    JB,

    I really enjoyed that review from a few years back and hoping you would do more at a later date,

    This is a great design as well! Reminds me of Captain Scarlet!

    There are so many 70's sci-fi hot wheels and matchbox toys like this and its always great when they get covered,

    ...in toy shops in England when I was growing up. You still see the odd one from time to time, usually in very poor condition, at antique shops, charity shops or jumble sales. One of the vehicles in the line was almost certainly (its pretty much identical to the toy!) used as the model for the "Killdozer" tank used by Judge Dredd in the classic 2000AD saga "The Cursed Earth"!

  • I believe these are 18,000YEN not 8,000YEN but I could be wrong.

  • I dig it. And I can see some potential custom work, here. I mean if they can do stuff to g1 ironhide and Ratchet, why not this?

    The Toys R Us chain in the US don't have stuff like this. The closest we have are animals, dinosaurs, dragons, and maybe one or two fantasy creatures like a Chimera or an anthropomorphic animal warrior. That's cool and all but I wants KAIJU! Though I guess I could buy one of those el cheapo plastic/rubber dinosaurs and re-purpose it into a kaiju....anyway, enough ranting. I want to talk about the figure itself. He looks very similar to the monster "Plexton" from Super Human Samurai Syber Squad except Plexton's belly is brown instead of black. He has the same spikey/rocky textures as well as being red. Plexton was a fire monster and it's sister "Gramm" was an ice monster.

    I hope he holds a pilot/figure...?

    Interesting figure. He is also growing on me. I like the idea of doing more with trendmasters. They really did jump in and make a lot of toys figures. I only wish I was paying attention at the time, I still need a stealth and vortex voltron.

  • This may be the first MP I ever import as I'm not certain Hasbro and Toys R Us are going to import a Japanese exclusive character toy at this price point (appearances in comics notwithstanding).

  • Radon (Rodan)

    Rodan is in my top 4 list of favorite kaiju. I think the reason why I like him so much is that he uses plain, raw physical strength and speed. Like Anguirus, Varan, and Gorosaurus, he doesn't have any energy beams or projectiles. He doesn't need them. Not when he can produce powerful, hurricane-like winds.

    I've seen GvMG II some years ago but I forgot if Rodan used his energy beam or not. I've noticed that he is one of the very few kaiju without any kind of projectile or energy attacks.

    Reviews like this are why CollectionDX exists. This was beautiful, heartfelt, and packed with information on a toy that might never get the amount of love it deserves.

    Great job, man. Great job.

    Lucky. Over the year I've collected 3 monsters (Goo Fish, Bones, and Goldar) and 3 Rangers (Red, Yellow, and Blue) Hopefully I can expand my collection a little bit.

  • There's like three companies that are doing Kankai Collection figures (Bandai, TakaraTomy and Good Smile Company/Max Factory).

  • Definitely smaller. Figmas are roughly 1/12 scale, and the preorder info indicates that that's not changing for this release, advertising him at about 15 cm.

  • This is fantastic. I am absolutely bouncing off the walls for this.

    My favorite part is when Hamada (of Downtown fame) loses it when they show off the sliding shoulders.

  • He looks good. If he isn't an exclusive, I will probably pick this up

    Your comment means so much! I actually struggled with this review right from the idea stage for a long time, starting over at several points, partly because if was so personal. Even when I finally finished it I had no idea if it was actually something people would find interesting to read. Just hearing people reminisce about Yappy totally makes it worth all the effort.

    Found this guy at a flea market. His mid section is a little loose, but other that that I love it. I was surprised at how heavy he was due to the die-cast metal content. Car mode looks really good, robot mode is very interesting. At first I thought his arms were too small, but then I got over it. Oh, nobody laugh but this was the very first (REAL) Gobot/Machine Robo figure I've ever owned so of course I've got to show the line some love.

    Even though I didn't have many playsets growing up (Four, but five if you count the TNMT Mini Technodrome) they were still something that I loved as a child. All of the different accessories, the sharp (and sometimes not so sharp) details, as well as everything being compact so you won't lose anything. These days I've seen maybe one or two playsets but nothing compared to what was available during the 90's. Is it just me or maybe I haven't been looking hard enough? I'm talking about non-Lego playsets only. You can find Lego stuff literally EVERYWHERE.
