Rise & Fall Of The Shogun Warriors

Post by davemerrill »

just wanna point your eyeballs at Mike Dent / Vintage Henshin's new video which is "The Rise And Fall Of The Shogun Warriors", a deep dive into the toy biz of the 70s in Japan & the US and how they collided to give 70s kids fun! It's really well made and covers a lot of fascinating territory, including a weird mid-2000s revival attempt that didn't really go anywhere. Check it out!

This is fantastic!

runesaint: Hmmm. "Middle School", perhaps?

There's a toy shop near Greer that has the Mazinger Z in the display case, I got to fiddle with it a few weeks back before they put it out there. Their asking price for it is 300.

I never knew that Godzilla toy was a part of the Shogun Warriors line. I bought one of those from a flea market when I was a kid and despite how weird it was for Godzilla to have a rocket punch action, I loved the hell out of that thing.
