REMCO ROBOT (GREEN-RED-BLACK)
REMCO LOST IN SPACE ROBOT - 1966 - RARE RED W/GREEN DOME &
CLAWS - Does not compute does not compute...
Rarer than the good Dr. Smith telling the truth, this is the

first produced toy Robot of the famous mechanical man from
Lost in Space, in a very scarce color combination. Molded

Typically, this baby-boomer favorite is found with clear
components. But to find an example with the clear green parts
is indeed difficult. And he's in excellent shape! The overall
piece appears to be almost new, with all body parts
unscratched, tight-fitting and clean. Both left and right
cardboard footplates are bright, colorful and tightly in
place. The ever hard-to-find battery bar is indeed present and
fits tightly in the underside. His arms work perfectly, both
levers are clean with tight springs and his claw hands move
freely. In addition, all three wheels are present, with the
rear steering wheel rubber intact. Turn him on and he
functions well, with a strong motor driving him forward and
lights blinking bright. Top dome, which is ALWAYS a problem,
has both metal rings and only slight splitting at the seam.
Dome, claws, chest plate and front panel lights are, again,
molded in clear green, all being unmarked and glass clean.
And, yes, finally, this prize specimen comes with its original
box, in good condition, with an unmarked, vivid color photo.

this ultra-rare Robot again! Does not compute, does not
