I remember when this was

I remember when this was found. I wanted one SO bad but I know I cannot compete with the deep pockets of Jumbo Collectors. I have to wait until the fifth, or sixth specimen to show up, and only then will I have a shot. Once the Italians, Chinese and a select few Americans get theirs, I may be able to get mine.

Unfortunately, due to the rarity of this that time may never come.

Truthfully, in cases like

Truthfully, in cases like this, it's not always about the money. I'm sure you've probably paid more for new release gokin than I paid for this. Iirc, the actual sale price of this was about $125 (plus the double shipping and middle man fees). The real trick is finding it without a very public bidding war. Hard to do, but obviously possible.

Dave, Well worth the wait as

Well worth the wait as yours has a box, I wouldn't be surprised if its the only box in existence.

I know you'll get one eventually. If I find one I will be happy to sell it to only you!

Nice article and great to finally see some nice close up pictures of one.

Actually, so far both

Actually, so far both specimens I've actually seen of this have their boxes, much to my surprise. I fully expected to have to "settle" for a loose one if I ever found it, so getting it boxed was a pleasant surprise.

Italians doesn't have this one, by the way :)

But I would really like to add it to my little collection of foreign Jumbos....If someone could help me, please send me a private message ;-)

I have one...

Hi, guys.

I was looking for some kind of reference on the internet about this toy. It was the only toy I kept of all. Unfortunally, I didn´t find anything about it here, in Brasil.

Good to see that people of other countries know about it. It was my greatest toy of all. It´s in a very good condition, including the box.

I have no idea of how much this worth. The company Rosita is still running, but no longer produces this kind of toy.

Anyway, see the pictures make me call my mother to see if my Argus is still kept and well after all those years... :)

I'm from Brazil and I had one of those growing up

Dear friends,

I live in Brazil and I've been lucky enough to own one of those Argus robots back in the day (either the late 70's or the early 80's). It was huge and very funny to play! Unfortunately, it was gone ages ago. :-(

I'm pretty sure I have a picture of my Argus somewhere. I'll find it and post it here!
