Hey Bert!

Is that Marmit's Parababy sculpt? I seem to recall them having done a midsize Mazinger vinyl before (paired with a Doctor Hell maybe?).

It sure looks like the Marmit - and I think it was paired with GaradaK7

Marmit Vinyl Paradise. The colored one I have is paired with Garada. There's another colored pair that I think is Aphrodite and Doublas. Kirkland's got the set of 4.

Someone on 'that other board' pointed out that you could do something really cool with extending the belly maggot into the guts in a way I hadn't thought of... here's hoping!

Nice! But you need to sink some circuit boards or something in that translucent acrylic, man! ;)
Sanjeev (Admin)
Ah, tell me about it. I was up last night dreaming of ways to pull something like that off! *Just* to get a figure cast in as pristine finish as this guy above takes WAY too much loot to be even in the realm of reasonable. If only!
Cut it out Sanjeev, just...stop! You're killing me over here. I neeeeed clear toys to put on my light up stands, and that is awesome.
IS that material poured acrylic? Or some other clear resin?
Sanjeev (Admin)
Well...I can have more made. But be prepared for wallet-busting! If anyone's seriously interested, PM me.

As for the material, it's just clear resin, but it's some special formula that makes it super-resistant to temperature flucuation (it's rated around 190 degrees F). Better for surviving the vucanizer. I also like it because it doesn't feel brittle like normal clear resin does.

Anyway, the astronomical cost comes from the days worth of meticulous wet-sanding they put in to get that flawless surface sheen. I love these guys--they know their shit. And big ups to Alen for putting me in touch with them!

A friend of mine up in Canada has been going full-tilt making clear & clear-colored resin recasts of all manner of Microman and Micronaut stuff. He even does rivet joints. Really amazing workmanship...

Wow, Ray, very nice. I love stuff that's clear all the way to it's toes, so when put over a light stand, the leg directly over the LEDs, lightpipes right up through the figure. Love it.


Clearly, I like a little boutique vinyl. Clearly, this makes me a hipster douchebag.

None of those are mine. They're the personal collection of the guy who makes them. And yeah, he does display a lot of them on those little LED stands! :-)

i loved those tomy walking robots back in the day!
Nice bubble blanket. Where'd you get it?

Perfect reflecting backdrop.
Is that THE very clear Mekabuton from the old TBDX ads?
MattAlt (Admin)
It was in a TBDX ad!?

I don't know if it's THE, but it's the one I've had for quite some time (and aside from Warren, I don't know of anyone offhand who has one - this stuff is off of most people's radar.)

Bahwooing-oing-oing!! ahaha

Yessir the TBDX ads in Super7 magazines, had that very toy with the words "For toys you never even knew existed!" A fine lure that sucked me in to the maw of this terrible lantern-anglerfish of a forum. ;0P (and the anglerfish is ANOTHER awesome toy too)

Great pic Matt!! That Mecha G is still my favorite.

I'm clear too!

Matt, that Gundam cutaway figure box is gorgeous. Vintage toy sets like that just look so good in the box.
