Aw, but they don't have the other three package designs.

Here are my Transformers rubbers :P
Just won these on Yahoo Japan Auctions. Rob pointed out that these would be the only actual Southern Cross toys made in Japan :)

They're also the only Southern Cross products that can travel through a human digestive tract totally unscathed.
Wow, those are pretty cool!
I almost forgot that I bid on this, and I paid entirely too much, but at last, the search is over:




Nice, Roger. I know how much this meant to you :p

Oh man, I didn't realize the old erasers had catalogs with illustrations. Yet another thing I eventually want scans of...

-Paul Segal

"Oh, the anger is never far, never far." -SteveH
Yep, they had little catalogs in the capsule with them.

Gunkeshi Club (which is now down) had good scans of the catalogs. This site has scans too, but unfortunately they're pretty small:

Do the SD erasers fit inside? Take a picture of one of them using it.

Yep, they're designed to. I have a Nemo and a Hizack with the ballute gear, and I will definitely take pics when the ballute arrives.

These companies make custom ERASERS:

What will YOU make?
Wow, you only need about two grand to commission a production run of custom erasers.

This is from the new VOTOMs "Real Toy Collection" book. Check out the kesshigomu tracking satelite!

Holy guacamole, the tracking satellite! I just got that book today, I'll start digging through it.

I didn't know what to expect from the book, but it's pretty nice(although it's missing the shitty Seven 1/48 Snapping Tortoise and the sublime Battling Combo ATs). It would be more useful if I didn't already have most of the toys, but that's I guess that's my problem, not the book's. :)

Here's another shot of VOTOMs kesshigomu I found on 2chan today:

Hey, whats thats Mandarake Trash? Is it a Magazine? I need that issue if it is.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today at the Umeda Mandarake I discovered that SD ERASERS are still going strong. 2,100 yen for a Destroid Monster, and twice that much for a HAL X-10 from Patlabor.

Meanwhile, on a shelf nearby, two vintage Takara 1/24 Brutishdogs sat gathering dust with price tags under 3,000.

How the mighty have fallen.
Is this your heaven, Roger?

That's not Heaven, that's Heaven's low-rent embassy in Luxembourg.

I have at least ten times that amount, in two large Ziploc gallon freezer bags. I post pictures of them from time to time, but the snobs here ignore them. Lousy snobs.
ERASERS are a powerful enough medium that can ensure every character gets made. This week, I saw not one, but two Orguss toy sets that had ERASERS of the Jabberwock in them.

I haven't seen a lot of erasers made of the designs and characters that I like lately. Therefore erasers are in danger. WTF erasers?

Don't see Fatty erasers too often:

6 days left.

Damn erasers. Damn them to hell.

Damn them for there not being a King Kong one...to finish off the Arklons:



(uh, the Chibull and Mechagodzilla on the end are placeholders...to make me feel better...until a Kong can be obtained)

I don't think these are erasers but...

[www.toysdaily.com]
Holy shit! I guess eventually everything gets reissued.
Hey Roger, do erasers count as toys?
Why not?
Precisely, it's all a matter of perception and what amuses us. My dog thinks that the neighbor dog's crap is a toy, who am I to argue with him?
Kaiju-Taro started an ERASER web store, and it's available in English!
