ASTO-ROBOT - GAKKEN - JAPAN

This is a very unusual robot. Blue plastic battery operated robot with dial details. It has a white head with red features. Red plastic cylinders on the back hold the batteries. The robot has four long arced plastic legs that descend in pairs to allow the robot to move with a shuffling motions. "Blinking light on head and two razer guns". A small yellow dome in the head lights and two recessed guns in the chest fire. The entire design is unique. Gakken produced a few space toys but this is their only robot. (so far!)

A newspaper ad dates this to November 1970.
