Other Jumbo Machinders

Giant Robo

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, the Japanese company Maize who released a 52mm Gundam figure with some color variations
  • Gundam RX78-2 (base figure)
  • Gundam RX78-2 ("Gokin Color"figure)
  • Gundam RX78-2 (white figure) 
  • Gundam RX78-2 C3AFA Tokyo 2019 (black and white figure)
  • Gundam RX78-2 C3AFA Tokyo 2020 "Char's Exclusive Color" - (orange figure)
  • others?
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..
