Look Inside Vintage Toy Robots! Saturn TV Space Scenes

Ever wondered what’s inside vintage toy robots? Well I take a look at two classic television screen robot designs from the 1970s and 1980s and show you the magic. It’s not high tech, but interesting if you’re a geek like me. Featuring the Kamco Saturn Robot (rare colour version) and Horikawa Space Scout.

Rare SATURN ROBOT Giant walking robot toy

A rare vintage Saturn ROBOT in unusual blue, orange and red colours. Described on the box as a Giant 13″ walking robot with light-up eyes and rockets. It walks with swinging arms and illuminated eyes then pauses and displays the space scene projection on his huge chest panel. 4 rockets are mounted on his head and spring loaded to fire at will. This robot design is an absolute classic with many versions available – the most common colour you’ll see is black and red. I’ve also seen all yellow, all red and an orange/pink combo.
