Toy Hunting in Japan


A couple pals of mine went to Japan this week and while I was unable to join them, they did the next best thing and took photos of everything they could while toy hunting. Here are just a few samples...


Japanese live action Spider-Man had a car and a killer robot, which seems to be a pricey item.


There was more Ultraman than you could shake a stick at, which is fine by because I LOVE Ultraman.


Wind up robots are a place I dare not go...

Keyop!

 
This whacky Thor is actually an American Toy


If Jack Kirby was replaced by Robert Crumb.

A whole store dedicated to American pop culture.


This store was all vintage Star Wars, I'd love to see this in person.

Check out (and please like) the PlaidStallions Facebook page for dozens more.

Satin Monster: Superfly Edition



Presenting the latest release from Odeon Toys, Satin Monster: Superfly Edition. I've brought him back by popular demand but this time he's wearing authentic 70s wear that has been featured on PlaidStallions.

I based this one off the "Maxi" an outfit I actually owned.


Each Superfly Edition Satin Monster comes with a Can and real platform boots.



Ladies not included but will likely appear....

The first 8 are available now, more later. Get 'em over at my Mego Museum Mall Store.

Winnie the Weeble



While working on the Little People list, I came across this piece and really had no idea it existed. I never had weebles as a kid but as a Winnie the Pooh fan, this would have been welcome.

Bubble Funnies


My friend found these while we were on a flea market run and I gotta admit I was totally envious. I haven't thought of these bubble gum and mini comic book combos in 30 years but seeing them just made me happy. 

I now have to track down every one of these and Chu-Bops (the record album version of these) as well.


I bet the gum tastes terrific...

Colouring Book Theatre: Six Million Dollar Man


The Six Million Dollar Man: Coloring Book By Saalfield  (1975), 
         I've done Six Million Dollar Man books before by Saalfield, but I always enjoy another dip into the Bionic Craze.

Colouring books are usually a mixed bag depending on what reference materials they give the artist, this may be the first time I can accurately deduce exactly what the artist had to work with.


Grab your crayons and beam down me after the jump

The Top Ten Fisher Price Little People sets




If you're a kid of the 1970s, chances are the sight of the limbless cherubic Fisher Price Little people will bring a smile to your face.

These simple (and indestructable!) toys were the deserved kings of the preschool aisle during the polyester decade


Here are the top ten Fisher Price Little People Sets:





10) Sesame Street Clubhouse
Ok, so there was never a clubhouse on Sesame Street, nobody cared because this set was jam packed with features like a trap door, revolving door and a tire swing. Not to mention interesting graffiti professing David's love for Maria, which must make Luis crazy to this day!

I've joked about the Bionic Video Center in the  past but there is no way as a kid that I wouldn't have wanted this.  Steve is reliving his glory days, he needs a six pack.
