    So hoping Medicom releases a similar scale version of this guy (with the correct arms perhaps?)

    Maybe this guy don't have nothing of strange or rare but I never seen one before, besides the work on the helmet remind me the Fireman bootleg from Lixx.

    Wow! Never seen one before either! Love how the face looks through the clear mask.

    I also think the best thing is the helmet!
    For the sort of face I guess that is a big size figure.

    Yeah it does look like it came from the same bootleg company that did that Fireman and maybe also the bootleg Flying Attack Human with clear mask.

    I think this is the one you say.
    Unfortunately this is the only photo I found, too small. :(

    I can not imagine what would be a bad price! :o
    I had seen other race cars but not the Mazinger, but I like liquidsky say it is a beautiful piece.

    If I had seen that, I would have nudged it higher. Just so crazy cool.
    Especially when ugly contemporary toys (say NNNags) blow past that price in auctions.

    But then in opens the door into tin/metal, and not sure I want to enter that one....

    But again, so fucking cool.

    This is a little hard to see in these photographs, but it is a very light pale green vinyl all over painted dark green and then silver. That said the other I have seen and blue spray on top of the silver. Regrdless, they are near impossible to find.

    Was watching that Zone Fighter myself. Beautiful toy. I know Brian was after it, but those last 3-4 bids (167 in total) just went to crazy amounts. $5344 in US dollars at the end! How rare is this?

    A great figure, my favourite part of him is the two finger gesture. Somehow I am a complete sucker for toys that have poses like that. A great acquisition for someone's talker collection.

    Re: strange or rare yahoo auctions post here (after theyre o

    This is only the second Zone talker I have ever seen, and I have been looking for almost 15 years. The first was at Ichiban-boshi on consignment with a broken horn and broken fingers. It was there for yeas as it was several thousand dollars in broken condition. Eventually, that figure was listed and sold on yahoo for about a grand in broken shape, and I have regretted not buying it to at least have on the shelf until a better one came along. (Trying my best to complete my talker collection.) This is the only other one I have seen, and based on the prices people are asking for the Red Baron talker, I could see it even having gone higher.

    That said, I have a bunch of vintage duplicates and such to sell if anyone is looking for Hawaii figures and the like. I need to pay off a recent acquisition.....

    Re: strange or rare yahoo auctions post here (after theyre o

    I doubt it. There is not nearly enough hype surrounding those toys. And vintage collectors these days seem few and far between [unfortunately]. Though, sadly, that has not been reflected in the buying prices on Japanese markets too!

    So can we read between the lines and take that to mean that you were possibly the lucky buyer this time around Brian? :) I sure hope you didn't subject yourself to that incredible regret all over again. Sure is a nice talker, as I said. But, if not this particular toy, I hope you eventually share with us what you did pick up that is causing a sell-off of the duplicates.

    More vintage sharing goes for everyone please!

    Well, I know you're not the biggest Gorosaurus fan...so if you have a purple stripey one that's taking up too much room, you know who to call! LOL

    I am disappointed that the listing for the loose Ninja Arashi talker was prematurely ended by the seller as it looked to be in pretty good shape. I would have liked to see how that listing would have ended in a competitive bid.

    brianflynn thanks for the explanation, so it would be almost impossible to see another of this color. Almost an impossible mission take one at a axcesible price. :evil:

    Same here. I can only assume they got offered a price for the Ninja Arshi and the Gatchaman and took it since both ended early.

    hmmm...I thought the Gatchaman listing ended with buyer aya***** winning it for 183,000 yen although I could be mistaken.

    I think that was the last Gatchaman talker that came up.

    Ive been quietly trying to get the V3 minis for the last 3 or 4 years. I have a few and getting one gives me alot of joy because they are wonderful and rare but expensive for mini's .... over the last couple of days a seller has been selling almost the whole set, cool I can add one or maybe 2 more to my gang

    BUT NO :cry:

    Same buyer dropped about 3 grand and hogged them all - at sucker prices - HA enjoy them
