Here’s Silverstreak that I purchased from Service Merchandise in 1984. Service Merchandise was a catalog showroom store where you looked through a catalog and you picked the item you wanted and they would bring it out to you, although for the toys, they were accessible on the shelves. I bought almost all of my original G1 Transformers from this store.

Behind Silverstreak is Inferno. I bought him in japan in 1985. Silverstreak is more often known as Bluestreak.

Deluxe Gundam MK-II Mobile Suit RX-78 1985

This one, I recall buying in a small toy store in Kyoto, Japan. This was my very first Gundam. I grew to love this series immediately as there were so many different mecha (compared to Macross). I don’t recall seeing the Zakus at the time but they may have been in the unfamiliar-to-me-at-the-time  or HCM format rather than a toy like this one. I have also placed its replacement – the 12″ Deluxe Nu Gundam from Char’s Counterattack next to it as comparison. I also have a small booklet that I purchased from Kinokuniya book store. I might also have a VHS tape as well. You can now watch episodes on Youtube.

Dinobot Grimlock Transformers G1 1985

Here’s one of my Dinobots. I have three of them. This one is the leader Dinobot Grimlock. I purchased these from Service Merchandise in 1984 that I have in my collection. I have since dusted off these robots…here he is cleaned up.

Here is my collection of Dinobots. I am only missing Swoop. I am still looking for a good used version of him. Most pieces I have seen have issues, so I still don’t have one yet.

Galatt DX Hicompact Model Jumbow 1985

This is a robot I bought on a trip to japan in 1985. According to my recently found notes, I purchased the Galatt DX for 13 dollars.  I wasn’t familiar with this series but I have seen some clips of him. It appears to be a spoof about the whole super robot genre as a whole. It was generally my practice to get pretty much any robot that I saw in a toy store (even if I didn’t know the series).

High Complete Model M100 Shiki MSN-00100 1-144 HCM 23 Z Gundam Japan 1985

This is the M100 Shiki MSN-00100. Bandai 1985 Made in Japan H. C. M. Series 23 This is the first HCM box I have seen with an actual date. I really like the design of this robot, but the color really doesn’t work for me. Maybe if this was more the color of a construction truck it would work, but this yellow is terrible. I am sure others feel the same, as this one really was not that hard to get and was relatively affordable(nobody wants it).

Yeah, I know it is almost the same as the last one, but this image is clearer and I am too lazy to take a new picture.

 

So these are the first pictures I took before I refined my technique a little. Still kinda sucky, I need to get a tripod.

The new pictures are a little better. They don’t have the yellow tinge.

Chogokin Jr Ninja Senshi Tobikage Kurojishi by Bandai 1985

 

This is a 5″ Chogokin Jr Kurojishi figure from the anime Ninja Senshi Tobikage. That appears to be this yellow lion robot. After a little search I found this ninja robot anime. I have watched a little of the first episode Ninja Robots in English dubs by Cartoon Network in 1995 and Japanese version from 1985 – 1986 on Youtube, but it looks like they stream it on Anime Sols. It might be worth watching, though I usually like the Japanese version as they will not edit out the violence.

I liked the bigger DX robots Tobikage & Houraioh, but not this little all plastic ST version. It does not earn the Chogokin Jr name as there is no diecast metal in this robot. I was trying to get the other figures in the series but only ended up getting this little one. This one looks cheap and clunky. There was not a lot of thought put into the build for this. It is pretty much just a brick except for a little arm rotation. Probably one of those cheap train station toys to shut up the kids. The Kurojishi toy and box reminds me a lot of the Victora Albegas  I have here. Sadly, I am afraid the thing I like most about this robot is the box.

Here is the opening for the anime tv show Ninja Senshi Tobikage from 1985-1986

Change Robo GC-28 by Popy Bandai 1985 aka Godaikin Machineman ST 1985

Think this is a reissue of the original Popy GC 28 which has a red shield. The five Super Sentai guys pictured on the cover kinda look like cops. They are from Dengeki Sentai Changeman. Even though I am not a fan of Super Sentai, I still like the robots. Change Robo is one of them. I try to only collect the 70’s and 80’s chogokin robots. I couldn’t fit the sword in the fist because it was so tight, but it was fun shooting the head off. The fists do not shoot off with much zing and the robot is a little light in die cast metal, but I really like this ST robot which fits in well with my Godaikin collection, but the DX robot looks really good too. My copy is missing the 5 little plastic Changeman Sentai figures.

Plastic Changeman figures from the Change Robo GC-28 by Popy Bandai 1985

The DX robot came out as a late release Godaikin in 1985 or 1986. Change Robo is pretty rare as Godaikins go. I have only seen him a few times on auction and lost every time. The ST is a Popy robot as it has the Popy label, though I did not know it at the time I purchased it. So it’s one of the only  two Popy robots I have.

The robot’s design reminds me a lot of Goggle V robot. It is a simple but solid design, that you can change into a decent looking jet, car and helicopter(the Jetchanger, Helichanger, and Landchanger). The only real difference between Goggle V and Change Robo is in color scheme. A few tweaks to the design & color and you would have Goggle Five which is a good thing. It is a lot like the Generation 1 Transformers that all used the same molds like Bluestreak, Smokescreen and Prowl . If I ever display these two, I would have to put them right next to each other.

Dancougar DX GoDaikin by Bandai 1985 aka Popy GC-30

The DX Dancougar is a solid piece, but I can’t say I love this one. I got it without the box. I should have held out for a boxed copy(though maybe I never would have picked one up). I will have to change this into the large robot one day and redo some of these pictures as my old iPhone really does provide the detail I would like to see in these photos. I keep forgetting. This one is like Abegas, but the robots are a little better. The largest robot is a decent piece and they didn’t forget to make sure there was some diecast metal. Sorry, I hate cheap plastic robots. Probably should get around to the better pictures for each robot and as one large robot. ***

I plan to add the ST Dancougar to my collection, but I haven’t seen it for a while. I will have to keep an eye out for it.
