    Nice. I've always really liked that guy on the left. I think the yellow version is my fav.

    Wanted to share some photos of my recently acquired Monster Parade set. I did some reading on them and they are recreations of some really cool old toys which had a mechanism in them which bobbed their heads up and down when wound up. These recreations by Zollmen/Medicom don't have that same mechanism in them, but they do have the amazing boxes with such cool artwork! The originals appear to be insanely expensive and rare... you can own them for just 1,500,000 yen?!

    I was curious how the original's worked and found a video showing one of them in action:



    Anyway, here are some photos, with more in the "spoiler":

    That pachi head-bobber is nuts! Didn't expect it to move that slowly; if one can go for a long time I imagine it would be a little hypnotic. The Zollmen set looks beautifully-produced, as you might expect. Congrats on the fine new additions.

    Thanks! I was surprised how slow they move also, really great to see one of them in action!

    Awesome photos! :D
    Also, thanks for sharing the nodder video, that's pretty amazing! Perhaps it moves slowly because the motor mechanism is vintage. It's pretty risky winding that toy! Would be a very expensive "breakage", but nonetheless, a great video! :D
