Harlock standee

Harlock, cardboard background (?), Eikosha, Japan, 1970's

I don't really know what this is or what it's used for, but this nifty cardboard standee did cost 350 Yen back in the late seventies, Was it used to keep envelopes ? Or important papers ?

Futuristic bike with fin ?

Oh soo tiny... I'm 1.5cm long
But have a fat fender and a flat face...
What am I ? Who made me ? Please help me find my origins !

Mister bug-eyes

Sometimes bizarre - robots are... Or at least this guy... Nobody really knows the maker, but it has Hong Kong pedigree for sure. Batteries ? They go in the head. And weird of weird : it has a knob to make him grow (yes ! legs extend !)

Space Monster Robot, ?, Hong Kong, 1970's
