    Where’d you score the Gakken Beta?  

    I found it on France's eBay site. I searched under Lansay Gakken. Since I had just found out that the Beta's production had been initially canceled. That is until Lansay was able to work out a deal and sold them in France. 
    The seller had the Beta and Alpha listed and I was able to work out a deal for both. I did end up spending a lot less than the current American eBay prices.
    I had a little doubt that this deal was real and maybe it was too good to be true. But I can say that I did get lucky and am fortunate enough to be one of those that has one now.

    There is a rumor that a blue, red and green pre-production models are out there and were "Made in Japan" 

    Since I do have a 3d scanner, and a 3d printer, I will most likely end up scanning the Beta and printing a Red and Green one to pair with the ones I have. The red one is missing the head, and the green one has really loose joints. But I'll figure that out when I cross that bridge.


  2. I was at Frank and Sons Saturday. I saw them and the price was way too high.

    I just got the gakken Alpha and Beta for a lot less than that vintage ride armor on the left. 

    I am still on the hunt for red and green 2 packs.

    Those are very nice scanners. I considered getting one, after less expensive desktop models didn't work as well as I wanted them to, but then decided I wanted to be able to scan both small and large items with maximum flexibility. To get something like that from Einscan would cost $$$$, so I went the DIY route. It's been an enjoyable project, minus the occasional technical issue that I have to resolve.

    I was fortunate enough to be able to get a tax break for it since I got it for work.

       I am looking looking for the Henshin Robo, Gakken toys from the 80s. 

    Specifically the cyclones and alpha combo packs.

    Any help or leads is appreciated
