Post what are these japanese vinyl toys??
hi I am new to the forum and I joined because I received a bunch of these Japanese vinyl toys from my uncle. he was a big collector of all different things. I have 30 of these toys (some are doubles and some are actually the same one, I just added them to the display before taking that picture). the writing on the packaging is all in Japanese (I think?) and it says "Rainbow" on there too. I looked online and found something called Rainbow Barom that seems to be what these are, but I would like to know more about them such as what they are from. any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

These are Barom-1 figures, and they're made by Rainbow. Someone with more knowledge of the characters than me can give you info about which characters they are.

John's just trying to get some info on these toys guys, not find out how much they're worth. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and not lynch him just yet. :)

Welcome to the board John!

These are worth like a few bucks each, I'd do you a favor and take them off your hands for 50 bucks.

On the top shelf, far right, that's not a Japanese figure. That's a toy by Gary Taxali.

If I recall, he was asking about how much these figures go for before he edited.

I am actually not looking to sell anything in my collection. I just know nothing about these toys because they were given to me when my uncle moved out of his house and started selling all his stuff. I am curious to know if they are from a Japanese TV show or something, just any info about them really. I am aware the toy in the top right is not part of the set it is just up there on display. there are a few other things I am not sure where they are from. they might have been custom made for him. (sorry for the picture links I don't know how to just include the pics). let me know if anyone knows anything.

I know the guy on the left in the first picture is from something im just not sure what

A boardie called M.A.R.T.A. did a series of reviews on the Rainbow releases that I found very helpful.

Click here to see them @ Kaiju Lab!

As you might have noticed, prospectors and speculators aren't terribly welcome around these parts.

Otherwise... Welcome!

There is an official introductions thread that you might want to search for and post in.

Funny, because that's exactly what he was asking about before editing the post.

goodnight Johnboy.

originally yes I did ask the value of these figures. they were handed down to me and I knew nothing about them. I have never owned anything like this before and I could see that everyone here has lots of experience with this kind of stuff. I wanted to find out everything I could about them and if they were valuable so they wouldn't end up at a garage sale in the future for $5. the reason I asked was for my own informational purposes only, I never had any intention of selling anything I post. and yes I did edit my post because I didn't want people to get the idea that I was here to advertise this collection as a sale, which is what I think most of you thought.

Just as a last word on identification, in addition to the excellent group photo PlasticXO did which Kevin posted, he also compiled a great database listing all the characters. I think there may be some that were released since the last update, but it is still an incredibly useful resource.

this definitely seems a little out there, but I guess that's what people would say if they watched the show Power Rangers over in Japan. it seems to be pretty similar.

a person dressed up in tights with a helmet fighting all these weird monsters that come from a main bad guy? sounds the same to me only this show is 1 good guy and not a bunch.
