    I do not understand why stores don't tell you about what they're selling. Not everybody is a a toy ace and instinctively knows how big every toy ever made is, how many points of articulation it has, etc. You're supposed to be selling me on the product, why am I the one who needs to do the research? I'm sure this probably sounds silly to most of you all, but it really is the rule rather then the exception. And it's damned inconvenient.

    And I'm not asking how tall these are, they're neat, but not particularly interested, And they look about 5 1/2" anyway.

    Gonna go yell at a cloud now.


    Oh, hey, wait. I just realized I have a Secret Base Devil Bado . In fact, the "gears" on that half of his brain (?) match up almost identically with this guy's. I had no idea he was based on something. He was actually one of the first if not the first piece of sofubi I bought. Hey, look at that. I'm not as off-topic as I usually am/started out the post.

    doh! Added some size info to the listings. Also, be sure to check out our ancient article on Astro-Mu from Super7 Magazine Issue #1 - available for download here:

    Super7 #1

    Note that these are modern reproductions by Medicom Toy of figures original produced by Nakajima in the early 1970s.

    These were very nicely done; surprised that there are still any up there.
