Nomura Robots

By | August 1, 2013

The company Nomura, similar to many other Japanese manufacturers, began in the tin toy industry in the late 1940's after World War II to help reconstruct the economy. Nomura is famous for their tin robot toys such as Tetsujin 28 aka Iron Man and Astro Boy. In addition, coming off the success of the movie Forbidden Planet, Robby the Robot became a popular toy robot. These productions of battery operated walking tin robots help establish Nomura as hugely popular for its toys during the 1950s and and 1960s. In the early 1970s, the company adopted diecast metal for the production of their toys after Popy had success with their line of die cast toys. During this time, the company acquired the license to produce the Yamato toyline based on the popular animation series in Japan, Farewell to Yamato, which is related to the animation series called Star Blazers in the United States. Today, many toy collectors find nostalgic Nomura's toyline as an attractive investment for their collection.
