New Bot Day! Raideen (勇者ライディーン) hails from 1975 Japanese tv. Like many of my bots I first encountered him in the Philippines. When I saw the Shogun Warriors back in the States I was happy they brought him over but mystified why they changed the spelling of his name to Raydeen. I picked up this superdeformed rendering of him at Q Pop Shop @qpopshop in Little Tokyo. #Raideen
SPACE BATTLE SPACE ROBOT was too tall for the collection, regrettably. Pretty good for a drugstore robot though. I believe I’ve made it clear I’m always low key robot hunting. Thankfully the rules for collecting are strict and I’m picky.
Blast From The Past in Burbank sure has some fun stuff for the middle-aged toy nerd. I walked out with the fellow on the left: Getter Liger. A late birthday gift to myself and quite nice. I already have an Iron Giant and for the price that little Cylon didn’t bowl me over. Such nice things!
