Up for sale is a vintage 1950s IRWIN Plastic Mechanical Shooting MAN From MARS Wind-Up Action Space Toy. The figure measures 9 1/2 tall.
It works perfectly and moves forward from side to side with the arms alternately going up and down. It is in Excellent condition especially considering its age. It comes with the original 2 piece clear plastic helmet.
The only thing that is missing is the antenna that goes on the top of the helmet. The helmet comes in 2 halves and attaches in front of and behind the man's neck. The antenna looks like it would snap in the top and help to hold the halves together. If you wanted to display it you could put a piece of clear plastic tape over part of the seam to hold it together. The box is totally intact with all the flaps still present though it does have a few indents on it.
I feel it would be difficult to find one of these in this shape these days especially with the original box. It's a really nice 1950s space related toy.
