Masudaya for sale on eBay UK

Tin toy manufacturer Masudaya (founded in 1923, Tokyo) was a Japanese leading producer of battery and mechanical operated toys in the post- war period, and unlike most of their competitors, has managed to survive to this day. Masudaya normally identifies their toys using the M-T, or Modern Toys logo.

Masudaya was known for essentially creating the 'skirmishable' airsoft gun. They were the first to design airsoft guns to be used for combat simulation. Before that, all airsoft guns were essentially for target shooting in your backyard.

Masudaya has produced hundreds of toys through the years, many of them vintage tin type toys either wind-up or battery-operated, in addition to the following Airsoft replicas:

Hi, I would love to be able to identify a tin toy I have. It is a tin wind up butterfly, marked made in occupied Japan and looks similar to Masudaya trademark that I have seen but the ONLY trademark is a sideway diamond shape with an M and T going through it.It does not say Modern Toys as I have seen on others. Any help would be so appreciated.

►reply: I don't think Masudaya actually makes toys anymore. Maybe ask here on this website on robot toy parts.

I have a Masudaya tin army tank 3599 from I believe the late 60's. The tank is complete and in great shape but does not have the barrel. Any idea as to where I could find this?
►reply: It's not easy finding parts for old toys... maybe there is a broken Masudaya tank for parts for sale on eBay.

Hi there - I have a Radicon Tank but have lost the remote/radio controller. Do you have any suggestions on where I can find a replacement or get a replacement which will work the tank ? Thanks in advance

Hi. Have a M-T Beechcraft 3311; fuselage removable; mechanical operation of propellers and forward movement (not working). When were these made and what might one in fair condition be worth?
►reply: I think these were made mid-1960s, value depends on state, box and demand somewhere between 50-200 USD but I must say its a bit of a wild guess...

Hello, I need help finding info on a vintage T M toy. Its an Apollo Space Capsule with a floating astronaut, the only info I can find is "The Apollo Spacecraft #3784" but this is not the same one. On the one I have the astronaut is much smaller than the #3784 Other than that it looks just like it.
