I finally found a site thru MH on the rise and fall of my most favorite Robots the Space evils. Now if only another one will appear on the short lived Space doom ones. The site can be viewed thru Metalhouserobots.com :D

The last color from MH in the evils were the green ones. I would love to see an all white or orange Space evil made soon. Perhaps in a limited run of 50 . :)

The release date for them was 12-03-07. By 2009 they stopped because of high production costs. They were very well made and it is always fun looking for the hard to get colored eye ones. For myself it took some time locating them. They have that great looking black/brown body color to them.I always wondered why not a green eyed version added. :)

They started to release a few in very nice body colors like this Burgundy with chrome neck and arm rings along with chrome eyes they sold out very fast since only 70 were ever made. This was one of only 2 models that had silver boots :)

The time the Burgundy model came out MH Bliking released a limited powder metallic blue with red eyes. Later on the same version came out in silver eye version. They also released a jet black version with chrome eyes and ring collars. The powder with red eyes and the Black version are very hard to find today. :)

Towards the end of 2007 two more colors were added. The bright red evil with silver boots and another colored shade of yellow for the eyes not the same as was for the Horikawa Blk/brown version. And a bright enamel blue finish with red eyes and boots. They had begun to add interesting colors for the new market. The cost was still over $100.00 to buy but they were built and painted very well and ran strong. :)
