan in 1966.
They issued (7) dolls with plastic freezing tubs and boxes. These dolls were
never released outside of Japan, and the prices are skyrocking on these in
any condition. The Maureen and Judy dolls, as well as John, Major West are
all the same dolls. They just added the names on the freezing tubs. The hair
and eyes are also slightly different on Maureen and Judy dolls. Also, Will
and Penny are smaller dolls as well as the tubs, compared to the others in
The dolls included a neat photo insert of the entire cast, and the boxes came
with artwork with John Robinson flying on the jetpack and the Jupiter-2.
There are rumors that the Japanese also issued a Robot doll, but as of yet,
no one has ever seen one! New photo's courtesy of Ken Woo of Cupertino,
(*) Update: I am proud to annouce after 8 years of long searching I have
finally found and purchased the Will Robinson doll. This makes #5 of 7 dolls
completing this rare set of dolls. Today, (June 18, 2005) I received an e-mail
and photos on both John & Maureen Robinson dolls. The seller has a complete
set of these Japanese dolls, and maybe selling them on eBay. There son passed
away several years ago, and went to Japan quite often.
These are the first seen photos on these two dolls. Hopefully, I will be
purchasing these two dolls completing this rare collection.
Value: $2,000. (Each and Up!)
