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).
due to it's unique design,Mr Atomic brings good but not outrageous valuations
in the contemporary collector's/dealer's market.
BLUE VARIATION ,MIOB $5.100
SILVER VARIATION, MIOB $15.000(no bids, at all !)
