    That Hawaiian Goji it’s a beauty, looks like it was new.
    I need to star my piggybank for one of this, I don’t expected that ended so high but it’s one of the cleanest specimens that I have seen.

    @deafmetal I was gonna bring this listing here if no one else did. I was told this particular version is insanely hard to come by, so I was really excited to watch this listing. And I was not disappointed! :lol: Looks to be in pretty phenomenal shape, too! I love how vibrant those metallic green sprays still are.

    Yes the Hawaiian spray Gojis are obviously a key toy for most collectors, along with the J-tail and flesh base as one of the most prized of the vintage Godzillas. Prices on vintage Bullmark and Marusan Godzillas has been going up a fair amount, even in the last few months [for those of us who watch such things :oops: ]. This is pretty high, and is a heck of an investment, but for such a treasure, I can also see it fitting it with the market these days. Of course I am incredibly envious, but I am also happy to look at the photos of these stunners, with the full realisation that they will probably always remain out of my grasp.

    I have to give a shout out to Roger for tipping my hat to these sets. They are really great! As a certifiable nut for such things, even when not Star Wars, I love these. The seller actually had several of these, from some other licensed properties (sorry, these were the only ones I saved though). My guess is these are gachapon machine header cards, but what I find really interesting on them is they actually bear the General Mills trademark, which I would not have expected. Alas, clearly I was not the only one who thought they were pretty great.

    I really want these, could see having years of fun with these figures (loose of course).

    T rare Pachi slightly smaller than the no-copyright time thing the size of 27.5cm Takatoku Kikaider soft vinyl doll monster monster toy
    I know that in this board there are several experts in Kikaider, someone could explain to me why the final price, is this figure really rare or was simply a fight of egos at the end of the auction.
    Went for: 231,000 yen

    What makes it unique are the vertical lines molded into the eyes.

    The body looks like a standard size Takatoku/Bandai vinyl which is fairly common. This is the first time I've ever seen this bootleg come up for sale. I've never seen it in any sort of reference book either.

    For the price that was paid, I hope it's legit. The inside edge of the right eye look a little bumpy as though it was molded clay or something, not to mention the odd scratches on the blue paint around the right eye which expose the red vinyl below. I think it's a weird place for paint to be scratched off as it doesn't protrude like a nose or chest area. It also seems odd that a company producing a bootleg would do an exact copy of the standard size figure with the exception of only the eyes.

    SHUWATCH!!!

    Another extremely special, 1st type Ultraman from Marusan. An 'old man' favourite of mine. ;) Pretty damn amazing, if you ask me. For a special chance at one of these, this condition is actually quite good I think. Not that I was exactly in the bidding at such rates, but all in all a good buy for a lucky and discriminating collector. I would certainly be quite happy to drop that investment on one of these, over any modern toy that goes for as much. Understandably, there was a lot of interest on this one.





    This could be a paint-your-own kit, technically, but appears to be legit to me.

    Bullmark Mechander Robo. Half the toy and I repeat HALF THE TOY with a sale price of 301,000 yen. Bullmark only had two forays into the world of Jumbos and this is one of them.

    These and a load of other Star Wars keshi were catalogued in issue 10 of Mandarake Comp-Rex magazine. They are indeed licensed releases, by Takara.

    There's a whole series of these...

    @kappa Oh great man, thank you! I am going to have to see if I can track down a copy of that magazine. I have just a couple of the 'gachapon' style Star Wars toys, but would love to see the photos of all of the different types (and bootlegs) out there.

    Seems to be sold out now, unfortunately... Those mags are great though and worth picking up even for aftermarket prices (within reason!)

    Some(?) of the finished auctions:

    Dino-Riders Japan version

    I know it’s not sofubi and it is not something very strange, but I had never seen the Japanese version, I remember in my time they were expensive toys because they were very large sets, I got to have only the small ones.
    Went for: 49,000¥

    I never had any Dino-Riders but I love looking at them. Toy Galaxy did a good video overview of the line:

    Well that’s amazing to see. Not too crazy of an ending price either considering the scarcity. Grail status for sure

    Spotted Ulta Spiderman in Brooklyn several years ago. Damn shame that was.
