    Description

    Marx Rare Big Loo Giant Moon Robot in the Original Box.
    Big Loo was advertised as "Your Friend From the Moon". This large plastic robot stands an impressive 37" high and in his heyday was able to shoot four "moon spheres" from his hand, bend from his waist and use his other claw hand to pick up objects, emitted various sounds and lights, shot a "space rocket", was able to send Morse code, talk, and emitted a "water ray". Big Loo was introduced by Marx in the holiday season of 1963 and the company reportedly produced 5,000 examples. Seldom is "Big Loo" seen on the collector market, and more remarkable still is it to find him in the original box. Our lovable robot even retains his original instruction pamphlet.
    Condition: Some fading to plastic, "talking" crank handle broken, missing all of the loose accessory pieces, i.e. "moon spheres", water ray, foot rocket, moon grenade, etc. None of the battery operated components have been tested. Still, in very good condition and capable of being restored and made complete. The original box, for its size is in remarkable condition with only moderate soiling and a few creases here and there.
