Baltan is one of those kaiju

Baltan is one of those kaiju that I always felt like I should like more than I do. But it really doesn't do much for me. And I like Mecha Baltan even less. :(

It looks good

Specially when standing next to normal Baltan. Now, to find Mecha Baltan... a bit hard...

Mecha Baltan

I don't collect vinyls, but there's just something about this figure. It now graces my eBay Watched Items list.

Wish me luck! I'm a mere $3 away from being able to afford the shipping, heh.

Neat

That's a pretty cool vinyl

I've always liked

I've always liked Baltan--even more so after I saw the first episode of Ultraman!--but I've always been a bit dissatisfied with most of the toys of him. I dunno...I guess I'm picky.

This page is a great visual resource for Baltan toys (even if it isn't complete). I had the Popy/B-Club gid reissues of the original Bullmark, but ultimately, their sculpts didn't do anything for me. Just too...corny.

I was then able to find the unpainted glow M1 sculpt, but I have yet to douse it with paint... I think the sculpt is a better balance of old-school and cool/accurate.

Finally, I recently scored a rare (I think) pre-painted (but unassembled) glow Baltan from Billiken Shokai. Super-cool and accurate, but I'm not sure if it's too cool, y'knowmsayin?

Anyway, I'm sure I'll find the perfect Baltan someday...

In the meantime, this Mecha Baltan is pretty cool, though. It's got a great sculpt and I like the idea of mechanizing parts of kaiju! Mecha-King Ghidorah, for example, is hot! Cyborg monster...how can ya beat that???
