(Unnamed Mailaway)

This was an unnamed mailaway figure that I believe came out before the official release. It’s like a recolor of Terrared (OER), which itself was a version of Glidoler (OJR) with a “clamshell” head. There’s been a fella on ebay selling these—one at a time—for the past few years.

1981: Mechatoros

The Mechabonica (“mechanical bones”) line was launched in 1981 as a “test balloon”. They didn’t do so well, so they got shipped off to America, as the OAR many of us old farts grew up with. In 1983, Tomy tried again, and I think you know the rest of the story.

Through some miracle I managed to find an MIB Mechatoros on Yahoo Japan, and I didn’t even have to give up any organs for it! No way in hell I’m opening this one. See OAR bird for a built one.

Unnamed bird type

Somehow in all these years I never managed to get a loose copy of this one until very recently (I had that RS one, minus a head, but I didn’t know that was something different).

Zoicoro: Glidoler

I got the Glidoler off Yahoo Japan (thanks to Celga) for very few yen. I don’t even think I had to pay the “shipping within Japan” fee, because it was so small. See also: Dino Comics.
