Takatoku outsourced to Taiwan


Recommended Posts

Here's something I was never aware of , never saw discussed - and I've been collecting this stuff since the 80s. Takatoku appears to have outsourced some 1/55 Valkyrie production to Taiwan. I got this one in recently. It's identical in design to the Japanese box, but does include an Obi and clearly says Made in Taiwan below the Takatoku logo on the front. The toy has the TT markings though the red paint shade is slightly brighter. The sticker sheet is a non-folded version. Instruction sheet is the same.

Does the toy have a made in Taiwan stamp also our just the box? I assume it does since you mentioned the brighter paint.

No, the toy just has the standard takatoku marks. I added pics of this and the unfolded sticker sheet and instructions to the top thread.
