1970’s Space Patrol Rocket Ship with Robot Pilot
Manufacturer: Metalmania Item MF742
Condition: Very good condition toy and packaging
First edition vintage collectable
This is a bright, colorful, very cool classic 50’s style spaceship piloted by a classic blockhead style robot. There is no copyright date on the item or box, but it was purchased in 1981, so it’s likely from the 1970’s or earlier. The entire toy is made of lithographed tin, except for a plastic steering wheel and windshield. It’s a “friction” style toy, which has an internal wind-up motor. Give it a push and it makes a clicking sound as it rolls on wheels. The paint job is in very good condition, with some minor wear marks on the nose and one side fin, but is very minor. The windshield is still crystal clear.
The outer box is classic retro artwork, measures 13 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ x 5″ and includes the original cardboard inserts. The box is in great shape, with very minor wear shelf wear mostly on the corners. There are no tears or repairs. Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only 1 available.
