    Thank you XVivaHateX for the imformation, I've seen the same header card in other Pachi figures, if you look closely they use the same body of the bootleg Lion Maru.

    Lovely! I am guessing it is a bootleg, both from construction and design, as well as not seeing an obvious mark anywhere. I think I love this rocket car version even more than the usual trike, which is setting a high bar already. Really fun toy, and actually, not that expensive.

    I really like the sculpture of the head and the detail of the front sticker on the car .
    I think the only bad thing I see it, is that apparently the steering wheel is broken:(

    Yeah, I noticed this right away too, but looking at it, I think I almost prefer it this way (I mean, in an unbroken sense). It gives it a better rocket ship-esque appeal, I like the more sleek, unconventional design in that sense, and also simultaneously - though this might seem like a contradiction - makes it more kid-like in play and imagination. I also feel that the full wheel is a bit overpowering to the vehicle proportions, as well as TM's hands 'n arms. So, while completely unintentional, there might be some lessons in there for toy/car designers. :razz:

    Agreed, the Condorman is fantastic. Even if I care so little for boxes, I would happily shell out the money for a wonder like that, if I had it. Missile-firing is one of my favourite versions, and I haven't seen him with the gloves either. A real gem to pick up for the right collector.

    Wow, Grace - I don't think that any of us will ever get to the point where we don't see a toy that we're wholly unfamiliar with from time to time... what a stunner! Too bad it took me this long to meet this magnificent beast. Who want's to school me on it's origins?

    Among its many virtues, it looks as though it could be Yamomark's mission statement!

    Alas, I've been wanting to adopt this fishy monster for some time. Nice ones are very pricey to be sure! :x
    He is Okozeruge, Demon Fish from the deep sea, from Barom 1. The toy above was made by Bandai in the 70's. Bandai made some whopperly good Barom 1 toys--the villians are really nifty looking. Okozeruge, is from Choujin Barom 1 TV show, Season 1, Episode 1, "Demon Fish of the Deep". Yep, found it!
    http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesid=227701&seasonid=411321&id=3595281&lid=7

    He's modeled after the stonefish, Synanceia:

    Stepping on one of these beauties while diving or cavorting in the deep, is nasty business! Their spines are poisonous and they have nasty venomous stings. Dance carefully, if you see one of these fat cuties.

    Very interesting... I didn't know that was the model for the Barom-1 character.

    What in the world is this? A boot? a rare nitto? A marusan reissue?

    Is it wrong that I would enjoy snuggling with that Gamera doll? Raspberry spray on the back is fantastic over that green.

    Wonder what the original cost of these were? I was interested in one for years but figured shipping would be insane from Japan since it's so big.

    Thank you for sharing this Roger! I totally missed it! :oops::oops::oops: The toy is so detailed, but very pricey :x. I wonder what these originally sold for? I've seen a few of these come up for auction, they've gotten more expensive as time goes by :x Really nice!:shock:

    Bullmark Flying Squirrel, from Lion Maru. Ended at 14000 JPY, a relative "steal". Meant to bid but forgot :x.

    That would be a first issue Nitto from the 60s before the changed the color on his shell to orange in 71.
    Another one that was heavily paint worn sold for 75,000 a few months ago
