Just found those on Yahoo Japan... do you know what they are???
I don't know, but I LOVE them! Little cameras for the win!
Burger King movie toys?
What's that first one? Some kind of stoplight?
Looks like a stoplight to me...
Looks like a camera as well. Almost like an old Kodak Brownie.
I think you're right, those are 4 different cameras. I still wonder where they're from...
These look like some of those generic Minicons from Armada, I remember one that looked like a camera that looked just like one of those.
As for the first one, it looks like a set of binoculars on it's side, if it was a traffic light I'd have cried Signal Lancer immediately... Might be all cameras, I didn't know Reflector had kids...
the first one is a twin lense reflex camera (TLR) i have a real working one as part of my camera collection. the 2nd one is a medium format studio camera, the 3rd one is a single lense reflex (SLR) and teh 4th is a medim format field camera i believe, though i've never seen one with the handle without having a flash attached, though it could be an early video camera. I want each and every one of these.
I don't believe they're prototypes of anything. I think they're some sort of capsule toy. Each one has excess plastic where they were taken off of the sprue. Overall look and simplistic design remind me of similar mini model kits I used to get.
Yeah capsule toys are a bit of a collector's industry itself over there.
holy crap I hope these are movie minicons!
Yep, judging by the look of them, that's exactly what these are - some generic freebies you'd get out of a gumball machine. Cute, but probably not related to official TFs in any way.
They are old Bandai Gasyapon toys !!
It appears we have a winner in the "what is it?" contest.
we need a host for when these threads pop up.
i can be the reveal move/slaps ass model.
That first one can be kitbashed into that TF traffic light dude
Nice job! So from what year are they?
