Talking Mirrorman Re-issue
|Character Design||Eiji Tsuburaya|
Review by NekroDave
Mirrorman is one of the toys that was re-released by Masudaya that I really wanted to get. I like all the entries in the line, but getting characters that I didn't already have, or were never released, in Jumbo Machinder form seemed like the way to go. I'm a big fan of variety in my collection. It doesn't matter much to me if I've seen the TV show or anything like that. If it looks cool and I can add it for a decent price, I will. I grabbed this guy at Mandarake Nakano for about 3,500 yen if memory serves me well.
This one is a little bit bigger than the previously reviewed Kamen Rider V3, standing at just under 15" tall. This is actually one of the things that I do NOT like about this line of toys. There is no consistency to their size. I've only got about 6 of these things and they range in size from 12" to over 15". It's not a huge deal, but I prefer a bit of uniformity to the lineup. [Does that go against my previously stated love of variety?!:)]
Mirrorman is just like the others in the series, jointed at the hips, shoulders and neck with a pull-string on the back to make him talk. The head may look a little over-sized and the arms under-sized, but I think it adds to it's childlike charm. It's an innocent looking toy.
