Maker: Yonezawa

JAPAN circa 1962

Mr Atomic is an eccentric design.

It's cone-shaped tin body with the little plastic arms and tapping feet,are unique!

There is noticeably no neck or a usual head.Instead it boasts a plastic clear dome and head colored lights,giving you the illusion of a futuristic computerobot!

It has a bump-n-go action with either a clicking noise (silver version) or a whistling sound (blue version).

Perhaps due to it's unique design,Mr Atomic brings good but not outrageous valuations in the contemporary collector's/dealer's market.



SILVER VARIATION, MIOB $15.000(no bids, at all !)
