V-2 Robot

Do I look familiar ?

My cousin is the actor !
Robot V-2, GIG (nel paese delle meraviglie)
Taiwan (made for Italian market), 1970's

This one, due to obvious reasons, is kind of a copycat of the Astromech droid R2-D2 in Star Wars. Very heavy radio controlled toy, it will 8 batteries of 3 different sizes to make it work (not kidding) and the remote looks more like a little box from a James Bond villain (to blow up the world or somehing else evilish) than anything else.

A perfect end of 70ies flavour kind of toy !
