Yoshiya KO Planet Robot 2 later versions
Made in Japan by KO Yoshiya, based on Robby the Mechanized Robot from the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. Many different versions exist of the Action Planet Sparking Robot, ranging from a remote control battery operated one with spinning antenna, to the many clockwork wind up types available in black, blue, olive green and a maroon special crinkle finish paint . Pictured are two later versions from late 1960s to early 1970s, the one on the right is believed to be the last with plastic head and hands, the box has the 1971 ST Safety Toy mark and came with the plastic head version. The one on left precedes it as it has a tin head and larger face grille. Also notice the different legs widths. Beware of recent reproductions which all have tin claw hands
