1970’s Horikawa Space Walk Man Metal Robot with Light / Sound Action
1970’s Horikawa Space Walk Man Metal Robot with Light / Sound Action

Year: Late 1970’s
Manufacturer: Horikawa Item ME 100
Condition: Very good condition robot and package
First edition vintage collectable

Horikawa was a master of toy robot design, beginning in the 1959 with wind up robots and continuing through the 1990’s. Horikawa robots have a unique style with evolving features over time while maintaining a familiar look and feel.

Designed to command attention, this is a late 1970’s edition of the Horikawa all tin robot in the original box. 12″ in height with an all-tin lithographed black body and blue metal robot feet. The robot looks great just standing still. But the moment you flip the switch on his back the action really begins!

The robot starts walking, then the doors on his chest swing open and his built in robo-guns start blasting the room with bright flashing lights and loud shooting sounds. Then he spins, rotating at the hips 3 times, shooting the whole time, before his doors close and he advances for more carnage. Not subtle! Lots of amazing light, sound and moving action. See the video below.

We purchase this item in 1980. No rust or corrosion. The back of the robot’s block head has a few scratches, but otherwise it’s in great shape and works well. The battery compartment is clean, and uses 2 D batteries (not included). This is a finely crafted item and a great example of a well-designed mechanical robot toy and makes a great gift.

The package is 6 1/2″ x 5″ x 12 3/4″ in size and is in good condition with a few dings and creases but looks nice.

Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only 1 available.

1970’s Litho Tin Play Toys Set of 2
1970’s Litho Tin Play Toys Set of 2

Year: 1970’s
Manufacturer: Unknown
Condition: Good to very good condition
Vintage collectables

A pair of tin play toys, one a wind up and the other a squeeze-style action toy. They are lithographed tin, probably made by the same company. The pair of wrestlers has a “Made in India” sticker on the underside. Squeezing the U shaped piece under the two wrestlers causes them to rock back and forth. It’s a simple but clever idea. 5 1/2” tall x 3” wide. The chicken has a key to wind it up. Remove the key, set the chicken on a flat surface and he starts hopping. The chicken is 1 1/2” tall x 2” wide. There’s a little paint missing where the two wrestlers rub against each other but they both work great!
