Since the rapid rise to fame of anime and old cartoons about robots such as Voltes V and Mazinger Z, the die cast metal robot figures that were selling vastly in the 1980’s are not being sought after but at outrageous prices. No one thought that some day that such so called “toys” would command such a demand, a lot coming from the people who were young once.
While the films of these famous robot heroes are still being shown today, this has all the more created a demand for their die cast metal figures for children of old and new. Manufacturing of the said toys are no longer being done, making them as rare finds once seen in the market. The price for buying one can reach as far as $200.00 which some collectors wouldn’t really mind.
There are a number of other robot like heroes that present anime films show on hand. But among them, the legacy of popular series such as that of Voltes V is still being followed in the market. As in a business, with proper advertising and promotions, it is only normal that such collector’s items will be prized finds for most fanatics today.
