Wow...what a greenhouse on that one. Looks fantastic from every angle but that front shot. That's a face only a mother could love.

 

In any case, thanks for posting it...I've never seen that one before.

I've seen toys of this one back in the 70's. Always thought it was simply some really bad Japanese toy designers fantasy.
