Flying Astro Boy © NTV, 1981

Other than the Hot Toys version released in 2005, this flying "Astro Boy/Tetsuwan Atomu" was released way back in 1981

You're supposed to put batteries into his back, hook him up to the ceiling, activate a switch (located on his left hip) and watch him fly around in circles. But because he's made of hard plastic (i.e. the brittle kind), can you imagine the impact he's going to make should he really take off from his perch in the ceiling?! "No way José"
