Selling some stuff

03 June 2014 - 07:46 PM

I have a big purchase coming up, and I will be selling some robots to help finance it. Large and small robots. Go look at my collection pics and get with me if you see anything you want.

My Sears Bandai Fleet taking shape

15 May 2014 - 01:18 PM

Picked up a Sears Bandai Moon Mobile Rocket Launcher that needs a bit of restoration work, but happy to have it in any condition. Added that to the Moon Scout and the Arctic Explorer. I love all their stuff, it looks straight out of a Gerry Anderson show. Still seeking the Mobile Laboratory and the Area 5 Radiation Tester.

Their construction toys in this line are cool too. They made a great futuristic tin crane, a bulldozer and more. 


Inopportune timing-- sigh.....

Watched a launch gantry section for a Sears Bandai Moon Mobile sail by a couple days ago on ebay. I always wanted that toy but couldn't figure out what to do with the gantry only. So I didn't bid.  Then yesterday I find and win--you guessed it--a Sears Bandai Moon Mobile with a bent up gantry. Sigh. Had the auctions been in different order I would be in good shape. As it is, this one will hold a place in my collection until I find a better one. But since this is the first one I have ever seen for sale, it might be a while....  


New Metropolis Maria

28 March 2014 - 03:13 PM

For those on Facebook, a company that has been working on Metropolis false Maria items is showcasing their new full size robot during a live reveal, 4pm EST this coming Sunday. From the pictures, it looks like it will be a costume, as the original. Bettina, the daughter of Walter Mittendorff, original designer of Maria is consulting with the new sculpt. It is supposed to be the most accurate full size replica. Tune in and find out.

2100 Pioneer Saucer

25 January 2014 - 03:36 AM

I'm looking for one of these, so I guess this might end up in the wanted folder, but wanted to start it here so more folks could see it. It is the 2100 Pioneer Saucer, I presume it's Chinese, but perhaps late Japanese. I like it because of it is essentially the Flying Sub with a new paint scheme. If you have one I'd love to buy it.
