Other Jumbo Machinder Manufacturers


I created this page to list any contemporary manufacturers who are for the most part releasing very limited edition JMs in the 50-60mm range, usually as sofubi - as they grow the line they'll be moved to their own pages.

Marmit - this is one of the larger independent toy manufacturers in Japan - to date they've only released one figure that's commonly collected by jumbo machinder enthusiasts - this is the Calamity Giant Robo 24" Super Robot (called Johnny Sokko's Giant Robot in the US). There's also a bootleg that appeared shortly after the Marmit release.
Another Newcomer is Dragon Boy x Bear Model - there's some type of relationship with Medicom but it's unclear what that is and how it impacts the toys being produced. To date there are only a couple of releases with color variations:
  • Dabulas M2 - Green/Silver 2016
  • Dabulas M2 - Green Variant
  • Dabulas M2 - Purple Variant(Mandarake exclusive?)
  • Dabulas M2 - Black Variant (Limited to 20)
  • Rokuron Q9 - Red Variant
  • Rokuron Q9 - Color Variant
  • Kingudan X10 - Retro Color Variant? (this may be in a 10" version only)
Lastly, there are some collectors who have started making customs, for the most part through the use of 3D Printing - one of those is Tom Hughs. To date he's made two rounds of customs - the first were mostly for his own use with an occasional print for friends. The second round he's made available in very limited runs (they have the limitation inked on the bottom of one foot). I've created a separate Custom Jumbo Machinder page for those..
