Show off your coolest non-Macross toys & models

Recommended Posts

I was checking out my newly-acquired Artmic Bible and damn there is some cool mecha in there. I especially like the stuff from Megazone and Gall Force, but I have never seen any kits for those shows for sale anywhere. So I thought, why not ask the guys on Macross World?

If you have pics of your non-Macross mecha, I'd love to see them. Toys, models, whatever. I'm dying to see what you got.

Gunbuster! Those look pretty sweet. I bet they are rare, since ebay & hlj both have nothing like those.

Gasaraki! I like those mechs (not surprising since the mecha designers worked on Mospeada, BGC, Patlabor, and Gundam collectively). Unfortunately I watched two eps of the show and couldn't take any more.

I will post some images as soon as I can get attachments to work! Is there a temporary problem at the moment or am I missing something extremely obvious? :huh:

Edit: Mods, please remove. Worked it out for myself - replace user and insert new brain! :p

Heres one of my all time favourites - the Big Dai-X DX, from X-Bomber/Star Fleet. Believe or not, hes a Valkyrie cousin - by Takatoku! (and it even transforms, too!).

I wouldn't mind seeing those toys re-engineered with modern tech...

What is that little MOSPEADA ride armor in front of the blue Legioss? I thought I owned all the ride armor toys but I can't put a finger on that one. Can you provide a closer pic of it??

A former high school pal of mine actually made a construction paper model of the Maddox, as there was never any model or toy built.

I think the model, which is years old now, still resides at Puzzle Zoo in Santa Monica, CA.

Here is the only completed science fiction related model I have of a vehicle. Although it is not Japanese made, the series itself is still very popular in Japan. Five cookies to the person who can identify the ship and the show it is from. And no cheating!

They made a resin kit of the MADOX-01, I've seen it in the back of old Hobby Japans.

Hiya! THAT little dude is the Gakken 1/20 scale diecast Ride Armor. No articulation to speak of except in the arms, head and knees. Still nice for a display piece. According to the box art, there's 2 more in the series, I think, the other 'standard' suit and the Fuuke-type. Bought it in HK back in '02. Here's a closer shot next to the 1/20 scale 'Studio Nue original design' Powered Suits by Kaiyodo:

Thanks! That 'jeep' is the original 1/55 scale 'Kanzen Henkei' (Full Transformation) MUGEN CALIBUR by Takatoku Toys. The molds were sold/adapted by Takara/Hasbro to create the TF Roadbuster. Calibur's sister, the 1/55 Ovelon Gazette attack 'copter became the TF Whirl (both TFs lacking the pilot figures in the cockpits.) The 1/55 Dorvack toys are excellent Real Robot toys, although sacrificing articulation for sturdier transformation.

I loved the design so much I actually made a custom olive drab "grunt" version of the Calibur from a cheap Roadbuster I picked up. Someday, I'll do the same for the Gazette! :-)

It's the Mugen Calibur from Dorvack and no, it's not very articulated and neither is the Transformers version "Roadbuster". Still, my favorite Transformer of 1985 and I actually prefer Roadbuster's color scheme.

Damn Drifand... I love your collection, but I think that's only because you buy every crap out there, according to that last thing... :lol:;)

Actually, I've slowed down a lot, toys-wise. Job realities and lack of space force me to be more selective. e.g. I gave up on the 1/12 Scopedog and DX Aquarion for various reasons. If a toy candidate doesn't meet my own, very personal criteria for details/quality/fun/value, it's out. Certainly helps to prevent accumulating stuff I wouldn't care about after the honeymoon is over. :-)

No need to cheat but Black Valkyrie got there ahead of me! This one probably isn't such a mystery for UK-based MWers as going by previous threads here we seem to have got a lot more of Gerry Anderson than the US. Incidentally, this year is the 40th anniversary of Thunderbirds.

F.A.B!

So that’s how that series was called! I really liked that show; it had a very nice covert ops thing going on. I even liked the strange vehicles, specially the Srungle.

GO SRUNGLE!! :D

The figures on the right look an awful lot like the armor used in the short-lived OVA adaptation of "Starship Troopers"! I have a bootleg video of the 4 ST episodes produced way back, maybe picked up at Magnum Opus Con 3? Can't upload, no hardware or I'd post.

Unfortunately, as far as anyone knows, the Blowsuperior and Fuke type were never released. No one has ever seen one :)

I think we can all agree that Major Kusanagi's body is by far the sexiest mecha ever produced.
