#794 KAIDO – KANATS, TARKHAN and ALPACKO (1990)


MONTH OF THE BOOTLEG AT TOYS FROM THE PAST!
 
In this entry I would like to make a list of which figures goes with which accessories, that is some kind of Yojoe’s WHOBIT, but for Kaido. It is a much easier work, since there are only 12 figures in this toyline.

As mentioned in the first Kaido entry, most weapons are copied from G.I.Joe figures other from Lanard's Corps, while the backpacks were their own designs and could actually talk. In this toyline, all accesories are made of BLACK plastic, except the backpacks, that are available in black, orange, blue, red and grey.

There are 6 types of backpacks, almost each of them in two colours. All of them had different voices -that is, different electronics- so, make sure the voice command is exactly the one from that figure. There are othercollections that also have these backpacks, and sometimes, they could be mixed up.

Bikin produced 12 figures for this toyline. They are actually numbered KS001 to KS012. These figures and their accessories are:

  • KS001 – Charkkaff


  • KS002 – Kanats


  • KS003 – Kapawach

  • KS004 – Daïman

  • KS005 – Zorgev (backpack same cast as Slanders, but orange)
 
  • KS006 – Slanders


  • KS007 – Zargone (backpack same cast as Orx, but red)


  • KS008 – Tarkhan (backpack same cast as Charkaff, and also in black)


  • KS009 – Molloch (backpack same cast as Daïman, but red)


  • KS010 – Orx


  • KS011 – Alpacko (backpack same cast as Kapawach, also in black)

  • KS012 – Tetrark


Because I like presenting new toys in every entry, I will now introduce three more figures from this toyline. Still four more to go.

SLANDERS (KS006) is one of the good guys, the underwater specialist fom the KAIDO team.


ZARGONE (KS007) the mad scientist from the NEW ORDER, is an expert in genetics, biochemistry and robotics.


TARKHAN (KS008) is a Mongolian circus artist recruited by the NEW ORDER for his mastery is horseriding, falcon training and snake charmer.

  1. ¡Qué gran línea fueron los Kaïdo!

    Sólo tuve a Zargone y a Tarkhan, pero los recuerdo con especial cariño. Si la memoria no me falla, me los compró mi madre en una tienda (que todavía hoy sigue abierta) situada en el interior de la estación de autobuses de Badajoz, pues la tenemos al lado de casa. La típica tienda con chucherías, bebidas, snacks... pero también con regalos y juguetes, como figuras de Las nuevas aventuras de He-Man, además de los Kaïdo y seguramente más series de juguetes que ahora no recuerdo.

    El blister de los Kaïdo me parece espectacular (y muy original, a modo de estuche, al estilo del de una cinta de vídeo), siendo una colección que así, en su embalaje, luce estupendamente.

    Un saludo.

    1. Pues ya consegui completar la colección en blister, que es la manera de tenerla completa para que no te falte el librito, ni la mochila, ni los accesorios.

      El único que yo tuve lo compré en una feria de pueblo a la que llegó un hombre y puso lo menos 40 figuras en el suelo perfectamente cuadradas. Igual me costó 300 pesetas o así. Ahora mismo no recuerdo haberlas visto en ningún otro sitio.

      ¡Gracias por el comentario!
