I remember this as well. It was available from dealers back in the late ’70’s. I think the first person I saw with one was Rich Marrotta, or maybe Martin Lewis, not sure. The item came from Japan, if I recall correctly, and it was like a Troublewit, but seemed to hold up better, and offered different types of figures, etc. I’d like to know more about this too – anyone?
