    They're all great, but it's that diorama that makes my day! Wonderful finding.

    trying very hard not to imagine what those dinos cost back in that time. Still, to me they are beautiful enough to have been worth it! Great catalog? Or mook?

    Not sure, sorry. I often just grab things off Japanese twitter or whatever, so i have no context of where the scan is from. I do improve most of them in photoshop, so they're not exactly the same as i find them ... 8)

    That right there evokes a certain type of magic. I remember feeling it with the Flintstones Rock Cruncher plastic kit as a kid. Not a reimagined toy...a familiar illustration/drawing/comic right in front of you, as a physical shape with volume. #13 wins.

    1. Would kill for that T-28. Wouldn't even submit expenses.
    2. Beautiful catalog over all
    3. What year was that? Didn't see a date. Wondering because I have a vague memory of a robot much like Captain Patrol. Might just be wishful dementia or something, but cool!
    4. Is it just me or does the Giants baseball player look like the villain from Minions only with hair?

    Around 1966 apparently ... :thumbsup:
    I've probably posted that catalogue before on this thread (or similar scans) its hard to remember everything, so i don't think doubling up is a bad thing occasionally.

    Star Wars in japanese looks new somehow. Nazi GI Joes? Kick bags? Metal looking rockets that could double as anti-armor rounds? That post has it all!!! I am worried that the Whack-A-Kaiju Mole had a built-in destruction factor that means none of 'em ever made it to resale. Sigh.

    I'm so sorry that our culture can't tolerate an unvandalized vending machine; these are so great, want all the minis!
    As for the capsule train, what genius! A toy based on the toy container itself, encouraging me to spend my allowance on other toy capsules! Wowsers!
    Would also pay top gold for the little race car driver tracksuit if it came in old guy sizes, looks comfy and sharp. Great retro advert day!

    That game where you control a kappa's dick seems really on brand for a Japanese kids toy.

    Great selection from when the old met the new generation stuff. Now it seems like a distant age. Now with kappa anatomy? Never could read Japanese, a long held regret. Anyway, fabulous stuff!

    Cool as f*, as always! Question: on the fifth photo down, there is a rather large price in the upper right corner. Even divided by 100 for a rough yen to dollar figure, wow. Is that per figure?
