20th Century Toy Collector

By The Power Of Greyskull!

Majokit, MB Megatron and Mobile Suit Gundam

Phew! A slew of goodies have been added to the collection. There’s a hint of alliteration in the air with the culprits being Majokit sets, a Mobile Suit Gundam model kit and a dedicated page for my recently acquired MIB (mint-in-box) Milton Bradley Megatron!

Majokit was created around 1983 by well-known French die-cast car toy manufacturer Majorette. It was basically a kit playset that allowed you to build a traffic environment with street crossings, street signs, traffic lights and much more. It was more or less intended as an add-on to their popular die-cast car toys, although it wasn’t exactly up to scale with their own toy cars! However that may be, the Majokit system was a delight to play with. I had loads of Majorette cars when I was a little kid and I went nuts when I first saw the Majokit sets in my local toy store. I recently added a couple of Majokit sets to my collection, most of which still MISB (mint-in-sealed-box). Look out for an in-depth article on Majokit in the near future!

A couple of weeks ago I took up watching the first Japanese series of Mobile Suit Gundam. It’s a cartoon with giant battling robots in it and that is the only justification I need. Ofcourse I could not reject the temptation to part with even more of my hard earned money this month in exchange for a nice, special edition Mobile Suit Gundam RX-78-2 model kit. It was made for Gundam’s 30th anniversary last year and has special 7-Eleven colours. Now only to find the time to put the model together in the next couple of decennia…

And as you can see from the picture above, the Milton Bradley (MB) Megatron that I recently reported on obtaining has found its way into my collection room. I took the time to add a dedicated collection page on Megatron, which you can find on the Collection menu to the right or simply by clicking here. You’re welcome. But that’s not the only Milton Bradley madness, because I also added a whopping total of four other MB Transformers to my collection recently with one more to follow shortly. Stay tuned!!

      Hi Jeffrey. The best way to find them is probably Marktplaats (in Holland) and eBay internationally. That’s where I got all my Majokit stuff from.

      Tip: Search for both “Majokit” and “Majo-kit”, because the brand has been spelled in both ways and is often posted in either way on Marktplaats or eBay. Good luck!

    Majokits are so sweet! They are tied to the very early memories of my life. I used to playing with die-cast Majorette cars when I was 3 or 4, way before I started to like action figures. I had a beautiful Majokit with a pharmacy, if I remember correctly.

    I just loved the little traffic lights and the plastic zebra crossing sheet! They were pricless.

    Great site, thanks for the nostalgia. I was always disappointed majo-kit never really took off, one of the best toys ever.
