    Re:

    Can I ask what drives up the price on these toys? Are they ultra rare?
    Can you give a ballpark of what they would fetch in an auction?

    Re: Re:

    They are ultra rare Bullmarks from the 70s. The offers I have had for these have been in the 5 figures, and that's for each of them.

    Wow, I wonder how they were doing the "shrinky-dink" process for those back in the 70s. 3-D pantograph machines? That chemical shrinkage process? These are the questions that keep me awake at night.

    perhaps your vision is caulked. It is greyish vinyl.

    Unfortunately I have only one other pic, the two of them in the station wagon:

    [​IMG]

    The other guy with me in the first pic I posted is Tadayuki from M1GO. He picked me up in Niigata and took me to Kodomo no Jidaikan (Yuji's toy museum), where the Red Kings were going to be stored.

    Wow, that was about four years ago now. Time flies.

    Here's a big expensive item they had in the exhibit, a Bullmark Jirass store display. It's about 4-5 feet tall:

    I'm trying to think of the largest and most expensive toys I have, but I really don't have anything bigger than a Bullmark Giant Size Godzilla reissue, or anything pricey that's Japanese. Pretty lame, huh?

    I really don't remember details about colors, so the pics are the best record.

    When I was in the art-bronze industry in the 90's, there were still plenty of artists who pointed down (or up) sculptures by hand using simple measuring tools such as calipers and then resculpting to their size calculations.

    Sounds crazy implausible, I know, but that's only 'cause we's all so spoiled (already) by technology.
