Cisco: Parachute Rockbat

Filed under: Co. BULLMARK,Stephan Halder,Stoopid,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 5:37 pm

Brog No.4 in a row. My new personal record ;-)

It’s time for my first serious Rockbat Brog this year.
I bought a very special toy last year, that I want to show you today!

Not only the toy is very special, also the way it was packed when it arrived in germany.

Well protected in finest japanese Tupperware. Nice!

My first thought when I opened the box and looked at the toy.
“Rockbat looked much bigger on the auctions fotos on yahoo!”
Second thought: “Did I really paid so much for THAT! I must be crazy!!”

No, this wasn’t an “under the radar auction”. A few other crazy idiots really wanted this little sucker.
At the end I won it and I better don’t talk about the price.

Mint in bag. No cool artwork, not painted, nothing. That’s how a holy grail should look like.

This piece really is unique in my eyes. In all the years I collect Rockbat related
toys and scan Yahoo and ebay regular, I never seen this toy before.
Most likely this toy isn’t special at all. Maybe it’s such a cheap shit that nobody
wants to list it on yahoo, because it’s impossible to sell it. Who knows…

Again I destroyd the C-10-holiness of a toy. I opened the bag and removed the staples.
Shit…what have I done! Now I have to find another mint specimen in bag.

Rockbat has a Bullmark copyright marking on his forehead and a Cisco marking
on the back of his head. I couldn’t find out anything about Cisco. If anybody has informations
about Cisco, please let me know.

Rockbat is ready for some skydiving!

Here you could see the little blue guy with some sofubi brothers.

That’s it! I think everything is said about this awesome vintage collectible.
If another Rockbat will ever pop up on Yahoo, I’m pretty sure the price will
be astronomical…with the help of this Brog ;-)

Tekkaman: biceps-posing-knock-off sofubi

Filed under: Co. NAKAJIMA,Stephan Halder,Stoopid,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 12:35 pm

It happened last year. I scanned as usual Tekkaman auctions on Yahoo Japan
and…BANG…there was this strange looking Tekkaman vinyl.
Never seen this guy before, or after this auction again. Nobody bid und him,
so far I remember. No wonder. He looked horrible on the auction fotos.
Well, don’t mean his general styling. He looked super dirty.

When he arrived a few weeks later I could say. YES, he was super dirty!
Looked that he spent the last 20 years in an oil spill. Poor oily, slimy, stinking bastard.
But after a few hours of intensive cleaning he looked pretty nice.
And again: Shit preserves condition.

Here’s the man! He stands 9,45 inches (24 cm) tall, completely vinyl and he could
move his arms & upper part of his body.

He don’t look that bad. Maybe his arms are a “bit” deformed.
But if you photograph him from below, his arms look “ok” ;-)

It seems that my Tekkaman had some serious fights during his long toy life.
His fists are pretty worn and he also lost the tip of one of his “horns”.


Ok…his arms look strange. Non-stop-biceps-posing-style.

Posing with the Nakajima standard size sofubi and the big Talker.

He has no markings on his feet or somewhere else. Poor little no-name bastard!
Lets be generous and give him a cool name: Tekkaman BPKO sofubi

If you know his parents —> BBS

Astekaizer autograph

Filed under: Co. YONEZAWA,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 2:59 pm

“I need this!” was my first thought, when the auction popped up on Yahoo.
I didn’t had a clue what’s the story was about this “autograph” and I still
have no clue today. Never seen one before.

A few more people wanted to win the auction, but at the end I succeed ;-)
I had to wait a few weeks, till this great addition to my Astekaizer (or is it Aztecaser)
collection arrived in germany.

Backside with cool compilation of japanese tokusatsu-super-stars.
So there must be more autoraph cards out there?!

The “autograph”on the front side isn’t printed on the card.
It’s a “real” hand written autograph. But what does the autograph say and who signed it?
Maybe Miki Shimamura (島村美輝), wo played Shun Takahane/Aztecaser (鷹羽俊/アステカイザー),
has written it and this is the fictive autograph of Astekaizer. Just an theory.

Lots of questions. Maybe someone has an answer.




So guys. I need answers!
If you know something about these mysterious autograph cards. Please tell me.
