Product Description

Working Masudaya SONIC ROBOT Train Gang of Five Tin Toy

Presenting a vintage robot toy Giant Sonic Robot with a reproduction box.  Considered to be one of the “holy grails” of robot collecting, this is the ultra-scarce Modern Toys/Masudaya tin Giant Sonic Robot (aka “Train” robot), manufactured in Japan in the late 1950s and very early 1960s. It is believed to be the last member of the so-called “Gang of Five,” a set of skirted battery-op robots that included Sonic, along with Radicon, Target, Non-Stop andMachine Man. These robots command the top spots in the pantheon of robot collecting, and prices as high as $42,500 have been paid for them individually at auction in recent years.

The robot stands an impressive 15 inches high, and is complete and all-original. There are a few light scratches. The battery compartment is clean.  The colors are vibrant. All of the lenses are original, as well as the wheels.

I put in three size D batteries and the toy powered right up and moved around.
This robot is absolutely guaranteed, without reservation, to be 100% authentic and vintage in every way. Furthermore, we guarantee that it is all original and that this description is accurate.

Measurements: 6 1/4″ long, 15 3/8″ high, 8″ wide.
