“You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me?”
“Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me?”
“Well I’m the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you’re talking to?”

Today it’s time for a bit Submarine love.
These Bullmark Mirrorman (ミラーマン) Submarine Sets pop up
quiet regular on Y!JP. I always liked the box art, but this set never was
really on top of my “want list”. A few weeks ago I had the chance to win
one for a pretty nice price…I couldn’t say no.
As you could see, the box art is quiet nice. Some cool
Mirrorman-Kaiju-Submarine battle action. The set contains
4 little plastic kaijus (Maruchi, Aian, Dakaron and Invera)
and the Submarine. The sub is surprisingly heavy and is a
The Sumarine has two action features. A wind-up propellor drive
and a “water ballast tank” that could be filled with water….or sake.
Here you could see the propellor drive in action. It could cut off your fingers easy ;-)
With the crank you boost the propellor.
You could see the filler cap for the “water ballast tank” on the left side.
Here’s a close up of the 4 Kaijus. Too bad that there’s no Mirrorman in the set.
I guess he’s in the Submarine…
But Mirrorman has other opportunities to kick the Kaijus asses!
He don’t really need a Submarine…he has his deadly tricycle!
So, get lost you little plastic suckers…

Lets start 2013 with a mini Brog and a really mini Robot.
This is a Yonezawa Goriking No.10. This guy usually kicks
Astekaizer’s (プロレスの星 アステカイザー) ass, in the pro-wrestling
tokusatsu series created by Go Nagai in 1976.
Here we go…
Box had seen better days, but I’m happy that I have the
little sucker. Next pic is a close-up of the back side.
Now Goriking himself. Solid zinc & plastic mix.
Here comes the usual feet fetish photo…Goriking is walking on decals.
Here’s the mini Goriking with his big brother (No.8).
That’s it for today. Now I have to find the “No.3 – really mini Astekaizer“
and the “No.7 – really mini Mach Beat“, never seen No.7 before.
I also need “No.13 – Mach Beat with Magic Motor”, also never seen
this on before. Pretty exotic stuff. The hunt goes on, 2013 will be an interesting year ;-)

2012 is nearly over and I thought poor Gabura needed some extra love.
Some people call him Poophead…not very nice!
For those who don’t know Gabura.
Gabura (ガブラ) is one of the Akumaizer 3 guys, a popular japanese
tokusatsu TV series from the mid 70ties. He is the strong, beefy, “the thing”
kinda guy of the three.
First I wanted to make a little photo review about the Bullmark large sofubi
and started to shot a few photos…
…but than I thought that Gabura is such a cool guy with so many “different” faces.
Let’s make a little “Gabura-family-photo-review”.
Here we go…The Gaburas.
Made by Bullmark, Takatoku, Grip, etc
…and the smallest of the gang. Gabura key-chain
…ok, he looks like a Poophead!
