I LOVE TAKEMI! Listen up..
Super Combining Magical Robo Gingaizer is a fantastic line of diecast metal robot toys brought to life by the long defunked Japanese toy comany Takemi in 1977.
Gran-Fighter is the red guy
Spin-Lancer is the blue guy
Bull-Gator is the green guyThe Gingaizer diecasts really embody the true Soul of Gokin. These guys really deliver on all levels. One thing is for sure. They look and feel VERY “Vintage”. I would venture to say that they posses what some of us like to call the “FUNK” of Japanese Toys. This savy trio have more style in one of their spring loaded fists or magnemo sporting faces than an entire line of most new “Japanese” toys has in a whole series. The box art alone is a testament to the time and the “flavah” of Japanese Super Robot toys.
Takemi, without a doubt, put the “O” in obsurity when it came to their depictions of the characters likeness’ in their toys. Just take a look at their DX Pegas. With the exception of Machine Blasters, it seems as if all of their Bigger Gokin outings (much like the shows they represented) were like freak shows.
Most collectors of the Takemi Bigger Gokin pieces often openly admit that the sheer lack of QA is not only obvious but annoying. Still, the Takemi Bigger Gokin pieces remain some of the most desireable toys of their kind due to their undeniably angular and rebelious designs.
If Popy was Glam, Takemi was surely Punk. Nuff said..
If this kind of thing floats your boat, you can learn more about these “Mazinger by way of Playskool” toys via the ToyboxDX Datafile Takemi’s Big Assed Gokin! .
If your poison is Transformers, you will most likely be very dissapointed in this series of toys. These robots don’t have dumb-ass robo-personalities. These robots are actually piloted by human beings. Also, unlike the Transformer toys they actually look very good when displayed as robots. Buyer beware.
