This listing is for a. Vintage Inspector Gadget Doll from 1983 by Bandai. Based on the original 80's cartoon. No box, but has the original styrofoam packing.
This figure is parts complete, meaning he is missing nothing as far as parts and accessories are concerned. Figure does have some cosmetic wear here and there, which I will address his condition below. First off, he is smoke free. Arms and legs springs all work as they should. Right hand shoots like it should.Very bottom (or base) of his neck has a crack, as shown in close up pick. This makes his neck spring very finicky. His head does stay down, but you have to maneuver his neck in a way that it catches the spring and get it to hold just right, due to the crack most likely interfering with the mechanism inside his chest. His head will fire up, but I would not recommend messing with it too much, due to the likely hood of causing more damage, as this is the exact reason why it cracked in the first place , during the testing phase. This is a very strong spring, with most likely plastic that is not as strong as it once was years ago.
His arms joints are super tight. I did not mess with them too much, as I did not want to put anything under stress.
Both feet are sort of loose with regard to turning/ rotating. This is mostly impart due to them being attached to a spring, rather than a true joint like his arms.
The arm attachment for his head has both a decent joint and a loose joint, but it is still pose-able. The metal finish on his arm attachment for his head , the handcuff chain , and the helicopter handles all have a degree of wear, ie some surface rust that was mostly removed, thus leaving a dull finish, and/or other wear. The chrome finish on his handcuffs has come off, as shown. His coat has some fading and discoloring, but is all there.
There two snaps on the front that still snap together allowing his coat to stay closed. The velcro for his coat belt/buckle is still intact. The finish to his buckle has come off. The overall paint or plastic finish on the actual figure is stiff pretty good.
Little paint wear throughout on this figure. A touch of wear on the black hair portion behind his head. And some wear on his inner feet.
The styrofoam has marks, some discoloring and additional wear, but is fully intact. With everything said, this is still a pretty hard figure to come by in any condition or with any accessories. If you have any questions or need additional photos, please just ask. If a return is desired, please contact me ahead of time.
