Popy: Spider-Man & Leoparodon Set

Spiderman and a giant japanese robot, what a cool combination.
The dream came true in the late 70ties when Toei produced a TV series
based on Marvel’s popular character.

Popy made lots of cool toys related to this series. Chogokins, plasic toys, Dolls, sofubis etc.

One of these toys is this Spider-Man & Leoparodon Set.
I bought it in the early 90ties in germany from a guy with a giant
Spiderman collection. This guy, Peter Bergner, is a real “toy-collecting-legend”
here in germany. I remember that I made a custom Popy box, for a Spidey figure
for him…holy shit, long time ago.

Spidey & Leoparodon are  made complete out of plastic.
Cheap toys, but they look great in the nice designed blister box.

Here are a few more detail shots of the accessories and the box art.

More fotos as usual in the BBS.

The postcard that came with the set is real funky.
Spider-Man on the fotos looks a bit…hmmm…strange…
maaan, his  lower  legs…a bit short?
