GI Joe Talking Astronaut in action! This is one of the harder talkers to find, and has different lines from the other Adventure Team talkers. Mine looks like it has been restrung, but the sound quality is decent and I can find all of the lines if I fiddle with it. The sound is a little muted through the suit, but the suit is too fragile to remove unless I have to. #gijoe #adventureteam #astronaut #talkingastronaut #onesixth #osr #talker #talkingtoys #vintage #toys #actionfigures #space #spacesuit #mercury #gijoeat

Microman Mighty Suit 1 arrived today!  The Mighty Suits are crazy suits of armor that actually clip on to Microman figures.  They are fiddly and complex, but they look great.  Classic early 1980s Takara sci-fi when they were just figuring this stuff out. #Takara #Microman #mightysuit #Micronauts #powersuit #powerarmor #toys #actionfigures #sfland #Japan #Japanesetoys

Astronauts then and now. In the silver, a vintage GI Joe Talking Astronaut in space suit based on the Mercury program suit that was current at the time.  In black, Isobelle Pascha from ThreeA.  My GI Joe Talking Astronaut’s suit is a bit warn and has the wrong boots, but he still talks perfectly! #gijoe #adventureteam #astronaut #mercury #space #spacesuit #talkingastronaut #ThreeA #3a #Isobelle #Pascha #onesixth #sixthscale #osr #toys #actionfigure

Evangelion Unit-02 from Medicom’s Real Action Hero line.  This is the Rebuild redesign of Unit-02 that debuted in Evangelion: 2.0 You Can(not) Advance.  I have to admit, this is my least favorite of the redesigns.  The white bits make it too busy, and the oni horns are a bit goofy, especially when Asuka isn’t Japanese or anything.  Still, it’s the most posable toy of 02 ever made, and that glossy red is so nice. I wish Medicom would do a version with the flight gear and a big crazy flight display stand for her fight in free fall. #evangelion #medicom #rebuild #rebuildofeva #realactionhero #mecha #mechaunion #toys #actionfigures #asuka #unit02

Microman Punch Robo!  I picked this guy up on the cheap and ended up enjoying him more than I expected.  It’s very much a 70s robot as opposed to the later Micro robot stuff in the 80s. I dig the chrome chest plate with the cockpit frame for where I Microman can sit.  It reminds me of the cockpit set view from Power Rangers. #microman #micromanpunch #punchrobo #takara #sfland #robits #robots #mecha #mechaunion #toys #actionfigures #japan #japanesetoys

PRHI Toys at Super Robots Giant Monster part 5- Blockman Release and Armor Teaser

srgm-block-09

The first Microman scale Blockman release debuted at Super Robot Giant Monster as a last minute addition.  I have reworked these guys a bit to be easier to assemble, and can now print them in color!  The Blockmen available were printed in three or four colors with Monster Kolor chromed silver accents.  They also included as weapon for the first time.

The first set of Blockman armor was also on…

Working on a review of the new Arcadia YF-19 1/60 scale perfect transformation toy from Macross Plus.  I like variable fighters with model numbers that end in nine.  #macross #macrossplus #yamato #arcadia #variablefighter #macrossseven #macross7 #vfx #mecha #japan #japanesetoys #toys #robits #robots #toyslagram #mechaunion
