Last year while chasing down variants of the mechaterror windups, I knocked off two bird(catcher)s with one stone; getting the gold variation Birdcatcher and the Dayglo DORORON ENMAKUN windups in one Pushead lot on eBay.
Both where released at Superfestival 24.
I have all of the regular releases now (plus an accidentally purchased bootleg) of the Mechaterrors, plus a few hand spray paints. Nice and Smooth.
I’ve been looking for this one for quite a while; and after having sworn off any new toys until after December saw him on eBay. My hands were tied. Despite making a promise to myself to take a toy sabbatical I had to bid. This Mecha was the last remaining gap in my windup collection’s completion. I put in an offer and was thrilled that it was accepted.
It arrived today and was removed from it’s packaging shortly after this picture was taken. It’s now happily in the case with the other windups. Family portrait coming soon.
Oh and if any of you guys are bidding on a Stumpy GID on eBay right now… be cautious. The picture was taken from this blog without permission, so who knows what the condition of the figure is.
Happy New Year everyone, and as always, thanks for looking!
Sitting rolled up in my closet is a Swamp Sanda Kuwait print. It glows. Per usual with Pushead prints, it’s a nonstandard size so I have to have it framed. In the meantime….. bigger pictures! I’ve been embedding the images at a smaller size, since they can be blown up. But I’m liking the bigger inline images, as well as tagged photos (since I’ve seen my images on sale items on tumblr) so change isn’t a bad thing!
I was moving some stuff around in my display case (about to have to move to display case #2) last night, so I decided to snap a picture of the Mecha Terror Devil Man. I’m still missing the Superfestival 20 Version (green) version of this guy; anyone have one for sale?
Man, my pictures suck lately. I should use a tripod.
I’m about to be gifted with a lightbox to photograph my toys with; until then these not-so-great pictures will have to do.
Sanda Kuwait Mecha Terrors; Regular windup, hand paint, GID and Super Festival 20 Black and Blood edition.
I bought my first Mecha Terror windup at NYC’s Toy Tokyo shortly after moving to Philadelphia. I wasn’t really aware of the vinyl toy scene at the time; just wandered in after getting sushi and saw the Pushead BIRDCATCHER Mecha Terror windup. $9.99 later and it was mine. I left it in the package for years for no particular reason, all the while adding more of the series to my collection.
I’ve since added all of the basic colors, all but one of the variants (still need the Superfestival 20 Version Devil Man) and a few hand paints.
