Aura Battler Dunbine

My Clover Dunbine

This was a fun toy! I had this as a kid and I loved it! Mine was very sturdy and held up well through play as a kid. I especially loved how the sword went into the backpack. I also painted many of the highlights such as white talons and painting the figure and painting the eyes red.

Funny, same thing happened to me. when Ebay started I had too much random Japanese toys and I decided that I was only going to concentrate on a handful of shows, so my Saint Seiya, Dunbine and Galiant items were sold off.

But I have a lot of great memories of this one in the 1980's!

I had this

I owned (possibly still do to be honest) this toy, bought it back in the mid-80's. it's a nice piece, with a decent amount of die-cast if I recall correctly, but yes the plastic gets brittle over the years.

My favorite part was the claws on the wrists, they pull out! This toy wasn't remotely close to the actual mech in the show too, I love that.

Really the claws pulled out? Ha! I never knew that, Japanese toy makers never explained all the features their toys did. I remember accidentally discovering the sword went on the back.

Very cool toy, I should have bought it from Josh B

I thought I could fix it and

I thought I could fix it and it broke on me too, this toy hates glue, but I love the figure anyways. I got one of those TRU Dunbine figs back in the day and loved it, so it was nice to get a Clover one.
