THIS "DOZO" WAS/IS DISTRIBUTED BY ROSKO (HEREAFTER SIMPLY REFERRED TO AS "CLOWN") AND IS ROSKO ITEM NUMBER: 083. THIS CLOWN WAS/IS MADE BY. ONCE BASED OUT OF TOKYO, JAPAN. LUIOB = L IGHTLY U SED I N O RIGINAL B OX. THIS HAD BEEN STASHED AWAY WITH A FEW HUNDRED OR SO ADDITIONAL MODELS ALL OF WHICH I HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED FOR UP TO 5 DECADES!

9 5 % OF THESE ARE ONE-OF-A-KINDS LISTINGS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW YOU AN ARRAY OF PICTURES AND DESCRIBE THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. THIS RARE CLOWN IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE! THIS MODEL MEASURES OUT AT CLOSE TO 13 1/4 INCHES TALL (34 CM).

IT IS IN EXCELLENT OVERALL WORKING CONDITION AND ALL OF THE ORIGINAL FEATURES STILL WORK AS DESIGNED AND DESCRIBED ON THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING/BOX. ALL OF THESE VINTAGE "SMOKING" NOVELTIES HAVE THE TENDENCY TO SMOKE LESS OVER THE DECADES.

THIS PARTICULAR CLOWN DOES SMOKE BUT THE SMOKE IS WHITE AND THIN. HERE'S HOW IT WORKS....

AS WITH ALL BATTERY OPERATED MODELS, THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS TO INSTALL THE BATTERIES! THIS CLOWN TAKES TWO (2) SIZE "D" BATTERIES WHICH ARE INSTALLED VIA THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT WHICH IS LOCATED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF HIS FEET (BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED). ONCE YOU'VE INSTALL THESE BATTERIES, YOU THEN CLOSE AND LOCK DOWN THE BATTERY COVER.

NOW PLACE IT DOWN ON A HARD SURFACE (NONE OF THESE VINTAGE MODELS WERE DESIGNED WITH CARPETS IN MIND) AND WATCH ALL OF THE ACTION! HERE YOU HAVE A POWER SWITCH WHICH IS LOCATED ON THE TIP OF HIS LEFT FOOT (YELLOW BUTTON). NEXT YOU DEPRESS THE YELLOW BUTTON FOR A FULL SECON UNTIL DOZO BEGINS TO MOVE. ONCE HE MOVES, YOU RELEASE THE BUTTON. DOZO'S FIRST ACTION WOULD BE THE ROTATION OF HIS EYES AND YOU INSTANTLY MOVE INTO THE SWEEPING MODE.

HERE SMOKE IS SUPPOSED TO EMIT FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE BROOM. HOWEVER, THE SMOKER / BURNER IS LOCATED IN DOZO'S CHEST. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH PRESSURE TO MOVE THE SMOKE FROM HIS CHEST TO THE END OF THE BROOM.

THIS DESIGN FLAW IS, UNFORTUNATELY, COMMON AMONGST ALL DOZO THE STEAMING CLOWN UNITS. AFTER MULTIPLE USES AND IF YOU PLANT YOUR HEAD SIX INCHES FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE BROOM YOU CAN SEE AND SMELL A LIGHT HINT OF SMOKE. DOZO WILL CONTINUE TO SWEEP AND YOU WILL HEAR SOME INTERNAL CLICKING. THIS IS COMMON AND IS DIRECTING THE FLOW OF SMOKE.

NEXT, DOZO WILL CONTINUE TO SWEEP AND YOU WILL HEAR THE FIRST CLICKING SOUND. NOW DOZO WILL RESUME HIS SWEEPING AND A SLIGHT BURST OF SMOKE WILL RISE FROM THE TOP OF HIS HEAD THROUGH HIS CRACKED/TORN HAT. DOZO WILL CONTINUE TO SWEEP AND WILL NOW BEND TO HIS RIGHT EXPOSING HIS REAR END. AS HE REACHES THE CREST OF HIS BENDING, SMOKE WILL EMIT FROM THE SMALL GROMMET LOCATED ON HIS REAR.

NEXT, YOU WILL NOTICE THAT DOZO BLUSHES AS A LIGHT WILL EMIT FROM HIS FACE. HE THEN STANDS UPRIGHT, ROLLS HIS EYES, AND RESETS FOR THE NEXT CYCLE.

HE WILL AUTOMATICALLY POWER OFF AT THIS POINT. THIS IS A GREAT TOY TO WATCH IN ACTION, IT DOES NOT MOVE AWAY FROM YOU LIKE A VEHICLE AND IS STATIONARY. THE DETAIL ON THE CLOWN IS GREAT!! THE TIN LITHOGRAPHY ON THE BASE IS WITHOUT ANY RUST, CORROSION, DINGS, OR DENTS. ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE BASE/FEET IS THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT.

THIS TAKES TWO (2) SIZE "D" BATTERIES AS NOTED ABOVE (ONCE AGAIN, THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED). THE BATTERY COMPARTMENTS DOOR AND LOCKING LEVER (TAB) ARE ALSO MADE OUT OF PLASTIC. NO ISSUES EXIST ON EITHER SIDE OF THE BATTERY COMPARTMENTS COVER. THE BATTERY CONTACTS ARE REALLY CLEAN AND ALSO ORIGINAL TO THIS CLOWN.

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL, VINTAGE, BATTERY OPERATED MODEL/ITEM AND NOT A REPRODUCTION THEREOF! IT'S OLD AND IT'S USED.... BUT, NEVER HAS IT BEEN ABUSED!

AS A COLLECTOR, ONE MUST ASSUME THAT SOME LITTLE QUARKS MIGHT ARISE ON CERTAIN MODELS AND ARE CONSIDERED IN FACT, "NORMAL" AND SOMETIMES EVEN EXPECTED! YOU HAVE NO SUCH ISSUES WITH THIS CLOWN. BUT, THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT WILL WORK PERFECTLY RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX..... EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE, THAT DOES NOT MEAN ONE WILL NOT ARISE! THEN HE COMPLAINS LIKE A TODDLER WHO HAS HIS PACIFIER WITHIN SIGHT, BUT SLIGHTLY OUT OF REACH!

HAVING MY DAD AS A CO-OWNER OF A TOY DISTRIBUTOR IN NYC FOR CLOSE TO A HALF OF A CENTURY DOES NOT MAKE ME AN EXPERT, HOWEVER HAVING THOUSAND OF UNIQUE TOYS BROUGHT HOME OVER THE YEARS WITH TOTAL AND COMPLETE ACCESS TO THEM (SOME OF WHICH YOU SEE LISTED HERE) SORT OF GIVES ME AN EDGE OVER THESE ROCKET SCIENTISTS! WITH THIS BEING SAID, I WILL TRY TO INFORM YOU OF WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WILL BE RECEIVING FROM ME.

I DO ASK THAT YOU TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT MY PICTURES AS THESE DO A MUCH BETTER JOB OF SHOWING YOU EXACTLY WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WILL BE RECEIVING FROM ME VS. I HAVE NOT EVEN REACHED 30% OF WHAT I HAVE IN HOUSE TO LIST AND I HAVE DUPLICATES OF MANY ITEMS, SOME LISTED AT THIS TIME AND MANY NOT YET LISTED. THE ORIGINAL BOX IS PRESENT AND IS IN GOOD OVERALL SHAPE. YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL SIXTEEN (16) STAPLES HOLDING THE BASE AND LID FIRMLY TOGETHER. YOU HAVE NO ADDED GLUE FOUND ANYWHERE ON THE BASE OR LID.

YOU DO HAVE A SLIGHT DEPRESSION ON THE LID AND THIS IS BECAUSE AT ONE TIME, I HAD THIS BOX IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF MY TOY TOWERS! AS SUCH, THE LID DID SUFFER FROM THIS PRESSURE AND HAS SUSTAINED SOME DAMAGE. THE GRAPHICS POP REALLY NICELY AND THIS BOX DISPLAYS WELL WITH DOZO. ON ONE OF THE SMALL SIDE PANELS YOU DO HAVE SOME HANDWRITING OF THE SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE, 3.98. THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS HAVE GONE MISSING, SO PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT TO SEE THEM.

HERE I DO ASK THAT YOU LOOK AT AND INSPECT MY PICTURES AS THEY DO A FAR BETTER JOB SHOWING YOU THE ACTUAL SHAPE/CONDITION OF THIS BOX THEN I COULD EXPLAIN HERE IN WORDS. I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE. I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING THEM AND ONCE AGAIN PRIOR TO SENDING THEM OFF.

I DO THIS SO WE WILL BOTH BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY I DO THINGS! I LOVE THIS ONE, "I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS MODEL AS I HAVE NO BATTERIES OF THIS SIZE"!! AFTER ALL, HOW HARD IS IT TO TOSS IN A FEW BATTERIES OR TO WIND UP A MODEL??

PRETTY DAMN EASY IF YOU ASK ME. THIS SMOKING CLOWN IS FULLY TESTED AND WILL BE ONCE AGAIN, PRIOR TO ME PACKAGING THIS UP. THIS VINTAGE DOZO IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND OF AN ERA THAT HAS LONG PASSED US BY. A GOLD T/RATED POWERSELLER WITH OVER 8 YEARS OF THIS STATUS BACKING ME. I SPECIALIZE IN PRIMARILY THE AUTOMOTIVE FIELD AND I CONCENTRATE WITH/ON PORSCHE, BENTLEY, AUDI AND.

I HAVE A UPS ACCOUNT AND MOST OF MY OFFERINGS HERE SHALL BE SENT THAT WAY. I PACK EACH AND EVERY ITEM MYSELF AND DO SO AS IF I WERE RECEIVING IT. UNFORTUNATELY, IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD SOME RUN-INS WITH SOME VERY SCRUPULOUS INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, WHO BY THEIR NATURE "DO NOT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS".

CONSEQUENTLY, I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO USE EBAYS GSP AS THIS DOES OFFER "WE THE SELLERS" SOME ADDITIONAL PROTECTION FROM THESE FOLKS. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE READ THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS SECTION AS THIS DOES APPLY TO YOU. SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END! THIS HAS BECOME A FULL TIME BUSINESS FOR ME AND I REALLY ENJOY DOING IT. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO TILL IT BECOMES A BURDEN AND I CAN NO LONGER ENJOY IT.

I WILL BE ADDING TO THIS STORE WEEKLY (OR TRYING TO) AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL SEE THAT I DO EXACTLY WHAT I SAY AND DO SO IN A VERY TIMELY FASHION. THIS IS WHERE I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN READING ALL OF THE ABOVE. IN ORDER TO VIEW MY LISTINGS IN A CONCISE AND ORDERLY FASHION, ALL YOU NEED DO IS TO LOCATE THAT SMALL.

DOOR A TOP THIS PAGE. THIS IS LOCATED JUST BELOW MY SELLERS ID AND FEEDBACK TALLY. IN ORDER TO STREAMLINE YOUR SEARCH FURTHER, ONCE YOUR IN MY STORE, TO THE LEFT YOU WILL SEE A "SEARCH" BAR, IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE JUST MY MODEL CARS, JUST TYPE IN "MODEL CAR" AND JUST MY LISTED MODEL CARS WILL POP-UP.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE SOME LP'S... I THINK YOU GET THE GIST OF THIS NOW!

I HAVE A LIST OF CATEGORIES THAT WILL ASSIST YOU IN STREAMLINING YOUR SEARCH AS WELL. ONCE AGAIN, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATIONS ON THIS LIGHTLY USED, FULLY OPERATIONAL, NOMURA, BATTERY POWERED "DOZO THE STEAMING CLOWN" WHICH IS STILL 100% ORIGINAL AND 100% OPERATIONAL AND IN IT'S FACTORY ORIGINAL BOX WHICH IS DISTRIBUTED BY ROSKO AND FOR ANY OTHER CONSIDERATIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE GIVEN ME IN THE PAST.....
