Review by JoshB
Ryuohmaru (龍王丸) comes from the anime Heroic Legend of Demon Wataru (Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru 魔神英雄伝ワタル) which aired from 1988-1989 on NTV in Japan.
This version of Ryuohmaru is made by Kabaya, a maker of candy toys. This toy would have been sold in grocery stores near the checkout and would be packaged with candy. The toy is actually a model kit that requires assembly. There were two different kits for this set, each using the same box. A small hole is punched out of the side so you can see what color the kit is, thus denoting what toy you got.
Although it is a candy toy, it's hardly cheap. The plastic feels nice and solid and once constructed you have a fully articulated toy. Ryuohmaru Is transformable between 2 modes.
Special thanks go out to our own uplandmod for this toy! He got this toy as a child from an asian grocery store in the states, and it landed in my collection. Thanks!
