ASC Tremendous Mike was made in the late fifties by ASC in Japan… made in 2 variations, grey and orange. Made out of tin with a clockwork mechanism that provides forward action and a mechanism that changes the direction, sparks and rotating antenna on top of the robots head. Very Scarce Tremendous Mike Robot made by Aoshin (Japan) in the 1950's. This is an example of an iconic vintage Keywind mechanism. Painted tinplate finished in silver, red and blue. Works . In operation this early skirted style robot travels forward, arms swing at sides, antenna on head rotates, and sparks are emitted behind red gel in chest. It then turns and continues on.Height is 11 inches. i love his face and his grimming smile tremendous mike is difficult to find in any condition this one has some wear and scratches . it works ,antenna turns .the antenna is a professional replica i had once an orange with a original antenna never saw the difference ; with this one; in general they always miss the antenna .a must in any robot collection
