Currently on its way from the motherland, comes the Bullmark/Angel Kaman Rider V1 zenmai. Brog to follow soon!
There is something about KR in tin that induces a lust that only a few other toys can match. Not least of which is the phenomenal box art that houses it. Tin and tatami is a sweet combination which sparks a similar feeling to seeing a 1969 Toyota GT 2000…it bleeds retro class, and does so elegantly.

1977 rules baby! Grendizer (the tail end of the series, thank you Duban) for starters, which Gingaizer no doubt Nippon Animation’s answer to.. What is there to say about a standard sized vinyl? Two points of articulation and an AWESOME backer and header card! A very rare sight indeed. It pisses me that these are not more of these standard guys available. I have a very hard time believing that they were / are popular as the show sucked ass so bad….
The other two standard sofubi continue to elude me for now, but I will hopefully finish the trifecta of Granfighter, Spinlancer and Bullgator soon.
Reigning Looney in partnership with Fewture have released some modern representations here, but have yet to deliver.
Head over to the BBS and discuss HERE!

I figured a thread about talking vinyl was overdue, I’ll start it off with a not-so-perfect but still respectable Space Knight Tekkaman via Nakajima. Enjoy!
