Sometimes things must be bought, because if not, nobody would believe you when you told them about it. Such is the case with this Gaiking bootleg.

It's like cryptozooloogy for toys.

Lets talk about the card and packaging first. Daiking is sold blister-carded, meaning encased in a vacu-formed plastic bubble that adheres to a card via glue. When this arrived, the glue had dried up, and the bubble was mostly off The front card art is gaudy, loud and obnoxious -. in other words -. Awesome

At the top of the card, in a small yellow box is the phrase "Pla-Gokin" (pu ra alloy) Below that is the character name -.. Daiking, likely named to avoid the obvious impending lawsuit

The "Pla" in "Pla gokin" stands for plastic.

The bottom right has the toy safety inspection seal (no idea if it actually got inspected), and on the left, the logo of the Manufacturer, Toy Pat Co.

The back of the card is just black printed on cardboard, with an illustration of Daiking that looks remarkably inspired by the Shogun Warriors version of the Gaiking Jumbo.

The toy itself is a hideous monstrosity, but I can not help stare at it and marvel at its weirdness. It looks like Gaiking, but it does not. It's as if they made the toy based on a drawing by a Japanese 6 year old, without ever actually knowing what Gaiking really looked like.

The material is a smoky clear . vinyl infused with large metallic flakes I guess that's the gokin in Pla-Gokin The vinyl is thick, smelly, with a slightly sticky texture

Articulation is kind of a moot point with this, but it has the standard arms and waist movement. The toy stands about 6 inches tall.

Really, it's another obscure funky oddity in . the world of Japanese toys I love the almost folk-art take on one of the most iconic super robots I am also intrigued about the fact that this appears to be a bootleg made by the Japanese for the Japanese market -. something of a rarity . You almost never see these for sale. When they do come up, expect them to sell for a few hundred dollars.
