JR 21 X-60 Space Rocket

Another one from my favorite line of space toys. This rocket transporter goes with the X-30, X-40 and X-50 of the same series (see here).

Unique design, cool mechanisms... what could a kid need more to go on a space mission?

Ultraman's wheels for rock-splitting action !

This is another toy coming straight from the Japanese universe of Ultraman (Ultraman Taro to be exact): behold the Bermider II tank ! (with wind-up key)

Looks like the Mole from the Thuncerbirds but on esteroids... and yes, the design of the box is way cooler than the design of the toys itself... but at least it has a spark mechanism behind an orange translucid panel at the back.

Bermider II, Bullmark, Japan, 1973
