  1. First glance, I like a lot. Its got a retro anime feel and looks mean ! The sword, is it original to the figure or is that one of those cocktail swords ??

  3. The first thing that pops in my head when I look at this figure is Kupp from the vintage Transformers line. There is something therapeutic about that color scheme.

    1. I had Kupp displayed beside him for over a decade till Kupp took a nosedive and broke! i really like these colors and whats even better is that he is a beetle ,I probably shot have got a shot from the back so people could see that.

    1. Thanks lol! I got that sword the same night I bought him at a tiki bar. I was the only guy in the bar playing with toy robots :) He used to have a little umbrella that i kept with him as well bet it fell apart over the years.

    1. Ha That's awesome! Iv never know anybody else that owned him. I bought that guy in 1993 on my birthday at a strange little shop that was right next to a Tiki dive bar in San Francisco. At one point in the he ended up standing waste deep in a scorpion bowl.

I have one good pic my parents took of me picking out toys to buy with Christmas money.Im standing in the toy aisle holding the Demon Flyer to the Dragonriders of the Styx series and you can see a good selection of 1983/1984 toys on the shelve.
