New Bandai Pages

I had originally created my jumbo machinder list based on the Mattel releases, then an expanded Popy list with a new landing page, ultimately expanded to other manufacturers. Bandai was glommed onto the Popy list but it makes more sense to break it out into its own page.

New Bandai Page

- New Five Robo Page
- New Jumbo Wildforce Megazord Page
- New Jumbo Wildforce Isis Megazord Page
- New Jumbo Storm Megazord Page
- New Jumbo Tunderstorm Megazord Page
- New Jumbo Thundersaurus Megazord Page

I took tons of additional images and will soon post many comparison shots of the various Mattel releases. Also more Popy releases will be added shortly.

Jumbo Machinders by Manufacturer

Today I changed the navigation of the site a bit and divided up the Jumbo Machinder menu into manufacturers with a new, generic jumbo machinder landing page that lists manufacturers. I also added the following:

New Jumbo Machinders landing page
Mattel Shogun Warriors page (not new, just moved)
Popy/Bandai page (updates below)
- Popy Grendizer page
- Popy Raideen the Brave page
New Toynami and Super7 Super Shogun page
- Super7 Stormtrooper page
- Super7 Boba Fett Empire Version page
New Unifive page
New Yutaka Gettar Robo Go page

Please let me know if you see any inaccuracies or issues.

New JM Knockoffs page and Kaiju Updates


Mattel Godzilla Head Detail

I had a chance today to update the Godzilla page and Rodan page with new content and images, something I've been meaning to do since those pages haven't been updated since the early 2000s back when I originally created them!

I also added a new Jumbo Machinder Knockoffs page with additional link to the Jugarama Aquaman that I own. Check out the comparison images between the Jugarama Aquaman and the Popy Kamen Rider X.

New Popy Pages

For 2017 I decided to continue documenting my collection to include the various manufacturers of the jumbo machinders I've managed to score over the years. The first is a Popy landing page that you can find here.


I've also included new pages of content and images for the following:

More to come as I get time to put the pages up. I'll also be creating pages for Toynami and the Funko/Super 7 Shoguns shortly along with other, classic jumbo machinder manufacturers.

Mattel Dimension 1978

This is a Mattel Dimension catalog from 1978 - these were sent to various advertisers so they can have clear images to use in print ads - think of these as being used for stats to include in newspapers and the like. It's quite rare and the only one I've found in many years of collecting.

New Colorforms Content and Images

I finally had some time today to added some additional images and content regarding the Shogun Warriors Colorforms Adeventure playset. Previously I had one image on the old Wildtoys site under a Misc. heading. I'm trying to add details formerly missing.



Let me know what you think!

Set 301 Permanent Redirects from Wildtoys Shogun pages to ShogunWarriors.org pages

Set 301 Permanent Redirects from Wildtoys Shogun pages to ShogunWarriors.org pages


I got around to putting a bit of VB script into the Wildtoys pages that remained "live" for Shogun Warriors content so they point to the new pages in the ShogunWarriors.org site. If anyone happens to see anything weird or a page that I've missed, please contact me so I can fix things. All the old pages will show up as blank - the search engines should all redirect to the updated pages.
