Woodsy posted a pic of this weird japanese toy a while back and I liked the look of it then, so when one appeared on ebay recently, I jumped at it. As Woodsy pointed out, it has a Spacex feel to it with the orange rubber wheels and green body.
Its articulated body can be connected with jointed pipes, but due to its age and bad storage, the plastic has become brittle, so I prefer to leave them off. Even so, theres a cool Scramble Bug/Mev vibe to it.
Its been a good summer on ebay and for one ive managed to nail a couple of nice space toys, which ill pop on here shortly.
The back of the card features some wonderful 'engrish' transliterations too!
