The Lab


Well, you knew this would be there sooner or later... The hiding place of the greatest robot of all time ? Check. One of the more elusive toys on my wanted list ? Check. It's plastic and metal and has it all : retractable tower, laser guns, spring loaded missiles, secret compartments... and the smallest version of Grendizer and Spazer I have in my collection...





Grendizer base (PA-63), Popy, Japan, 1979

Obscure French Spaceman ?

Spaceman with missile launcher, Hugonnet, France, 1970's ?

Does anyone have more information about this toyline ? ("Série FERAL") Looks cool - and this one has a cape ressembling the ones on the Gatchaman figurines from CEJI. (merci à Utopia !)

Spectreman

Spectreman Sofubi, Masaduya ?, 1970's, Japan

This was one of the many series that followed San Ku Kai (Message from Space) on the french TV. With a rather important ecological message - do not polute (like the enemy apemen did...)
