GALAXY ROBOT (aka CONEHEAD) | Vintage Walking Tin Space Toy

GALAXY ROBOT is a vintage walking tin toy robot with a cone shaped head and light up eyes. The design is often referred to as just the CONEHEAD robot due to its very unique head shape. My version is an old-ish reproduction of the original 1967 Yonezawa toy that was simply called the ‘Mechanical Space Robot’. The original Cone Head was blue and red in colour and had simpler flat metal claw hands.

Unlike the original my ConeHead doesn’t use a wind-up mechanism. It was an electric motor powered by a wired battery box.
