THE JAPANESE VINTAGE STAR WARS COLLECTING THREAD  Japan110


Introduction

Japan produced and distributed a wide range of Star Wars toys and merchandise throughout the vintage era. The three license holders responsible for the action figure lines were Takara (Star Wars), Popy (ESB), and Tsukuda (ROTJ). In addition to these there were numerous other license holders responsible for merchandise ranging from novelty toys, food and drinks items, stationery, records, ceramics, to many other items... often weird and wonderful, with action-packed features, and unique to what the companies in the west were producing at the same time.

THE JAPANESE VINTAGE STAR WARS COLLECTING THREAD  Takara10



  • The Takara Co. Ltd was formed in 1955

  • Licensed to produce and distribute merchandise from the first Star Wars film

  • Other Takara toy hits included Diaclone, Battle Beasts, Combat Joe (the Japanese version of Action Man/G.I.Joe), and Microman (later rebranded as Transformers for the western market in the 1980s)

  • Takara Star Wars toys often came with cool action features, such as the transforming X-Wing Fighter, Missile Firing R2-D2s and C-3PO, a wind-up walking R2-D2, and many other interesting and quirky items!

  • The ST logo seen on Takara packaging belongs to the company responsible for checking safety standards of the toy

  • In the 1980s, Takara received criticism for its original logo mascot - a design based on a golliwog-like doll Takara had previously made called Dakko-Chan (ダッコちゃん) meaning embraceable / hugging baby. Takara eventually replaced this logo with a new, fantastical character called 21st Century Colorful Dakko-Chan or Dakko-Chan 21.

Action Figures.

Action Figures (First 12 MOC). 1977.

Takara released the first wave of action figures in Japan on regular Kenner cards. A small rectangular sticker written in the Japanese language was applied to the front.
The pictures below show each of the first wave characters on their cards along with some variations like an alternative sculpt Stormtrooper and C-3PO, and a Darth Vader with a white background to the bubble.
Although advertised as first wave figures, Death Squad Commander and Jawa were not released on the Takara cards. C-3PO, Stormtrooper and Darth Vader are notable for having different moulds to their Kenner counterparts.

X-Wing Fighter (transforming)

Transforming X-Wing Fighter. MIB. 1979.

Although almost the same scale as the regular Kenner X-Wing Fighter, this is not a genuine 3 3/4 scale figure vehicle as it came with its own unarticulated mini Luke X-Wing Pilot and R2-D2 figures. This cool X-Wing could transform into many different guises and came with rocket-firing missiles.

THE JAPANESE VINTAGE STAR WARS COLLECTING THREAD  Popy_s11


POPY



  • Popy was a division of the Bandai toy company

  • Popy was known for its late 1970s "Chogokin" series (rebranded "Shogun" for western markets), and, later, "Machine Robo" (rebranded as "Gobots")

  • Popy produced 15 figures for the ESB line

  • The 3 3/34 figures were presented in attractive cardboard boxes not much bigger than the actual figures. Also included were two catalogues. The figures were sealed in baggies

THE JAPANESE VINTAGE STAR WARS COLLECTING THREAD  Tsukud10

TSUKUDA



  • The Tsukuda Group was made of three separate groups: Tsukuda Original, Tsukuda Ideal, and Tsukuda Hobby

  • The majority of its products were games rather than toys, notably Othello. Tsukuda was also the official distributor of Rubik's Cube

  • Tsukuda Hobby was responsible for producing the ROTJ line of action figures in Japan

  • At first glance their 3 3/4 figures on moc appear no different than their Kenner counterparts. But take a look at the back of the card and you will see attached a large Japanese language printed sticker allowing for distribution to the Japanese market

  • Tsukuda also produced a wide range of metal, plastic and resin model kits that covered both the ESB and ROTJ films

Hey everyone, here is a reference thread I've been working on to cover vintage era Japanese Star Wars products!

It's still early days but already included are some excellent Japanese Star Wars items!

Hope you like cheers 


Please feel free to add your pics of Japanese Star Wars collectables! Would love to see what you have and be able to add them to the index pages.


Big thanks to Fred (Thargoil) for making the graphics, and Josh (Josh_T) for resources and info.

cheers

Paul

Excellent idea Paul! I will certainly follow this thread with interest.
I don't currently own any Japanese items, but I can see myself being inspired to get some. Wink

BTW: For Popy I would ask Javi (JaviSWSpain)...he once had a huge set as far as I remember.

edit: He had a full set (and surely has saved the pics?)

Definitely. The whole figure is different... my body has "TAKARA" molded into the plastic on the bottom/rear as well.
