    A couple nice figures i felt should be archived here. Both amazing in their own way, both way out of my price range. I'd only heard of the blue baltan from reading this board, but never seen one for sale.

    I would say though beautiful it is, bidding on that Peguira was really a bitter experience for me.

    Although not big on series robos, I will admit to some envy here. Great character, solid looking and the rocket jet thing are all pretty nice!

    I enjoyed the auction title on this one: The most difficult! Those days! 3 kinds of sacred treasures!

    Bullmark Sasahiller sold for ¥983,000:

    Likely the best photos seen since Saito-san's mook which the auction titles reference.

    Woah... I wonder what the freight charges would be on something like that.

    That would be an incredible basement / decor piece. I couldn't imagine having a collection.

    Anyone grab the Rakugaki goji earlier today? First time i've seen one come up for sale. Sadly, I couldn't try.

    I waved as it passed by, but I know at least one forum member was taking a shot at this one. Sold for 181k yen:

    [​IMG]

    The last two Marusan rakugaki goji went for just over 150k yen back in Nov/Dev 2018 within a month of each other. They both also had paint remnants like this one, but without the small crack in the foot. The first one below from Nov 2018 with the yellow paint on the spine even had a double foot engraving.

    Can someone drop some knowledge on this "Rakugaji" Goji? Is this a like a blank version that kids could just paint?

    rakugaki means graffiti / scribble / doodle in japanese . gargamel and some other companies like bullmark paid homage to the goji and released blank blue versions of their toys as well.

    In addition to what @michael mentioned, I think that Marusan included a small set of primary colors paints (red/yellow/blue) and possibly a brush as a "rakugaki kit" with these original light blue vinyl blanks back in the late 1960's. The majority of the vintage examples that appear now have similar old and flaking red/yellow/blue paints which look to be amateur/child paints often with awesome and goofy applications. I especially enjoy seeing how children back in the 60's/70's painted these old kaiju toys. The yellow paint seems to have held up the worst.

    [​IMG]

    To add some legitimacy to the theory, Marusan reissued the toy in 2010-2011 with a recreation paint set and brushes and backer card.

    [​IMG]

    In addition to the Gojira, Marusan also released other characters as rakugaki blanks in light blue vinyl back in the late 1960's including Garamon, Kanegon, Gomess (fixed and movable tail), Pegira, Goro, and Pagos (on brown vinyl rather than light blue). I believe there was also an Ultraman on gray vinyl? (paging @ultrakaiju ):

    It is incredibly rare to find an original light blue blank vinyl that is unpainted but they do exist. The blanks that have survived today seem to vary between brighter light blue and a darker teal color. It could be environmental aging or the factory vinyl that is creating the differences between these but when you see them side-by-side they look a bit different.

    When you just post the link, all you get is the end of auction message. Would it be better to do a screen cap and then link the jpeg to here?
