    Battlehawk vinyl question
    I was wondering if there are any Battlehawk collectors here, as I ran across a toy that I can't seem to ID.

    There are several sets, and 3 bagged vinyls that are all about the same size, 13 cm. A friend also sent me this old auction photo of a bigger version, which looks to be about 17 cm or so.

    Anyone have any idea how this was sold? I have a shot of a solo Battlehawk on a card as well, which I thought might be the same toy... Unfortunately I don't know the size of that one.

    Anyway, any insight is appreciated!

    I dont collect this line but here is an entry on the amazing toy blog that touches on them (halfway down). Looks like there are both Takemi and Bullmark versions. the Takemi seem to have came with a bag and header

    Yeah, as you're rightfully said, there are a few different sets and package variations on these dudes. There was smaller 'Popy' scale guys from both Bullmark and Takemi, which are the most common. You can see some decent coverage of the line at this link:

    Takemi____________________________________vs_____________________ Bullmark

    Interestingly, as I think we've discussed on some other toys (TT Akumaizer for example), these seem to both be made by Takemi, but only the latter being licensed for production through Bullmark.

    And then there is also a larger/standard sized figure from Bullmark, which I think is the carded version you've shown there.



    And here is a Mook page showing some of the toys from the line.



    EDIT: some of that answered above by Jonathan as I was writing this up :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys! I really appreciate the help. I ran across that amazing-toy site as well, which is very helpful as it shows the two smaller versions next to each other.

    Interestingly, that book has a shot of a larger Big Hawk as well - both that one and the Battlehawk as captioned as "Middle Sized." I've seen that book but I can't recall what's on the cover though. It's all Go Nagai / Dynamic Pro toys, right?

    Here are some more shots of what I have to round out the list (so far):

    carded sets / small sized:

    Battle Hawk 3 Set -- Queen Hawk, Battle Hawk, Big Hawk -- Marushin
    Battle Hawk 5 Set -- Crimson Demon Soldier, Big Hawk, Battle Hawk, Queen Hawk, Skull Sickle -- Takemi, Bullmark

    bagged / small sized - slightly larger than carded versions above:

    Battle Hawk - Takemi, Marushin
    Big Hawk - Takemi, Marushin
    Queen Hawk - Takemi, Marushin

    [​IMG]

    carded / middle size:
    Battle Hawk - carded / "middle sized" - Takemi, Bullmark
    Big Hawk- carded (?) / "middle sized" - Takemi, Bullmark (I assume) -- in book above

    Cool! Nice shot of those die cast guys! I only have those and their crummier brothers - the little Marushin die casts.

    Your group shot really highlights the differences between the two vinyls. They really blend together for me when you don't see them side by side.

    Here are the small Marushins:
