Mirrorman Mini Tin
|Character Design||Eiji Tsuburaya|
Review by JoshB
In 2002 Marmit released a series of scaled down reproductions of classic Tin Robot toys. Retailing for 4800 yen, these reproductions are the perfect way to get some tin without spending a ton of dough.
Each tin comes in a slipcase box. The toy is wrapped in a plastic bag, with a separate bag for the key. The tin is high quality, a really top notch job. I've never owned a vintage tin before, but if they were this quality, I may have to look into it.
Each 6" tin features walking action. Simply insert the key in the figures side, turn and let go. The figure waddles away at a slow pace.
And that's about it really. They look great, and have a solid, old-school vibe. The head sculpts are really sharp, and if you are a fan of this character, it will look great in your collection.
