Super rare Horikawa Secret Weapon Space Scout battery operated tin robot. First the bad, or sad. It is currently not working. It was working, all 5 actions. Walked, arms moved, gun door opened and guns fired with lights and sound.I was watching, enjoying and thinking I should get some video of it when it suddenly stopped. I tried another set of batteries with no luck. I don't know the first thing about fixing these so I didn't try anything else.
Unfortunately, the gun door was open when it stopped and it remains open. I didn't want to try closing it in fear of doing damage. The robot itself honestly looks like it has never been played with, or played with very little.
Please view all pictures carefully and use the zoom feature to determine condition for yourself. The only things I noticed were as follows. There are some areas of paint damage to the red hat mostly on the edges. Looks like where it has been rubbing in the box.Some discoloration to the robots " ears". I don't think the finish is coming off them though because there were no flakes or pieces in the box. The on/off lever also appears to be discolored, like a brownish color.
There is a very fine scratch about an inch long on the upper part of the right leg. Also the top edge of the battery door shows some rubbing to the paint from moving around in the box, but it is not through the paint, the sheen of the paint is just a little different.Other than those items I didn't notice any other damage or signs of deterioration. The battery box is clean and shows no indication of battery leakage at any point. The box is also included.
Please view pics for condition. Some creases and one corner of the lid is torn. There also is what appears to be a small water stain across front. I have tried to be sure to point any defects that I could find, but please view the pics to make your own judgement on condition. Just trying to honestly describe what I see.So, again, be sure to examine the pictures closely, and feel free to ask any questions or request any additional pictures.
