RARE 1950'S MODERN TOYS JAPAN MARS ROCKET ROBOT NMIB
Description

The Mars Rocket is a super rare space toy made in Japan by Modern Toys - includes the original box. Circa the 1950's.

The battery operated space ship works perfectly - the action begins with the astronaut raising his hand while the control panel flashes a red light. When his hand is lowered, the drive wheels engage propelling the rocket forward, the wing mounted gun lights flash, and a loud cannon firing sound is heard. Steerable front wheel.

The toy measures 14.5 inches long and is in excellent condition. The rocket has minor scattered nicks and t but little, if any, play wear. Clean battery box with a few pin points of corrosion, and a couple of the wheels are slightly out of round - both very minor points but we like to be a descriptive as possible. The brown seen on a couple of wheels was some cardboard from box storage and has since been removed.

Super clean dome with only very minor scuffing - one pin head size blemish which appears to be from the manufacturing process.

The original box is warped (mostly the bottom portion) and has some tape repairs - but still is bright and clean.

A very difficult toy to find in this condition with the original box. Beautiful.
