Strange Toys I Have Known:
Sole of Godzilla’s Gang

March 4th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Godzilla's Gang

A while back I brought Nokogirin and Godzilla’s Gang to your collective attention. What I didn’t mention is that Nokogirin was not the only of the series I’d managed to round up. Minus the eponymous member, I have managed to “collect them all!”™

Yes, we have Nokogirin – we have Nokogirin today!

Nokogirin

The Japanese have some fascinating bugs on their islands, thus it is no wonder these startling and wonderful animals would figure to a noticeable degree in their sci-fi and fantasy.

Redking (giant size)

Redking

(click through for variations)

Ah, Redking, foe of Ultraman and your brother and sister monsters alike. Oh, Redking: you of the wobbly head and snarky disposition. Yes, Redking – so called because of your utter lack of red coloring (at least in all the initial incarnations). Hey Redking, where you goin’ with that tower in your hand?

Strange Toys I Have Known – No Means Mr. No

September 17th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards

Mr. No

A long time ago, when I was just getting into Japanese toys (and still had things like Spawn figures in my collection – *shame!*) I ran across a doll from Xebec toys (a branch of Kaiyodo)  called “Mr. No”.

Piping the Dwarf

Don’t worry, kids. I’m not going to kill you!

Piping der Zwerg – I can only assume it’s not pronounced “Piping,” as in “who’d like a plate of piping hot dwarf?” but “Pipping.”

Hopps the Frog

Hopps the Frog and his hypnotic, acid-eyed stare.

Hopps der Frosch – the frog – is another in a series of often naked-but-for-their-shoes advertising characters from the German shoe-maker, Salamander AG.

Part of a group of six vinyl toys, Hopps is described as leader Lurchi’s best friend, curious, cheeky, and adventurous. Given what I’ve seen from the rest of the group’s sculpts, Hopps is actually *less* cheeky than most of the others … but maybe they weren’t referring to his rump.
