Actually, M1 did make at

Actually, M1 did make at least one other yokai vinyl, a 4.5" tall Kara-kasa. It's really goofy looking though. I'm not a fan of it.

Glow Year?

I dig on your glow collection, great set of figures, again..I'll keep my eyes open for these kind of items for you.

Dave and Sanjeev, what year is this toy from? I noticed many of these items are from the sixties. Accordingly these are some of the oldest items being reviewed on Collection DX.

Thanks

The first M1 Daimon was

The first M1 Daimon was actually initially released in 1997. I'm not positive about the glow version specifically. But the rest I reviewed are definitely from the '60s, and yes, the oldest toys reviewed here. I actually had to ask Josh to manually add dates for before 1970 to the database so I could list them properly!

Hehe...yup! 1997 it is.

Hehe...yup! 1997 it is. Always pays to cross check with ClubTokyo for this sort of thing.

So, yeah, the film Daimon comes from may be old, but this toy is just over ten. Nothing I would call "vintage", but certainly one of the nicer original pieces (NOT a Bullmark reissue) from M1.

As for glowie reviews, I must admit: these reviews are pretty quick and easy to pump out! Time's tight these days, so full-blown reviews of gimmick-laden gokin must wait...
