Azone Incorporated Original Doll Loco Island Minako, BBi Asian Body Builder, and Bbi JASDF Ueda.

Whoa - did I get two of the same Bbi guys? No. Blue Box International made two similar figures: JASDF Ueda who came boxed with loads of accessories or "nude" and Body Builder Elite Force, Asian.

Query: how can you distinguish between BBi’s Asian Body Builder and BBi’s Ueda action figures?

Answer: the Body Builder figures have nude hands; Ueda has gloved hands.



Get Real Girl Skylar Ron and Lanard I-Girl Asia. Fun, poser bodies. Alas for the big heads and more cartoony look.

And yes, I have more.

That Sulu does look like him. Even before you named him I said, "Hey, that looks like Lt. Sulu!"

He's the only one I recognize, but I do know that Skylar is wearing the Kimono from the Xena:WP Armageddon doll.

Thanks for all the info. I love them all. The BBi guys are very new to me, and I would love having them in my collection.

You have a very nice collection of dolls. I love your BBI guys! They look very much alike.

Hi Muff, Vanessa, and Georgia Girl! You are welcome. I love most of my crew, too. Why I am happy to share their photos here ;-)

@Muff - glad that you recognized Sulu and Skylar. Do you have that Xena kimono/gown, too? I love it. Skylar insisted on wearing it for the photo.

@Vanessa - I think that they are the same head mold with slightly different face screening. (I'll check on an action figure board the Bbi Body Builders might be expensive today; I have not seen them for sale for some time. You might find a nude Ueda at Monkey Depot or one of the action figure online stores. That's how I got mine.

@Vanessa - I got my Ueda nude aka loose rather than NRFB fully dressed. I hit send before I could clarify that ;-P

I didn't see Ueda at Monkey Depot today, but you may still be able to find him nude and for a decent/reasonable price.

And I'm waiting for confirmation about the BBi heads ;-)

I used to have the Xena that came with the kimono and stupidly sold her on ebay. I wasn't a collector then so she didn't have much meaning to me. :(

D7ana said...

@Muff - are you still interested in that Xena? I love the kimono gown, but she is not one of my favorite dolls. Send me a message if you're interested.

Muff said...

Dana, I'm going to keep an eye out for her at the thrift store. I feel like it will be fate if I find her again especially for only $2.00!

This time I only recognized the Modern Circle Ken doll. The rest are rather unknown for me :P

D7ana said...

@Muff - you have luck finding the most amazing deals. May fate treat you to another Xena soon ;-D

@V. - glad that you saw some new figures ;-)
