APOLLO 2000 - HORIKAWA FOR DURHAM - JAPAN

Blue and red tin battery op Attacking Martian based on Rotate-O-Matic body. Silver fly eyes, guns behind doors in chest. The box does not carry the SH logo.


There are two versions of the Apollo 2000:
The first one was made for Tarheel Industries. It has all tin doors, a green switch and deep doors - ones with a pronounced ridge.

The second version was made for Durham Industries. It has a red switch, and litho metal doors on plastic.

As these robots have no SH logo they probably don’t appear in Horikawa catalogs.

Apollo 2000 has already been dated to 1969 in a Western Auto Christmas catalog. The Super Robot version with red eyes and more litho detailing on the doors has been sighted in 1972.
