Elegab’s Kaiju Patrol Car!

Posted in Kaiju misc., New Vinyl with tags , , , , , on March 8, 2009 by REdYOdA

I had to share this from sculptor & toymaker ‘Elegab’s’ blog…because it is just such a great concept!

It’s only in the prototype stage now…but so very cool!

The ‘Kaiju Patrol Car”!!!

Kaiju Patrol Car!

Shown with DT’s mini passengers: Mimigiras and another new mini sculpt…Damegon!

Tiny Terrible Passengers!

Now imagine this toy all painted up with a variety of interchangeable passengers…so awesome! The little DT mini figures are only about 2 inches tall…so it wouldn’t even be a complete shelf hog!

One more pic…being attacked by Dokuro Tarou’s first real ‘full size’ monster sculpt: Shatorugon!

Shatorugon!

Shatorugon (or Shuttlegon…there’s a whole back-story of the monster being made from a space shuttle) will hopefully be available from Dokuro Tarou around the end of March…keep your eyes on the store!

The Monster Patrol Car…well-??? I really hope Elegab & DT manage to put it into production. I kinda think he will…Shintani Naritada’s (Elegab) sculpts and toys are really getting a lot more, well deserved, attention!

One more of Shatorugon, and how cool is it that he can hold other DT toys or ???…

With crushing grip!

Dokuro Tarou New Monsters!

Posted in New Vinyl with tags , , , , , , on February 7, 2009 by REdYOdA

Coming up for sale Feb. 14th (hopefully) are not one…but 3 new sculpts from Dokuro Tarou!

Elegab's New Monsters!

Sculpted by Shintani “Nari” Naritada, the maker of probably my favorite mini last year…Misslelas and of course his little sidekick Haramakion! The 4″ Zunougon (above) is the latest enemy to Nari’s hero character Docro Taro. Zunougon is a bullied boy genius who hates the world and is transformed into an evil brain creature who will challenge Docro Taro.

Zunougon will be available in (3) colorways (Green above)…

Black & Gold

Blue

I like this guy too…The tiny Honegon…

Honegon!

I really enjoy the whole back-story and world Nari & Dokuro Tarou are creating with these figures. Each new sculpt definitely has Shintani’s signature look. I find the the coarse look of the sculpts really appealing. I’m thinking these guys probably won’t last long so… good luck!

Dokuro Tarou is one of the rare Japanese Toy makers that will ship to the USA directly from their webstore.

Grumble Toy distributes DT’s toys too…but no official word on these yet.
