    Thanks, man! Yes, the "twinkle" in his eye is a very detailed and beautiful flourish. That is a great notice, it lends a vacuousness to his gaze that I just love. The head sculpt is truly spectacular, but it is interesting to look at it from all angles and see that, indeed, it is a hand-sculpted item. It is asymmetrical in the protrusion of the eyes, but this is not evident from viewing head-on. I would also say that the "expression" - if that would be a good term - of the Nakajima sculpts is very engaging for me. They are enigmatic as they are quasi-Kewpie yet also have a sort of coldness that edges into the creepy . . . which obviously bloomed in Astro Mu 5. The Golden Garoga is another excellent example of the beautiful blend of cute and creepy that Nakajima's sculptors so brilliantly achieved. Nice to ramble about this, these designs mean so much to me. Cheers, Michael [​IMG]

    Thanks for the update Roger! Yep, that Magular was really tempting. Hope a Boardie was able to adopt him!

    Ended heart breakingly at 51399, just missed it. The seller's description said Earthtron had been hiding in the closet, not exposed to light. Beautiful paint and gold teeth (auction had tons of pics, but can't post very well from an ipad :x). Gorgeous critter!

    I also saw that auction, beautiful piece!
    It is in such good condition that seems to have been painted yesterday.

    Wow, that's in amazing condition. I always look at the vintage vinyls and wonder what they must have looked like new, on the shelf.

    I never noticed this before, but on the upper left Bullmark logo with text it says "(top) Kowarenai Omocha [Unbreakable Toy] / (bottom) Bull-Toy".

    I have the toy you are talking about. It is a collaboration between Itokin Park and Mirock Toy.

    Wonderful set of pendants ended at 21500 yen


    Any info on these cat toys would be very much appreciated! The auction description did not say who the manufacturer was, but "translated" description was, "WHAT Michael Soft Vinyl two dogs set time thing Makoto Kobayashi". A wiki search describes Makoto Kobayashi as a manga artist, and mentions "What's Michael?" as an orange cat named Michael, who has lots of adventures.
    Cat set ended at 11000--a bit above what I anticipated!

    "butt hole" seems to suggest a squeakie toy! :razz:

    Thank you for the translation Daniel! I wonder if unbreakable is an analogy to the word vinyl?

    a few more pics... A real stunner, you can definitely see the sheen on the surface. Ugh! :x:x:x

    @Alebrije
    So great to see the original header and insert artwork on that Jumborg A toy! A fantastic piece of bootleg-not-a-bootleg history, and just stellar toy besides. What a treat.

    @RudeBeast
    Damn, that IKB auction. A very amazing toy, but I'd happily open and play with a Hukkokudo repro; this kind of thing really can only go in some extreme toy display, store case, or museum/gallery.

    @Mr. Humphreys
    Stunning Earthtron!! :shock: Simply marvelous paint and condition as you mentioned. And not really such a bad price, that taken into account. I have really been after a vintage one for my collection too, so I am enthralled by the pics of this fella. Sorry you missed out this time, Grace, but hopefully another comes your way in due time.

    @scobot
    That is a hefty price for the Doublas mini to be certain. He is rare, and lovely though. I would love to see some current makers take on more repros or original minis though. We really don't get that many anymore, and outside of the Bandai KT guys and Yamanaya 'Bullmarks', there has been a real dearth of them.

    The art in the header card it´s amazing and I also enjoy the fact that it has the original price marked (500¥).

    @scobot Wow some hefty price tags on those auctions! Love that Doublas mini but that always seems to go for crazy prices. I was a little sticker shocked by the Popy clear Mazinger- but then again it's one of the harder ones to find and in bag always commands the extra tax. Glad I picked up this used one a few years back for 10000 yen (with at least arm and leg inserts still inside, because shits gotten pretty crazy in vintage world:

    Damn it- I miss my toys already (they are currently all packed up) :(

    That Kikaider ride is so much fun. I am always surprised when items like this get listed on an internet auction, but lovely to see. I sure hope he was adopted by someone willing to put in the time and money to do a proper restoration on him; he deserves looking as glorious as he once did. What a lovely thing to have, would be just perfect in a toy or tokusatsu theme museum.
