"...tend to get too wrapped up in the high-end, serious adult ‘collector’ segment of the market, missing the contemporary, genuinely fun, simpler toys which grabbed us all as children."

Umm, had I the money, tools, & skills, I'd be just as knee-deep in SD Gundam models as I am in Super Sentai & Transformers.

This is ten kinds of awesome.

This is ten kinds of awesome. I love all the references to old mecha in there, like the obvious nod to the Shigcon Tank, among others. The feet also have a cute oldschool Fisher Price kind of feel to them, too. I may have to snag this guy later. "Candy" toys are not to be underestimated these days, with both Bandai/Plex and Kabaya turning out some high-quality, incredibly imaginative product. Were I not so already inundated with my own obsessions, I'd be collecting Mugenbine, Bukiborg, Hone-Hone Saurus, and others, rather than only having some great samples.

And the heritage runs deep too, with the super-creative, classic Lotte Super Joint Robo omake toys fetching a hefty yen among Japanese collectors nowadays.
