Good overall cosmetic condition. Mild scratching across the body with some light loss to the original paint. Very light scratching to the controller box. Controller needs to be re-wired to the robot. I was able to test it with the available wiring, motor kicked on and robot walked; Right eye lit up, left eye did not; radar dish light flashed. Evidence shows the back side of the toy has been opened/reclosed; likely by someone trying to inspect wiring. The original box shows some moderate creasing and light staining, and has heavy tape repair on the top edges.
