September 26, 2013 8:17 am Published by Leave your thoughts

bargainstotreasures is selling a super rare Gorilla Biscuits X Super7 figure. This exclusive army green figure was only available at Comic Con 2009. The figure is a nod to the vintage G.I.Joe figures of the 70’s. Not many of these were made, so when you find one you got to snatch it up. The figure also comes in a custom footlocker with wrap around artwork. Happy Bidding.


Devilman Vinyl Toy Sofubi Solid Green Figure

September 8, 2013 7:08 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

I don’t know a whole lot about this Devilman figure. That is why I’m quoting jub*jub directly. “This auction is for an exclusive solid green variant of the Devilman vinyl toy figure produced for the 40th Anniversary of the 1st appearance of Go Nagai’s “Devilman” character back in 1972 from the Japanese Anime of the same name. The figure itself is about 4″ tall and comes with thin red wings that fit onto a clip on the back of the toy. The Devilman “mask” is also removable, revealing Akira’s face underneath as seen in the last image which is stock. Note that the figure in the auction has never had it’s mask removed as it was originally shipped this way. Also note that the wings themselves are slightly cracked in the center about halfway through as indicated in the 2nd image that show the back of the figure. IMO this was due to the fact that these figures were packaged fully assembled, meaning the wings were attached to the figure. It still displays nicely and as you can see from the pictures it is difficult to see this hairline crack, but it is definitely worth mentioning. A bit of background on this particular figure, nine toy/clothing labels in Japan had an exclusive colorway (color/opacity variant) of this toy for sale near the end of 2011 to celebrate the anniversary the coming year. The toys were blind bagged (in a generic opaque bag to conceal which variant it was) and bundled along with a t-shirt whose designs were also unique to the particular label. I received this solid green variant when I purchased the “MackDaddy” Devilman shirt designed by Japanese artist Tenga One, which I am selling in a seperate auction. I am the original owner and I purchased this directly from a japan retailer when they were initially released. This variant of the toy was unique to MackDaddy but randomly distributed along with both the painted variants and the more common opaque black variant that were spread across the 9 different labels. These toys were difficult to acquire to begin with and expensive considering that you were also paying for the shirt and had to factor in overseas shipping along with the currency conversion for the final cost. In addition to that if you wanted a particular version you risked the chance of not getting it since they were blind bagged and randomly bundled. Here’s your chance to pick up just the solid green unpainted vinyl figure by itself, which is great if you weren’t interested in paying more for the t-shirt. Plus you now have the opportunity to purchase the exact version you want considering that these were blind bagged/random, and this particular variant was only available from 1 of the 9 different labels.”

Hasbro were smart when it came to marketing their toys. They took the mail away concept from cereal companies and changed it. GIJOE’s came with points that could be clipped from the packages and mailed away for exclusive figures or vehicles. ramessesgreat is selling a mint Steel Brigade figure from 1989. The figure comes complete with back pack and an embroidered patch.

cwaldron1 is selling a rare Steven Spielberg Lego set from 2000. My parents actually bought me this for my 20th birthday. Talk about about loser. This was the first time Lego included a digital camera and editing software to make movies. The resembles a Hollywood Film Lot with custom back drop and movie props. Spielberg really went all out for kids on this. I’m missing the camera, otherwise my set is complete. My brother and I use to make stop motion movies with Street Fighter II figures. That’s what we used the camera for.

I pick up these Hot Wheels Rrrumblers made by Mattel in the 70s when I come across them. I actually pulled this same rider seller cushon has listed out of a box of junk for $3. The local flea market can be rewarding. As you can see this one is proving to be pretty popular.
