    These are one of those things I am definitely regretting not picking more up of. In hindsight, and with a bit more time, I could have easily added several more and for very reasonable prices. Anyways, here are a few I have snagged. Time to shoot that music video. :mrgreen:

    I should 'prolly already know this, but...
    Is the magazine hosted digitally anywhere, or available for purchase as pfd files? I'm guessing since you had to take a photo of the photo the answer is no, but I'd be happy to learn otherwise!

    Thanks, that's a fine place to start. I should have been subscribed to your stream already considering how much great candy you've got on your shelves!

    A couple of additions since the article. Still missing Viras - a very rare toy. It's been 2-3 years since I have seen one for sale.

    Scobot- really cool stuff. I love the Zone Fighter one, you dont see that one too much. Thanks for posting these. I actually just bought an akai ranger pendant a couple minutes ago, score! :D
    Mark- nice updated Gamera shot, that Gyaos is great.

    A few more since the article:
    [​IMG]
    TekkaMan and Pegas are by Nakajima. Tetsuan Atom is by Patora. The Snoopy is an unmarked rubber squeaker. I am blanking on the name of the guy in the vest...something like large Franz??? He has the production company name but no manufacturer. Possibly Bullmark as they did other sofubi of this character.
