Very nice package indeed, Rei.
A lone Shempuvian in the stoney wilds:
Can't say that he was happy about being photographed, but I told him that if he wanted to stay, that was the deal.
The Tokay folk never sleep, at least that's what they'd like you to believe.
A Mego-ish '40s Dick Sprang Hasbro, and an anime Ogon Bat custom, done up in the finest dimestore-Mego-knock-off style.
Bill Finger Bats was just hanging out for the shoot.
That Ogon Bat is amazing!
I somehow missed this wonderful box o' goodness when it was first posted, so belated congratulations on a top notch care package. Hope you are enjoying your new dollies, and that they are getting along with the extended family. Hat tip to @kichigai for putting together such a delight.
I designed the header card, I plan to make the antique era OB from the 1930's in April 2019. I have one of these Ogon Bat Mego type dolls left over after the show ended here in Pittsburgh, any takers please hit me via PM, the retail is $45.00 + postage
I only made 5 of these but may make another batch next year for Mego meet. Still figuring out the Dimestore formula for Gigantor and Capt. Harlock Mego style plus some other Tokusatsu too. Dimestore fodder was my jam in 1970's, I was fortunate to live near several including Alan's Toyland, Woolworth, GC Murphy and the cheap rack toys always appealed to me more than other toys.
The aesthetic I was going for was as if this was in a Japanese Train Station Toy or Candy shop novelty Toy sold back in 1978. They came out pretty well, I look forward to making other characters and foes at some point. The items used including the soft vinyl head, body and costume are all high grade Mego reproduction parts.
Dept. of Unexpected Hauls:
Spent the holiday with a friend of mine, and apparently her stepmom raided an old Amazon wish list that I'd forgotten about:
Hurray for surprise toys and commix under a tree! Consider me fully in support of second marriages.
Grant Morrison, Fantagraphics, Doctor Octopus, Twilight Zone, Pin Mate, Mates, knob! Doctor Who, Cyberleader, reMego, Mego, Bif BAng Pow!
My girlfriend got me a new horn mug and .... an otamatone. I'm pretty pumped about those. I can't wait to annoy the dog even more now.
This actually showed up a couple weeks ago, but I got this Strandbeest kit via ebay straight from the factory in China (crazy how you can do that now). Fun evening build. The creepy sound is me blowing on the propeller to make it walk.
This was so nicely done.
Girlfriend came home the other night with a Brita filter pitcher. I just kinda brushed it off like "Oh boy yeah...yeah that's great. Good job, babe".
How naive and simple I am. I just made a pot of coffee using water from the pitcher.........WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE? My god. My mouth doesn't feel like it's getting bombarded with iron supplements.
So you hyperventilated and passed out after 16 seconds?
Actually, a very cool model - amazing that all the joints work so well given it is molded plastic.
