It’s difficult fo find them in Japan ..

These three guys are the Italian version of the Takemi Grandfigher from the original TV serie Gingaizer .

Ace of spades: Takemi Gingaizer Granfighter standard sofubi 超合体魔術ロボギンガイザー

Filed under: Co. TAKEMI,Erik Sjoen,Toy News — erik sjoen @ 9:23 pm


1977 rules baby! Grendizer (the tail end of the series, thank you Duban) for starters, which Gingaizer no doubt Nippon Animation’s answer to.. What is there to say about a standard sized vinyl? Two points of articulation and an AWESOME backer and header card! A very rare sight indeed. It pisses me that these are not more of these standard guys available. I have a very hard time believing that they were / are popular as the show sucked ass so bad….

The other two standard sofubi continue to elude me for now, but I will hopefully finish the trifecta of Granfighter, Spinlancer and Bullgator soon.

Reigning Looney in partnership with Fewture have released some modern representations here, but have yet to deliver.

Head over to the BBS and discuss HERE!

The Good, the Bad and the Boss Palder

Filed under: Co. TAKEMI,Erik Sjoen — erik sjoen @ 6:06 pm

Thanks to Robert Duban I have a new holy grail. Every Xmas morn we adorn our Machine Blaster footie jammies and call each other to report on our respective hauls. Well, next year I’ll not only have my jammies, I’ll have my pistolas in tow. It seems every year I digress a little bit more.. Hmmmm…….

Happy Halloween!

Filed under: Co. TAKEMI,Erik Sjoen — erik sjoen @ 6:05 pm

Maz style.. Oh yeah! Don’t you just LOVE carded sets? Well, it’s that time of year again. Costumes, candy and the ability to play dress up that only comes once a year. I guess I’ll be busting this off the card. Funny, as it will look INSANELY hilarious plopped smack dab in the middle of my fat ass head.. I think Chris, Mark or Matt might be able to dig up a picture of me at Bar GojiraYa sporting a T28 mask. Funny looking I tell ya, keeping in mind these were made for little kids heads.


On second thought, maybe I’ll just stay home throw on my mask, maz bling, strap in my 9 and fly my brain condor around the house. Did I mention, in my underwear?

Takemi: Apolon Legger Watering Pod

Filed under: Co. TAKEMI,Stephan Halder,Toy Love,Toy News — chogoman @ 5:48 pm

Here is the ultimate watering pod for you!
Now you could water your zen garden with style.

Another absolute must-have for every serious Diapolon collector.
The Apolon Legger watering pod.

Not only a “plastic toy”.
A highly sophisticated design piece with lots of features.
Like 2 movable arms, ergonomic handle on the back and a big hole.
Yeah, you could fill it with water…not much…well…ok…
enough for a small zen garden.

Here are some markings on this Legger.
Looks like Takemi, hope I’m right or I have to rename this BROG.
Didn’t know, till I got this toy, that Takemi made Diapolon stuff.

Here you could see how big this guy is…

Giant BROG for a small toy.
Just found another watering pod robot on Yahoo Japan.
A Diapolon, same style as the Legger.

I won it!….sure…cause I have a big zen garden  ;-)

1978 Takemi Ramble Giant. You love his style or hate it.

The anachronistic tin-robot-look of his body is very special.
I like him.
