    Charactics Monsters Tanks (?)
    So a few years ago I was hanging out with Rumble Monsters in Tokyo and he gave me a bunch of these tanks for my Emme Power The Derby Girl Line.
    Now I don't speak Japanese so I don't know the full story behind these tanks.
    I don't know what toy line they are from.
    What the deal was with them or the licensing.
    I have a few in different colors that I'll probably put up for sale here that are uncut and unpainted.
    Does anyone know what they are?
    There were a few things going on at the table that day so I can't speak to what I heard so I can't really say "These would be great for new designers doing 2 part toys who want to do a tank release"
    More looking for the info.
    I saw on here they were def used for the HEDORAH TANK but were there other releases?
    (They're F****ING diggety.)

    Uh, looks like I can't post pics on here anymore so go check out my IG #smashtokyotoys I'll go post them now.

    I'd be interested in some too :D
    The tanks and planes were also used in collaboration with Gargamel and Super7

    I'd love to get some more of these. You might want to talk to Bwana or Super7 as I know they have some pocket size toys that fit the tanks too.

    There were 2 sizes of Tanks that Gargamel used. The 1 shown above, and a smaller 1 too.

    Ok, so I found the 3 in the picture intact only.
    We gave away a few as promotions with Emme Power the Roller Girl which were the tanks and two derby girls of the first pull blue glitter version.
    They're def the same as the one in the pic above but I have more here that came cut no plugs which I'll hold onto for Tarryn's home set of derby girls. We don't generally keep anything we produce but we're learning to keep at least one of everything because there's stuff out there I've made I've never found again anywhere.
    Someone is currently after all three, I sent out a message saying I'll move down the list if it fall through. I'm not on SB very much, this is the last of my stuff, I'm very antsy to sell off something another artist gave me because I have tremendous respect for RM (great guy) and he's the only person who looks out for me in Tokyo but I'm sure I'll make it up to him on my next release. Also, this stuff is seriously just sitting in boxes here.
    Sorry I'm so computotarded with photos, it's been explained to me. I'll nut it out.

    Other stuff here is whacky stuff like vintage getter minis, Marmit Amerigoji, Vinyl Kingdan etc stuff I don't even know from defunct sofubis companies I got from Tokyo in the 90s.

    Thanks for the information, do you know if the smaller tank was also the "Charactics Monsters" molds? I have a list of questions for my next visit and I'm also going to Indonesia to a blow moulding factory. I thought I knew everything about certain sides of production and factories in Tokyo and Asia.
    I'm learning that 2 years out of the scene things have changed since guys/girls are flooding the scene with every type of bloody toy/type and material everything is changing.
    The old days of people thinking making toys was secret wizard business is long gone, now everyone knows that anyone can make toys.
