Popy Toy Robots

By | November 25, 2018

popy grendizerDuring the early 1970's, the Japanese toy company Bandai created a toy division called Popy. Although they initially made tin toys such as the Grendizer robot photographed on the left, Popy began to incorporate die-cast metal into their action figure robot toys to reduce production costs during the '70s.  The metal was zinc based and became referred to as "Chogokin" which translates into super metal alloy.  In the late Seventies, Popy exported the Shogun Warriors toy line to the United States.  Mattel distributed these Chogokin super robots under their own brand and packaging.  During the mid Eighties (1984 - 1986), Popy re-released their deluxe version of their robot toys under their brand name "Godaikin" which were basically the same as their Japanese toy counterparts, except for their new American packaging for English speaking toy collectors in the USA.

Below is a list of Popy toy robots from the 1970's and 1980's. Click for additional sales details and shipping information.
