    Popy Hyper Hero Intel?

    Anyone have details on Japanese Hyper Hero figs? True scale? Body quality? Previously discussed link?

    I keep running across these in the hunt for some Asian treasures… curious!

    I own a couple of these, they're an inch shorter than Mego figures, Medicom also made a RAH series that is an inch taller.

    They're fun figures and most of them are available dirt cheap as the Japanese don't seem to care about them. A word to the wise, the leather degrades on some of the suits.

    I can't find any photos of my Hyper Heroes but here are my RAH 220 figures.

    I've never had any of the Hyper Heroes (need to remedy that!), so I can't comment on how good they are. But as Brian says, the Medicom RAH 220 (which refers to their size in millimeters) are really cool and cheap (I often pick up boxed examples of these in Japan for less than ten bucks a pop). But yeah, some of the suits degrade over the years, and their joints are notoriously breakable (which might explain why Japanese collectors look down on them).

    I have the complete set of GoRengers and the Ultraman set. Love these but they are delicate. But fun to build.
