Milestone’s Winter Toy Extravaganza Closes the Books at $750K, with Rare Diamond Planet Robot in the Lead

 In Auctions

WILLOUGHBY, OH – Nearly 880 lots of high quality antique and vintage toys crossed the auction block at Milestone’s December 10 Winter Toy Extravaganza, chalking up $750,000 and making many collectors’ Christmas dreams come true.

Fueled by strong international interest, four dozen robots and space toys easily achieved liftoff, with an extremely rare color variation of a Yonezawa (Japan) tin windup Diamond Planet Robot leading the group. At 10 inches high, Diamond Planet is the largest of all windup robots produced during the golden era of postwar Japanese toymaking. The 100% original robot with a blue body and red arms was offered together with a high-quality repro box and sold within estimate
for $33,210.
