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 Horikawa logo - it was made for distribution by Durham Industries. This robt has the "deep doors" - ones with a pronounced ridge.

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.

Later versions of this robot have increasing plastic content in components such as the doors.
