Tetsujin No2(OTTI version)
A strange looking version of Tetsujin,has many similarities with Mechanized Robby.
(barrel shaped body,batteries inside legs)
This is a keywind version,with lithographed tinplate finished in electric blue,yellow,orange and green,walks forward,arms move up and down-via a moving key and sparks flare through the red gel jetpacks on his back.Beautiful to watch...particularly the detailing on the feet.
T-28 Tetsujin was also made by Billiken in the 1990's, and they gave him a black glossy color,moving arms and legs and a plain/simple lithography.
This is No4 ,the rarest version of all,remote controlled,simple lithographics,lovely silver finish with green,yellow and red colors,and thinner well designed legs and feet..
