This toy was ahead of him time. Made in Japan by Trade Mark these are very few and hard to find. I know of one other in the Tin Toy Museum in Japan.He has a few spots where someone tried to touch up the paint. I wish people would not do that. This another toy I was going to send to Randys to just clean up a little. His helmet with rocket boosters was a creative sign of the future. There are no dents on his helmet or any wear else what you see are the lights reflecting like a white spot.
Toy has light surface scratches. Someone tried to touch up paint in a few small spots. Zoom in on photos for a detailed look at the condition. Wind him up and his head turns right to left as he clicks and walks forward. Super cool toy to have.He would not be easy to find or even possible to replace at this time so please make a descent offer. I did some more research on him please continue reading. Dont let this one getaway you can be the next proud owner of this toy. The arms and legs will move when it is wind-up. The head will also move right and left and a clicking sound is produced. It is made of lithograph tin.

Astro Boy Japanese: Hepburn: Tetsuwan Atomu, "Mighty Atom", lit. "Iron Arm Atom" is a Japanese television series that premiered on Fuji TV on New Year's Day and is the first popular animated Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became familiar worldwide as anime.  It originated as a manga of the same name in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, revered in Japan as the God of Manga.  After enjoying success both in Japan and abroad as the first anime to be broadcast overseas, Astro Boy was remade in the 1980s under the same name(s), and in 2003 as Astro Boy: Mighty Atom.
It lasted for four seasons, with a total of 193 episodes, the final episode presented on New Year's Eve 1966. At its height it was watched by 40% of the Japanese population who had access to a TV. In 1964, there was a feature-length animated movie called Mighty Atom, the Brave in Space (Tetsuwan Atomu: Uch no ysha) released in Japan. It was an anthology of three episodes; The Robot Spaceship, Last Day on Earth and Earth Defense Squadron. The latter two were filmed in color.
