Titan Space Dober T551 was sold in a
similarly design box as Titan Space Knight T53X.
This particular Space Dober actually
came from one of stores here in the US that imported Japanese toys
during the late 70's early 80's. Note the old price tag of $8.50,
thought cheap by today standard, Space Dober was pretty expensive toy,
at the time when most action-figures usually sell for around $2.00-3.00.
Space Dober came with several
Magnemo-8 ball joint accessories that turn the magnetic rover into a
tri-cycle for Microman figure.
Space Dober was repaint of the old
1975 Titan Dober Machines. According to the catalog story Space
Dober was rebuild from a damaged Titan Dober Machine. (See also 1975
Titan Dober Machines T42X)
Takara also included colorful
instruction sheet and a sticker sheet.
Takara released repaint version
of Titan Dober Machine T42X from 1975 as Titan Space Dober T55X.
Unlike the old Dober, Space Dober only had one member T551 Black Space
Dober. (Takara also released repaint version of T41X Magne
Condor as T541 Space Condor)
T551 Space Dober
Space Dober was exactly the same
toy as T42X Dober Machine but with new color scheme. The new Titan
Dober now had solid black color body with gold plated accessories that turn
the pooch into a golden tri-cycle.
Space Dober (Bike Mode)
Titan Space Knight Series would be the last
Microman Titan and possibly one of the very last magnemo-8 series toys
released by Takara. The Space Dober had the distinction of being the
last Titan member and having highest designation number (551) of all
Microman Titan figures.
