I found this single page in the back of a 1982 Mattel Germany catalog and for some reason it kind of made me sad. The catalog (which I'll get to) is loaded with pages of cool European Big Jim stuff, Barbie and newcomer He-Man.
These two Goldorak toys (an animated series that seemed to only air in non English speaking parts of the world) are the last memories of the once great Shogun Warriors line, which were no where to be found in the US catalogs.
Speaking of toys (which I always am):
I'll be setting up at this weekend's Burlington Toy Show for something called "Mego North" a Canadian celebration of the toys made by Mego corporation. It's going to be fun, if you can, you should make the trek!
I'll be selling copies of Rack Toys, Brick Mantooth man-dolls and many, many vintage goodies so I can live under the lie that I'm not a hoarder.

If you can't make the show, check me out on twitter, where I'll be showing off some of the goodies available.
