Action figures - Space Pirate style !

Harlock, Tadashi and Key, Takara, Japan, 1978

Takara and Takatoku were the 2 toymakers in Japan that followed the original line of Captain Harlock toys. Here are the 3 Takara action figure toys that were made at that time. Each one came with detachable belt and pistol(s) - and harlock had a fabric cape. As a collector, I like these blisters a lot because they have a "sliding" bubble and could be opened and closed again after play (why don't my Star Wars figures have blisters like that ?). Each figure also came with plastic stand.
