Flashy Jim R7 robot by Sankei SNK
Approximately 60 years old, as of 2016 the date of the video in the YouTube link, and this image. Made in Japan circa 1956 by Sankei SNK, remote control powered by 2 x C cells, simple walking action by blades which alternately project out of the feet and which have small metal wheels at the bottom which produces the rather wobbly gait, also has lighted eyes and mouth. The same body with a few changes is used for two clockwork wind up sparking versions which are Sparkling Mike and Robbie The Roving Robot. In terms of rarity, Sparkling Mike is the less rare, followed by Flashy Jim and Robbie the Roving Robot being the rarest, all though are rare to find.
