Gatchaman Mini Soft Vinyl

I fully agree that this is a classic toy but being a perfectionist, I prefer the new TAITO prize item figures. I sincerely hope TAITO will release all 5 Gatchaman and preferably a figure of Zoltar, too.

Ah, Leo, did you see the Popy mini auction at Morphy's recently? There was a Ryu, the Owl, figure in the lot. I forget what it went for...

I've found that the Popy and Takatoku mini vinyls can be an incredibly easy and cheap fix, but none of them really stand out from the crowd. It seems too easy to accumulate a mass of them and really easy to be overwhelmed by them all of a sudden because they are for the most part really easy to find. I think I figured out that I'd rather save up and splurge for two or three bigger and higher quality figures than a whole mess of the little guys. A handful of the little ones can still be a really good time though.

Sum Up

I think you sum it up well. These mini vinyl figures tend to be overlooked but they are not that bad considering what your getting: a vintage soft vinyl figure by Popy for less than $15.00 dollars. I noticed nobody really writes about these mini vinyl figures but I think they are quite cool. But generally if one is serious about collecting vintage vinyl one is going to have to definitely move up to the larger full sized vinyl.

I missed the Morphy auctions Sanjeev, I had no $$$!
