Takara: Tetsuwan Atom DX

Filed under: Co. TAKARA,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 7:45 pm

Takara Tetsuwan Atom Mechablock DX

This is really a deluxe toy. You get a Plastic Atom Boy with a diecast endo-skeleton
in a beautiful box. Lots of  fantastic features. I’m totally flashed by this toy!
You all know this toy, but I thought it is time for some extra love…

Had to buy 2 to get one perfect specimen.  I don’t regret it, because now I could display one
and play with the other ;-)

Dismantle Atom Boy in order to put the endo-skeleton inside his body.
Some of the skeleton parts (arms, tank tracks) are made out of heavy diecast.

You could assemble the skeleton parts to a robot etc…Ark-style-play-feature.

Now you know where the guys from Pixar got the idea for the design of WALL•E.
A few detail shot of the endo-skeleton parts.

The greatest detail of Atom is his “chest part” with the moving gears under
a window. You really could “move ” these gears with one of the 2 “screwdrivers”.
Atom Box also comes with a very nice illustrated instruction sheet and a few stickers.

Thats it for today. More pictures in the BBS.

Nakajima: Ready to Rumble

Filed under: Co. NAKAJIMA,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 11:28 am

Bought my first Nakajima Tiger Mask Standard Size Vinyls:
Great Zebra & Mr Question

I always had an eye on these crazy looking Wrestlng guys,
but didn’t dare to start collecting them. I know why!
These japanese Luchas are pure funk and you want them all ;-)

After cleaning them with all kinds of plasic & car paint cleaners
they look very good again. I also tried a Ultra sonic Cleaner
the first time for cleaning the face, boots, hands etc.
Worked very good! Only water with a bit soap, leaving
them a few minutes in the Ultra Sonic Bath and the dirt has
gone without destroying the paint.

I already won a few other of these psychadelic wrestling guys Yahoo.
The good thing is that they pop up quiet often. Only getting them
complete with all “accessories” (sash, cape, boots etc) is a bit tricky
and pushes up the price for them. The Tiger Mask Bug bite me !

More stuff etc in the BBS.

cheers all

Planet Robo Danguard Ace (惑星ロボ ダンガードA(エース) Wakusei Robo Dangādo Ēsu)

I’m going through the sea of crap I have in cases and slowly storing stuff in an effort to make space. Thought I would take a quick minute to bust out a few pics of these guys together. At some point I’ll need to take out my chogokin and popynica and take a massive group shot. Enjoy!

The Collection or Warren Schwartz part 2

Filed under: Declarations,Josh Fraser,Regan Miller,Toy News,Warren Schwartz — Josh Fraser @ 11:32 pm

It was a good day.

Regan and I went to have lunch, and spend some quality time with Warren and to see a few of the recent, and remarkable finds he has picked up in the past few months.

You may recall the “infamous” article Matt and Alen reported on Warren all those years ago, on May 5th 2002.

I consider this part two.

Zollmen Mad Baron: Ganbaron tribute

Filed under: Erik Sjoen — erik sjoen @ 5:28 pm

img_1456

Yet another Mad Baron, and this one’s a tribute to Ganbaron the pilot of one of my all time favorite super robots Daibaron (big baron) . I have to say, this Zollmen guy really gets it as far as I’m concerned. Meka Goji head under his dome, Jumbo Machinder XX arm attachment (another fav of mine), Ultraman building?, missile firing pins sculpted into the arms, homage to Mach / Red Baron and last but not least the quintessential metallic silver katakana waist belt with BOLD lettering. Love it ALL. Took me a bit to warm up to this guys work, but I have to say we have very similar taste. See gallery for more pics.

Ganbaron (小さなスーパーマン ガンバロン Chīsana Sūpāman Ganbaron?) was a 1977 Japanese tokusatsu live action television show featuring Japan’s own version of American superhero Superman.

When I look at this picture all I can hear is Ian MacKaye chanting:

BIG thanks to Uncle Warren for the MB talker!! UW is hands down the kindest, coolest and most generous person I know in this hobby.. He’s made many of my dreams into reality. I can’t thank him enough! Oh, and thanks to JF who sold UW his MIB MB talker. Enough acronyms/abbreviations for ya?
