New UFO?

I've got no problem with the storylines or feel of the series; as you rightly point out, Crash, some episodes are superb slices of SF. My "dated" comment was directed at the "look" of the series - the 70s imagining of what the 80s would be like; its probably unavoidable but it might well put some pe...

My Dai X Just arrived from Japan

After asking the experts at Toybox DX, it seems that the reason some X-Bomber toys were packaged in such a manner is that they were sold at "train kiosks" - small retail outlets at Japanese railway stations - and it was done to minimise the amount of space boxed toys would take up.

Wow! Dai X Look-a-like!

Hmm, not having much luck looking for images; it wasn't their similarity to any part of Dai-X I was thinking about; its more that they're such a clever piece of design (one review, apparently when translated, accused Bandai of - how can I put this? - "showing off"!) that I doubt any form of combinin...

My Dai X Just arrived from Japan

The green one is a new one on me, as well! I've just dug up the packaging for mine and I'd completely forgotten that although it did come in a cardboard-headed bag, the box was folded up inside, complete with toy catalogue inside! Seems that it was indeed re-packaged at some point as some kind of pr...

My Dai X Just arrived from Japan

Bet you're enjoying the little guy! I have a rather battered one - I was so excited to actually find a Dai-X toy that I didn't check the condition too much. I always thought that the ST was boxed (though mine came with a card bag that suggested it was some sort of fairground prize) though...?

Wow! Dai X Look-a-like!

Have you ever seen the transforming feet on the Soul of Chogokin Gunbuster that Bandai did? A company that can do those - in all seriousness, the neatest bit of transforming toy part design I have ever seen - would have no problems with LegTrak...

New UFO?

Its dated horribly now, and the acting is often widely panned (though there some impressive performances, especially the original "Mr. Angry" commander, Straker), but its still worth a watch if you can catch one of the better episodes. The effects work, needless to say, is top-notch for the time.

Return of Future Space Tank.

Although I think it appeared on every single Christmas list I ever wrote, I somehow never managed to acquire a Starbird. It always got shunted down in favour of something else. This was back when mail-order catalogues had a toy section that took up a third of the book and you wanted every single thi...
