Bullmark: ミラーマン

Filed under: Co. BULLMARK,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 4:29 pm

My little sunday Mirrorman Brog.

Bought this Bullmark sofubi a few years ago on Y!JP.
Some of you might remember the epic “im_power” auctions.

This Mirrorman is about 24 cm / 9,45″ tall.

I think this guy is a bit rarer than other Mirrorman sofubis,
there are lots of them, because I haven’t seen another specimen
since I bought this one. But who knows…

Sexy feet markings.

Here you could see him with a few brothers.

Nice toy! That’s it. Nothing more to say.

Banso: Mirrornan pop-up book

Filed under: Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 3:10 pm

Ohhhh nooooooo! Not again Mirrorman…

Sorry guys for bothering you with my Mirrorman overkill
in the last few weeks! Feel free to abuse me in the comments.

But I have to post this wonderful pop-up book.

These Banso books are the Mercedes Benz under the pop-up world.
Fantastic artwork, double sided pop-up-action and it even comes in a slipcase.

Ok, lets start with the pop-up show.

Starring: Aian, Maruchi(s), Invera, Dakaron and Kittyfire
Enjoy lots of kaiju battle action!

All’s well that ends well.

Mirrorman kicked many kaiju asses and the world is safe again.

Yonezawa Mirrorman vs Ikea Detolf

Filed under: Co. YONEZAWA,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 3:48 pm

Here’s my saturday DIY BROG.

My DIY story started on a cold dezember day last year.
Just in the second I won that Yonezawa giant size Mirrorman on Yahoo,
I knew that I had a problem. A big problem! Exactly 18″/48,7cm big.

How could I get this Mirrorman into my Detolf glas display?
The figure is 18″ and the maximum height of the display levels
is around 15″…maybe cutting of Mirrorman’s head. Ok, not really
an option!

I’m pretty sure the other bidders on Yahoo hat the same thoughts and
gave up early. Now I had to find a solution for the “problem” ;-)

I started a little resarch in the internet and found a few different
possibilities how to “modify” the good old Detolf. A few modifications
seemed to be too complicated, others didn’t look good, but one idea
was just perfect I thought.

The solution is: U-clamp terminal or wire rope clip

First I measured the diameter of the metal rod that holds the
glass shelfs and ordered 4 wire rope clips (size 4-5mm).

Theoretical these clips could hold the glass shelf alone. You just
lay the glass on the metal bolt/nuts. But this is not really safe and
you could easily destroy the glass. So it’s better to build some kind of
“substructure” for the glass shelf to make everything more solid & safe.

As “substructure” I used s aluminium bar that I had at home.

That’s how it looks at the end. I also put some foam material between
the aluminium bar and the glass shelf. So the glas won’t be scratched.

The “construction” is pretty solid and now you could choose the
postion of the glass shelfs yourself. Yeah! Enough room for Mirrorman.

I think it would look much better when I use aluminium bars that
are a bit more slim & filigree. But it’s ok for now.

Now the tall guys have enough headspace and all in all the
new “glas shelf adjusting system” doesn’t look that bad.

So, all Detolf owners out there, don’t be afraid buying giant sofubis!
