The color changed a bit to a green and orange color scheme, but the toy essentially stayed the same.</p> <p>This one stings, to be honest. As I look through these images of toys that I used to have but got rid of, this one pains me a lot. I don't think I really had this all that long before I had to sell it again. I may have only taken it out to take these pictures, the auction pictures. I don't want to even look at what one in this condition would cost me now.</p> <p>But lets try to take a look at this for what it is, a beautiful toy, in a beautiful box. The Takatoku design here is on display at it's finest. Look at all the mechanical details about scale with a nice combination of official looking logos and English text. And then... the box art itself.
