Thunder Robot is a classic tin plate toy robot originally made by Asakusa in the 1950s (1957 to be exact). Mine is a modern, but faithful, Chinese reproduction from Ha Ha Toys. The ‘Thunder Robot’ is a favourite amongst toy robot collectors, and rightly so, it looks awesome! This reproduction tin toy is in a brown / grey finish with green eyes and red hands and feet. Unfortunately he is in need of major repair! His hands don’t light up nor does he make a machine gun ra-ta-ta sound properly. 🙁
But that didn’t stop me making an awesome video of it!!
Maybe one day soon I’ll be brave and open him up to try and fix him. If I do, you can be sure I’ll share the journey on my channel. Any advise from experienced robot repairers welcome. 🙂
