JAPAN circa 1955
a small time Japanese toymaker.Little else is known of SNK, and it's position
"SNK is best remembered for it's line of blocky,primitive looking silver robots with entertaining names!
is not another name for Sankei-it stands for Shin Nichi Kogyo. (Kogyo is japanese
for Industry). Sankei's full name is Sankei Kogyo. Obviously they collaberated
on the Sparkling Mike/Sankei television and Robot 5-but until concrete evidence
shows up-I do not believe that they are one and the same".
Thanks to Steve,for the valuable information.
Jim is a battery operated gem,controlled by a simple remote contol,which features
forward walking motion and illuminated eyes,differs from its other brothers
of the SNK family(Sparkling Mike,Robbie Roving Robot) in terms of operation
