My parents really like Boss Palder.
They dont had a clue who Boss Palder was,
till they got a painting of him as
a x-mas gift from me. Now Boss Palder
is part of their lives, hanging in the
their living room since ’95.
I made a little “gathering”.
Painting meets robot.
My painting was heavy inspired by the
Astro Robot Box Artwork…ok, a copy of it. ;-)
Well, the Astro Boxes dont look very spectacular,
but I always like the little portraits of the
Blocker’s on the side panels.
I became intrigued with Big Scale Pla Bases upon seeing the small photo of the Thunderbirds base in the Popy Datafiles. I made it my mission to create my own ‘datafile’ with pics of these things, since there was no other info on them that I could find. I didn’t see any on ebay, but once I discovered YHJ they came rolling in.
My first discovery was a Getter base.
It was loose and cracked, so I naiively thought I could grab it for a couple of hundred. WRONG! Damn thing went for over a grand.
I had seen several Getter G bases after that, mostly loose, and then this showed up.
Saw it within an hour of listing. It was a BIN so I probably paid too much, but no regrets as I have yet to see a better boxed version come up, and is the only four figure toy in my stable.
For just over a year now I’ve been gathering photo’s of these things and discovered big bases from the likes of Bullmark, Takemi, and Takatoku. Some are rarer (and much more expensive) than others, but all are cool looking.
If Pla bases are your thing or want to know what accessories came with them (where possible to this point), come on by to my photo album for more pics. I think I have the Popy ones covered with the exception of Combattra and Raideen Bases.
Oh, and if anyone has other, or more complete pics of these things, please shoot em over, as I’m constantly updating this. Thx.
OK. So I’m at long last following up on my previous post from April. Been there done that. No pics inside. Almost got my ass kicked. Overpriced as hell. No love for me.. Regardless, it’s a cool looking shop with BIG stuff like store displays and the like. They actually have a Diapolon store display in there, but they threatened my life if I took a pic of it.. Ba humbug..
