lavender robot:This legendary member of the gang of five is the most beautifull lithographed robot ever made in the golden age. The Litho is outstanding.
Build by Modern Toys in 1959 in Japan, this pretty big robot is an icon for this timeperiod. Called by some enthousiastics: "lady robot" because of the pink / purple color. Masudaya ( modern toys ) created 5 of these skirted robots: lavender, target, train, radicon and machine robot. Lavender is originally called: non-stop robot for example, but everybody knows this bot better as "Lavender". When switched on with the special on-off switch on the front, the robot starts to move around with mystery bump&go action, flashing lights in the head, mouth and ears and swinging arms. The arms have special " claws" that can actually grap and hold objects.
