Japanese Laserdiscs | X-Bomber Toys and Links

Gareth Jones provided the majority of the jigsaw images, a rare video cover and model boxes too; thanks to Phil Ayres and James Bird for the other video covers. I've included a little montage of the Japanese toys which were available; Shane's site at Bigdaix.com used to host more detailed information but you'll need to use the Internet Archive to try and access his site now (try around 2004). See also an artcile by a SFXB reader on two Dai-X toys here. The Annual can also be considered a collectable, of course - see the comics section for pictures, and this page for details of its contents. See also the merchandise page. Your best bet for finding any of the items pictured below is:

Jigsaws

The above are the UK video releases - or at least the ones I've got scans of. I've only ever seen the Thorn EMI tape a couple of times (it features episodes 4 and 5), but the other compilation tapes are more common on Ebay.

These US tapes are also available through Ebay - 3 episodes to each tape, slightly cut from the UK versions and run together to make 8 movies. NTSC standard, but playable on modern UK VCRs (which use the PAL standard).

Japanese Laserdiscs

Laserdiscs were a precursor of DVDs, but used discs much larger than CD size. This laserdisc was only released in Japan, apparently, but in common with laserdisc releases included several extras. A limited edition DVD box set of the series based on the laserdiscs is due for release in Japan in October 2002, but unfortunately will not have an English soundtrack.

X-Bomber toys and links

Some montages of the foreign toys which were available, including a Barry Hercules mask (others masks were available in France, including Shiro and a Termoid) - see links below for more merchandise information. On the right are scans of Japanese model kits sent in by Gareth Jones; the Imperial Fighter kit has a very nice illustration of the fighter on the front.
