ROBOT FRIDY JAPANESE KIT #01
This very rare resin kit was issued in Japan in the 1970's. This is the only kit I have
ever seen on this! I purchase this item in 1998 at the San Mateo antique & collectible
show. I have no clue where the Japanese came up with the name, "Friday" on this item?
Maybe, the show aired on Friday nites in Japan back in 1965-68?
I would like to thank, "Sunny" at Time Traveler Antique Toys & Collectibles in Culver City
Calif. for this great item. These guys have been great with me in finding rare items for
my collection over the past few years!
(*) Update: The term "Robot Friday" came from Robinson Crusoe-his assistant was named
Friday. So the Japanese adapted the name.
