Custom built Spazer Page (Winter / Summer / Fall 2012)
Okay, where to start on this item. Well, how can one own a popy Grendizer jumbo and not dream about having a Spazer to dock it into?
To own an original Spazer was always expensive and by 2012, one would been somewhere around $10,000 for a complete, in box deal.
Early 2012, I dreamt about it quite a bit, along with a couple other collectors that wanted to own a Spazer themselves, Ray Raymundo (eyeone) and Arthur Pittman (toylover2012). Both of them had been very big fans of my reproduction work from the beginning, had supported and purchased about every new item I made. They offered to pre-buy a Spazer to help get the ball going, but I hate to take money from someone until the item was ready, so declined their generous offers.
So, what is a guy to do, besides drool and sacrifice KFC chicken to some jumbo god and hope one magically shows up in the mail? Kinda, doubtful. Guess you could do a Google search for Spazer and then figure out who may own one and try to steal theirs, but would rather not.
Well, I guess you build your own then.
Summer 2012, Slowly I started to build a vacuum form machine from these plans. It is a great design and machine. May be a bit overkill, but came in handy when needing to dry out ABS plastic for an hour or so, before putting the full heat to it for forming. A whole page and story for this.
Fall 2012 was when I spent quite a bit time in September, October, and November to get the Spazer built. I decided to go a hybrid of the ride-on kiddie jumbo Spazer and the SOC die-cast version.
