NON FALL SPACE PATROL WITH FLOATING SATELLITE X-16 - MASUDAYA FOR AMICO - JAPAN

One of Masudaya's large bowl shaped flying saucers. Metallic blue-green tin lithographed battery op saucer with non-fall action. Circular flat colored lights are spaced around the dome. Floating styrofoam ball and flashing lights. See also the X-17 which is a bump and go variation of this saucer in essentially the same box. The wide cup is an addition that must have helped to improved the performance of the ball blowing. Cams underneath the toy detect the edges of surfaces and prevent it from going over the edge.
