Chime Trooper is a lovable,highly desirable toy..
It sports a strong keywind mechanism ,great lithographed tin plate finished in silver-blue,red,yellow,white ans silver glossy colors..
During operation the astronaut moves forward while emitting a plinking melody,it then strangely turns and continues on,with it's arms swinging at side..
Chime Trooper's skirted body is very similar to Tremendous Mike's.
The box features some amazing artwork with Chime Trooper strolling around a Martian field, while his space rocket is getting ready, for the next trip to the floating space station....
