Not a German tank...

Looks more like an M26 Pershing crossed with a British Churchill.

Google "GERMAN PANZER III" tank

Hey Robotbastard,
I can totally see M26 Pershing, I was thinking more of a German Panzer III. Anyways I was referring more to the German inspired helmet.

I love it, Shogundan! Glad

I love it, Shogundan! Glad you got around to reviewing this guy--I know how much you love this lil dude!

These toys are a collaboration between Gargamel and Charactics. Charactics makes (among many other things) little, cute licensed Toho kaiju vehicles...and Gargamel wanted in with their take on Zagoran (and other pachi kaiju of theirs). Match made in heaven!

I still have my Zagoran tank from SDCC07. The tank is a larger version from Charactics in tan/red/black camo, and the Zagoran MCB ("Mischievous Crouching Bastard"...the skullbrain nickname for this particular Zagoran sculpt from Gargamel) is blue and silver. Killer toy!

They make planes, too. I'd love to see Charactics make an old WWII-style submarine and then maybe a space shuttle...to round out the vehicles!

Man, these are so much fun, even Nekrodave would crack a smile! ;)

About the Zagoran Tank Mini

Have you guys seen the tank being piloted by Mechagodzilla?

Oh yeah, dude--check out the

Oh yeah, dude--check out the Charactics link on Kaiju-Taro in my first comment above. Charactics has been at making these cool vehicles for a while now. They've had the Toho kaiju license for a while, so all the original ones feature Godzilla kaiju (Goji, MG, and Hedorah, I think).

Their more recent Zag vehicles are from a collaboration with Gargamel. I also like their Ghostland tank. Glowie!

Charactics

Oh, silly me, I never even went to that link before. Just saw this guy on eBay while looking around. The different tanks are all pretty cool.

Speaking of "glowie", I've been meaning to say how jealous I am of your glow collection! The photos you have up are amazing. I'm yet to really get into vinyl myself, but I have a Cyclopus on the way and might go for that glowie Dokugan soon.

Glowies

Haha...thanks for the kind words, man! Those pics are years old, though! I have so many more now...and others I've parted with. I just moved recently, so the Wall of Glow is still under reconstruction, but once it's been assembled, I'll be sure to update my collection pics!

Incidentally, Gareth, did you get my e-mail about the pink Marnon?

Wall of Glow

Heh, yeah, I figured the pics were kind of out-of-date. Impressive nonetheless. As for ones you've parted with, please tell me you still have that huge Hedorah...it's my favorite!

Yahoo is silly and considered that email spam, so I only just saw it, just responded.

One thing I can't believe I forgot to mention before: I also have Nor'easter Vegetius to look forward to in December! A great way to get into vinyl, no?
