Vintage KO Yoshiya Japan High Wheel Robot

About 8.5 inches tall, this terrific tin robot walks forward with spinning gears in the chest. This version is the tough to find 6 gear version.

The robot is in great condition. The antenna no longer functions as an On/Off switch so the robot will constantly run. The stopping action on these robots was engaged with a small rubber piece on the bottom of the antenna - it frequently deteriorated due to age and ceased to function. In our estimation, something like this is not worth opening the robot to repair. No longer sparks.

The box is in good condition with a small side seam repair and minor scuffs/dings.
