HOMO FERRATUS - by makadi3000

I'm a designer currently living and working in Zurich, right in the middle of Europe. This blog is about my original toy work and hobby interests. I dedicate it to Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama, creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe, which has always been a teacher and source of inspiration to me, as he is for many contemporary concept artists and illustrators of the 21st century.

Thanks for looking! - Adi D'Agostino aka makadi3000

1/6 S.A.F.S. by Toys McCoy

Here is what is expected to become the ultimate Maschinen Krieger action figure: Kow Yokoyama's fully articulated 1/6 S.A.F.S. (Super Armored Fighting Suit) by McCoy! Speculations about the price have ranged from 750$ to 1000$. However, I'm sure we will understand its true value when we're holding it in our hands playing for hours and hours like little boys again. I downloaded a truckload of pictures from boards and official sources. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do and don't forget to let me know if you hear any news about it! :) Is that Mr. McCoy holding that lovely little Merc lady?

Yeah what can I say? The doll is a cheap extra. And I do not think that the Mak alone is worth 1k. I got a BM Projekt 1/6 Kaneda and Bike for ~600$ I realy had to starve to get the money togehter but overall it is a decent model. Diecast frame, light's, sound, removeble parts etc.pp

Do not know what it makes here the ridculus price other than it is toysmcoys
