I have a heart for underdogs.
Here is a little foto review of the 1977 Sakura Zakuraman.
Let’s see what you get for ca. 50 bucks.
You get a nearly complete diecast robot, a battery and a wonderful box.
The box art is absolute fantastic. Finest vintage japanese graphic design.
I think, it could compete against every Popy box.
Zakuraman has a special action feature. You could put a battery in
“backpack” and his head starts blinking. I think there are no too much
vintage diecast robots with “electrical” features. Nakajimas Groizer X
has a comparable gimmick.
OK. Lights out.
..doesn’t he look cool?!
Another “action feature” is his secret chest cover.
One of the biggest secrets of mankind…why does he have this hidden compartment?
Some detail shots. Z like Zakuraman.
Remember. You could get your own Zakuraman for around $50.
A absolute bargain for such a great toy. Don’t wait too long!
After this review his price will go up ;-)
