8" Metal Hyper Hero Real Action Doll Collection
« on: January 28, 2007, 04:57 AM »


  (clicky for big pic)

Yet another interesting line coming out of Japan.  These alloy metal figures are 8" tall and incredibly articulated.  Can't wait to see the first release -- Darth Vader -- in April!

They will probably very sturdy, but from that picture the realism looks to be between Hasbro and Sideshow in quality.
Hopefully they will have a nice assortment of characters and do at least a few well.  Come on Hammerhead!

This is really interesting.  I've got a weakness for 8 inch figures because I grew up playing with Mego figs.  I only stopped when Kenner came out with SW figs in 78.  Wonder how much it will be.

Blister.jp has the retail price listed at 13,440 yen so $110.00 US. Wholesale price is 11,420 yen or $95.00 US. Will have to wait to see if this will show up on HLJ or from RoBBy.jp.

For $110, I need it to look better than that.  That's my Medicom price point.  Hopefully some fool will flood the ebay market with these and they can be had for $60 or less.  :-X

HLJ updates with a preorder for the Real Doll Collection Darth Vader. $99.81 US or $117.95 CDN.

Preorder this item by Feb. 6 to get it for 5% off the regular price of 12,800 yen!

HLJ is the winner thus far & hopefully RoBBY.jp will be that!  ;D

Oops!  Hee-hee!

Can't I even reference the company, without linking to them?  Come on!

Anyway, sorry, Dale.  You're a real doll, you know that?
