Gashapon or capsule toys
have became very popular collectibles in Japan. These are small
PVC toys sold in vending machine. There are literally hundreds of
these capsule toys put out by different company each years cover wide
range of characters from TV and manga both old and new. Gashapon
Robotman by Yujin marks the first time Takara Microman property has been
release in capsule toys format. Like most capsule toys,
Gashapon Robotman stood about 2.5" and require minor assembly
(putting the arm into the socket.) The toy has some limited pose ability
however the cool part about Gashapon Robotman is that his chest (which
feature clear cockpit) can be pop apart to reveal Microman pilot (look
like M113 Bobby) inside the chest cockpit. Robotman Gashapon
Robotman has fair amount of details and mold to represent late Mr.
Moritou manga version. So far the original Robotman is the only
character that get made into capsule toys, with Takara recently open up
their property to outside company we might get to see other Microman
robot in capsule toys format.
- in Microman manga, Robotman was build by Microman M10X for the boy
Akira Katagai to pilot and help Microman fight against the
Acroyears. Robotman became one of the main characters in the
original Microman manga.
