PostSubject: Some strange Japanese figures   Mon Jan 12, 2015 4:47 am

I just got more stuff from Japan to feed my collection addiction (thanks Brett!).

Among other things, a few Capsule Q Museum figures, some Capsule aquarium figures, a few Yujin figures, more of the Takara sharks (another 6-gill! Secret eating goblin shark! Broken peg for a frilled shark...) and some more Kaiyodo Marine Reptiles & Triceratops figures--including 2 of the 'rare' green version. Most of these came from a single bulk lot from YAJ, but the CapsuleQ and Capsule Aquarium ones came directly from Brett (other than the Pitta bird, only my second Kaiyodo bird figure...). The mudskipper was a figure I've tried to find for a reasonable price for a while now.

For the first time, I also received a few other Japanese things--some Kaiyodo(?) fighter planes, and two very strange toy animals:

The salmon is from Bandai, and comes apart. The turtle is stranger--when you squeeze the hind legs, the head and forelegs shoot forward.

It's not a bad figure overall, but quite weird. Has anyone seen anything like that before? Or the salmon?

Being an aviation enthusiast, I like those WWII Japanese "zero" fighters. Despite them being an enemy country at the time, the planes were very well built. Maybe from all the Boeing parts those planes contained. Laughing

They're neat planes, but I'll probably give them to my son and daughter for their shelves.

I might, however, re-appropriate the stands for animal figures!

Hold onto those planes, they're definitely relics of a bygone era. Very Happy

I think the planes are neat and all, but it's more my son's thing than mine.
