I guess it must have been a result of age? Cosmetically, it has a few issues as well: I guess youd call it a slight crack or chip in the plastic chest piece above the gun. Also, there is a slight dent in the battery compartment door in the back.I tried to take photos to clearly show those defects. And, of course the broken on/off switch (which I will still send along).
Overall Ive always felt this looked to be an outstanding-looking example of one of my favorite robots! Paint job looks pretty darn good all over. The chrome and metal pieces look really good as well. Not a lot if any rust to be found.The battery compartment is also really clean. The dome on top as well is free from cracks. As I mentioned before, I DID have this running and it worked well.
Just a really fun piece. Such a great design I loved to look at it when it was just standing there! PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO BOX. I do not want to go down this road again. THERE IS A BROKEN ON AND OFF SWITCH.
