Metal House – Star Ranger (スターレインジャー) – Side
Star Ranger Robot by Metal House in Japan. 12 inches tall. Eight lighted pistons inside the chest bounce up and down fast with side to side head motion plus swaying arms while walking. Due to the piston gimmick there is no room for bigger D size or even C size batteries for power source but two AA batteries only. For adult collectors it won’t be a problem for once or twice for test run will probably be all for entire life of the robot – bit sad - but for real kids this means no enduring power to play longer and frequent battery changes.
