I met with Mario today at the Dedham Collectable and Toy show. He had brought with him some items from his collection, and it felt as if a circle had been completed by finally getting to meet and talk with him for the first time. Our collective appreciation of all things Gaiking paved the way for a fun conversation.

This robot is such a nice guy. Nearly everybody likes him. But why?
Because he’s a bit fatty, has a very long nose and is blue?
Well maybe its a combination of everything. So what…I like him too.
This one here is the ca. 6,6” (17 cm) Missile Firing Sofubi from Nakajima.
I call him “small MFV” because there also is the big MFV-Talker.
Let’s start with the Box. Not so spectacular from the front, but specially
the back is very nice illustrated.
Mr.Fraser “rediscover” the good old animated Gif…so I MUST HAVE one here too ;-)
Sorry, the Gif is ca.500 kb big…but quality needs a frew kb’s.
Pegas comes with 3 missiles, a few cardboard targets and little vinyl “friend”.
Sorry I’m a cretin…is this little “friend” really friend.? What’s his name?
Please tell me the whole story in the BBS.
Here’s Mr.Pegas. Isn’t he cute…
Some close-up’s of his missile launchers.
BANG, BAAAANG…Gansta Pegas.
That’s it for today. More stuff as usual in the BBS.
Don’t forget to tell my how the name of his little alien friend is.

So after years of debating and hemming and hawing I broke the ice and snagged a replica of Dekard’s gun from Blade Runner (yes I know I’m a terrible nerd for not getting one sooner, please forgive). figured I’d share it along with the rest of my arsenal. At least I’ll have everything covered if ever attacked, be it from a Mazone, Gamillon, Replicant, Machine Man etc…. ;-)

It’s that time again.
Josh got word from his parents that two boxes showed up at their house, so we headed out to see what new goodies we got. Per usual, I am tearing open bubble wrap and making small squeaking noises while Josh meticulously unwraps every piece and inspects every corner of every box.
