    Tetsujin 28-go Soft 4 Set of the 1970s from the decades before the toy box
    I find a very varied set with some of my favorite characters, I think the price is not so bad considering you have 3 licensed figures and a bootleg.
    Went for: 48,800 yen

    Yet another repainted Bandai reissue sold for much higher than I expected:

    You can see the original vinyl color under the chipped paint on the foot:

    Skinny tetsujin-28 gigantor is amazing! Wish I could grab one to go with the larger M1-GO version.

    Whoa that's amazing! I don't think I've ever seen a Hawaii twin tail, let alone a bagged one. The colors both vinyl and spray are gorgeous.

    Twin tail has always been one of my favorite ultras. his shifty eyes make me lol. I'm eagerly waiting for a bagged middle size version to land on my door step any day now.

    Thanks for sharing.

    +1. Awesome toy. First time I have seen the Hawaiian version of this guy as well.

    Glad you snagged that MIB middle twintail Zach. Bagged middle sized Bullmarks aren't easy to find. It's one of my favorite middle sculpts....you'll love it.

    Twintails' definitely a winner. It is almost comical how happy he looks, even for a toy version of kaiju, and all of it is good. The bagged Hawaiian is really lovely, such a different paint style, unlike some of the other variants. Looking forward to seeing you bagged mini Zach - but no one better let me anywhere near these sealed up toys. :dam:

    Hidden base vinyl is a surefire path to joy every time.

    I know! Really nice bluey blue! I was watching the Neronga and Kamerking as well. One particularly, more than just curiosity ;) Thanks for sharing those auctions!

    That Neronga is really something special, you don't often see the gorgeous deep blue on that light vinyl. He is a great toy for sure.

    Ha, that Kamerking, Grace I was completely thinking of you immediately. Pricey, but very nice metallic copper paints on him, and less 'questionable' perhaps than the previous examples.

    Crazy load of Bullmarks. Given the damage to some, and that most are fairly common, it actually ended fairly high. I am guessing a possible few choice variants in the bunch (maybe an Enterprise Gomora?) attributed to the high attention to the grouping. I'll happily adopt the unwanted discards though! :)

    @Alebrije - Wow, now that is a treasure worthy of a museum. I love the artwork on the header card as well.

    You're right Mark, the art is great and also the publicity of the other figures. It's as if the headercard and the pamphlet had been printed yesterday.

    Did not see this auction so I can't speck to the damage, but there are Hawaii versions Pegila, Bemstar, and Alien Mefilas plus Enterprise versions of Neronga and Gavora.

    @Alebrije Thanks for sharing the photos of the Hawaii Twintail. I don't think I have seen this one before either.

    That is a gorgeous original Bullmark Ultraman, just stunning. I can't tell for absolute certain from the photos, but he looks absolutely mint, and just opened. I don't see a spot of non-original colouring or wear on him, and the applied paint is just nearly perfect. The packaging sort of back this up too, almost like he was once unwrapped, not cared for/about for whatever reason, and then packed away carefully and stored for the past 40-some years. A phenomenal piece for anyone and a gorgeous toy.

    Tokyo) Bullmark giant Godzilla Soft Vinyl
    Went for: 114,000 yen
    The first thing that jumps to the view of this auction is that the Godzilla is of a very opaque brown color and the eyes of a silver color, when generally they are gold or yellow. It also seems that the vinyl is a flesh color or a neutral color, hardly suseptible in any of the scrapes of the figure. Maybe the person who won the auction knows something that I do not know, because at first appearance it seemed to me that it was a flesh color bootleg of the 80's repainted.

    @Alebrije - Roger, I have seen a similar light/pale green vinyl on a Bullmark Giant:

    The vinyl color looks close to this rare green, but the paint style with the heavy brown and silver eyes seems quite different. I am not sure what it is.

    @deafmetal yeah the light green vinyl giant goji is quite rare and fetches serious coin; however I am thinking @Alebrije 's post is more tan or neutral base. But maybe I'm color blind, who knows. Thanks for posting that pic of the green base, that's a great example.

    I would love to see the light blue vinyl giant goji out in the wild that Yuji features in his book. That one is gorgeous.

    @Michael Beverage - It could be a flesh bootleg... I would be very interested in a closer look inside the joints. I also love that blue giant in the book. It's so striking compared to the brown and yellow vinyl versions. I dream of landing a green or gray giant goji some day.
