Make Lucky Bags Great Again!!!
I'd love to trade for an unpainted Mecha Zag
Once again . . .
Any word on when the Angel Abby bags are landing stateside?
Got mine today, finally! I'd post a pic but I have an awful headache and am tired as all hell. Just not feeling up to it right now.
It's a blank Mecha Zag + TO Garudan bag. A little bummed they didn't put red wings on the guy, but I'll live.
Weird that they didn't add red to the wings like the TO Deathra
GID Garudan doesn't look like it has a clear body like the 2013 LB Deathra
Seemingly no third party (for lack of a better word) sculpts
Maybe trimming corners to keep the price at $300?
Was it Flynn who started the Deathra rumors?
They just shipped last night.
Don't think they were rumors, just him being hopeful.
I believe FOE Gallery out of Massachusetts put their allotment of bags up today. In case anyone was still looking to get in on the fun.
Got my bag in from DDR this morning.. From the looks of it, nothing new for me to show. But, I am very happy with everything! Light blue Mecha Zag is beautiful, and I love TO Garudan. Not to mention I am thrilled with both Vendor Bots, little GID pilot is just wonderful.
Seems like standard bag is standard.
Anybody know when the birth of gunfingers was? My first and WAYmost indelible exposure was Johnny's giant robot.
My friend got a clear micro conifas in his bag, I think that is a old release .
I got the TO Garudan bag. It's pretty sweet in hand.
First saw them at D-Con last year.
I had thought they made their debut that weekend..
^^^ I meant when did rocket-firing fingertips enter the world, not the Garagaverse!
Be more specific David! LOL Now I am curious as well.
I'm pretty sure that the second rockets were invented, people started to pretend to shoot them from their fingertips
On March 17, 1845, Stephen Perry of the rubber manufacturing company Messers Perry and Co, Rubber Co Manuf London patented the fist rubber bands made of vulcanized rubber. Perry invented the rubber band to hold papers or envelopes together.
So probably March 18th, 1845.
I think Giant Robot predates it, but the new Mecha-Z hands are probably based on the vintage Bullmark Cyborg MG2 missile-firing toy as well (given the matching color scheme on this year's LB painted Mecha-Z). There were a lot of toys with that feature in that time period, e.g., Jumbo Machinders. I am also curious to know who originated the concept.
Another famous gun-hand design was the Gouf from the original Gundam series. But that was a few years later.
I think BIG LOO was made before the Jumbo Machinders. It was early 60's I believe.
BIG LOO retailed for $9.99. Made of injection molded hi-impact polystyrene parts, stood three-feet tall (37-inches), a foot wide, and nine inches deep. Its key features included a sight scope with cross-hairs, two flashing battery-powered red eyes with an on-off switch, a hand-cranked mechanical voice box that played ten messages, two rubber-tipped darts that were fired from triggers on the back, a left arm that held four red balls which were fired from a spring in the left elbow, and a right arm that had a grasping claw able to pick up objects. One foot was equipped with a spring-powered rocket. It could also squirt water from its navel and was equipped with a compass, whistle, bell, a Morse code clicker with chart, and could bend over at the waist .
