Does anyone know a good place or person that sales repro parts/weapons for jumbo machinders?
Im pretty sure KR knows.
Does that "machindershop" user group-thing still exist?
Well, if not, this is absolutely a TBDX question, as all the hardcore (active) Jumbo collectors and customizers are there.
Check your PMs.
Still looking for some repro rockets for Mazinga Z. Any help would rule!
i just need a godzilla fist. I'm thinking of getting one sculpted holding a train then cast in resin.
^^ That actually sounds genius to me!
A bit incongruous with the rocket punch gimmick though...
hi guys...looking for Jumbo ZZ parts. anyone willing to part?
been selling jumbo repro missiles on ebay for the past few months...
we have to hand drill each individual missile which is a pain!
i need a delta wing missile for my late version raideen, been looking for months!
we're actually working on some
wow, quite an operation Kris...!
HURRY! wondercon is coming... j/k
well, allow me to be the first to grab some...that's awesome news! i'll leave the firing button intact now - was going to customize over it because i'd pretty much given up on ever getting my hands on them without buying a whole new MIB.
Very cool! I love seeing stuff like this!
we casted one already, but the marks and scratches from the original show. so we just gotta clean it up a bit
AWESOME...so it's the later version with the square notch?

is there any chance you'd release those within the next month?
i'm pretty sure i just peed myself a little...
i'd have to check, but i grabbed the one off my Popy Raideen with the bowfist..
i'll buy a couple either way, just to fill the space on him, but it would be so great if it fired...
mine's probably not the bowfist, which i think is earlier, if not first edition...(he's actually missing the left fist, which is fine because i'm kit bashing a custom arm), but it did not ever have the shoulder guards attached, so i'm pretty sure it's the final cheapo make of the raydeen. he's also missing one wheel truck and axle.
on the bright side, i paid about $1.50 for it at the thrift store...and got approached by 2 different people while holding it in the checkout line
The bowfist is obviously the original Popy, and only the first version Shogun (ALL the Shoguns had the bowfist replaced with the Mazinger Iron Cutter) used the original Popy launcher (circular hole on the Delta Wing).
atom gray, if you know you need the square hole version of the Delta Wing, it's from the later Shoguns...and the original won't work. :/
hmm that's odd.. i just checked my delta wing and it has that notch at the end.. and im pretty sure my raydeen is the popy version.. its shorter than the Mattel one if im not mistaken..
not surprising, there's a couple anomalies i've run across already trying to place this one as well. my wheel trucks are black snap-on, and according to wildtoy's page, they're only either molded on or screwed on. i can see on the bottom of the foot where it looks like they were molded in place, but the hole was never drilled.
i'll take a pic of the manufacture markings soonish, in the interest of science...
but, in any case, the firing pin IS square, so i figure the notched one is what i'm looking for...and as i said, i'll happily purchase the repro either way, just to get him looking complete.
I have 3 Mattel Raydeens including the first and last versions and they all have snap on black wheel trucks. I think only the popy raydeen has molded wheel trucks.
1.50 is a bargin !!
so...i'm guessing you don't have a bowfist in there anywhere?
do all of yours have the square firing pin with the notched missle???
aspiring minds want to know...!
Interesting! I'll ask around to see if I can dig up more info on these variations, but I'm pretty damn certain the Popy and 1st ver Shoguns had circular pegs. Can you take a photo of the side of the knee of your Raideen*? Weirdly, that geometry was changed in the later Shogun releases, so it's pretty distinctive.
[* By the way, it's probably more accurate to romanize his name as Raideen. It's pronounced rie-deen (think "rye bread"). I've noticed a lot of people romanize it as "Reideen" or "Raydeen", but saying his name like ray-deen (as in "ray gun") is incorrect.]
