QUOTE(robot polishing his rocket @ Jul 30 2004, 05:48 AM)
this is an even rarer version of the original box, with the misspelling of the word “complete”, spelt as “conplete”.

Another tid-bit of information I was not aware of.
Thanks, RPHR!

And, congratulations! A VERY nice piece!!

A question...
Is the large left hand meter attached differently to the white chest plate than on later versions? I don't see the more familiar eyelet heads.

RPHR-

Fantastic! I'm happy to have been of some service, and it's nice to see the Radicon go to a "family member". wink.gif I've seen your collection (museum) and I think that this museum piece has found a good home. I do not know how you survived waiting for two months for delivery though!

What a great pick up, RPHR! It looks great, and that box is wonderful (beat-ups notwithstanding). Definitely a nice jewel to add to your crown of a collection.

thanks guys, very kind of you all.

joe-

the lens that covers the meter has slipped. minor issue, nothing broken, and one that should be no problem to fix, given that the radicon, as with all the gang, has screws to put him together. so there's little danger of snapping tabs.

still, given the relative ease of opening him, i'm still in two minds whether to do it or not? i guess i can live with it for now. i'll wait and see.
