Killer walker!

That thing's GREAT!

I actually saw one in nice condition on eBay maybe six months ago...I forget how much it went for, but it was a lot! That's great that this is actually from your childhood, though! Most of my toys from my childhood are long gone.

Do you have the missile for the launcher? That'd be pretty cool...

Oh, and you mentioned that the arms are articulated. Does that mean that they don't swing as the robot walks? Usually on tin walkers, if anything, only the head turns. The arms and legs are geared to move in sync when wound up.

Cool, I've seen this one a few times as well, but never bothered to grab one. I actually prefer these old school Gundam toys to the newer models and such out these days, too. Which reminds me, I've got a junior machinder around here I've been meaning to review forever..... Thanks for contributing!

Attic Treasure

@ Sanjeev:
Yes, the hands move because of knob wind up backwards (Spring mechanism) and kind a "rotating" the arms. My Missile is gone, but I will keep looking for it. Maybe it just pop up, We'll never know, eh... Talking about pop up, This toy had been in my attic for years, I guess old school toys are made to survive the time...
Yes, I kind of "feed up" with these sleek Gundams, maybe I'm just a little bored.
Blocky Robots Rules!!!

Thanks for the comments
