Anyone get these? How close are they to authentic and can you easily tell? I’ve got no problem with repro as long as you can tell it is repro. I’ve bought some other repro items before which have been great alternatives.
Just got a Mach Baron and know I will have one heck of a time finding the parts I need. Silver missiles, two types and that car. Does any other Popy Jumbo besides Space Dragon or the Spazer have as unusual 2 chest missiles as Mach Baron does?
I think I’m just going to wait for authentic ones to show up. I know it’s a long shot but I didn’t think I’d ever get the pilot for Gordian and I did.
For now, shot a few red missiles off it and boy, does it fire hard. Just like the series, they upgraded Mach who now shoots. Red Baron did not.
For some reason the head of my Mach Baron, the missive holders are really tight so I don’t want to paint those cause it would rub off onto the vinyl. It will be hardest to replicate the two uniquely shaped chest missiles anyways. Saw a couple on sale a few years ago for more than I wanted to pay.
Finally completes my set of Mach and Red Baron. I think these are the only two Jumbos the missile holders on the head. My only one complaint, Mach Baron’s fists are huge and gives it an awkward look.
I don’t have the missiles for Red Baron either. Not sure why Popy wanted to make them blue as the figure has nowhere to shoot those with unless you buy attachments. Saw some on sale on eBay but far more than I want to pay. Noticed a Red Baron with unbroken chest guns command almost double of ones with broken ones.
Board has been a bit quiet but I usually post when I acquire a new piece.
