One more recent acquisition Perry has asked me to share:

Friction with spring-loaded, launchable saucer, 26" long, made by Yonezawa.

Anybody got the box?

This one really does qualify as "rare". Congrats, Perry.

​I see a form of 'batwings' behind the bubble, could the year for this be around '66 when Batman premiered?   Wonderful piece.   These scarce pieces always seem so much more beautiful than the main-stream items.  Could be they were too complicated or expensive to produce in great volume?

 

Thanks for posting these!

Good call on the year Morbius - this was introduced September 1966 as a new product.

These next three "samples" are from the creative talents of Mr. Uzawa and Mr. Sinji Miyazawa at Metal House.

Amazing, as usual. There are three variations there .

The Tomy b/o has proper legs instead of the stepover type

The Super Space Attacker is an unusual color combination

The Attacking Martian has what looks like a test shot head.

Could you tell us anything more about them?

The Super Space Attacker is usually in copper...I really like the test-shot head on the other.  Amazing stuff Perry.
