Any of you guys remember Raidin? Not sure on the spelling because it's been years and years since I've seen the show. Your typical mega bot with giant bow, built in shield, giant sword, energy projectiles from his chest and of course transformation into a huge eagle form that always did the move through of doom.

Oh yes! "Brave Raideen"! Possibly the very first "transformable" robot back in the 70's robot show genre. Better known in the States as "Shogun Warriors". In fact, there was a Marvel comic of the same name that used Raideen, Combattler V (above) and Danguard Ace. Only the mecha designs were used from the source materiel. Nothing else. I loved that comic as a kid. But it's unbearably cheezy now. ^_^

But... you mean you didn't think Dr. Demonicus was the greatest?!?!;)

Okay. Maybe it isn't unbearably cheesy. But the nacho quotient is way up there. :D

 

It was pure Gouda... but in a good(a) way :D

 

I just remembered that there was an evil doctor and went into google and typed:

Shogun Warriors Marvel Doctor

And lo... Doctor Demonicus Appeared... they had his whole bio and stats for Marvel SHRPG

 

Here it is if you want it:

I don't know if this particular giant robot fits into the same

background as Raideen or any of the others that have been

mentioned thus far, but one of those that was part of the

"Shogun Warriors" toy line back in the late '70s was Mazinga

(I think it was called Mazinger over in Japan). It had a lot of

the same type of style elements in its design as the previously-

mentioned robots.

 

IIRC, the anime series that featured Mazinga/Mazinger ran for

a while here in Cincinnati on Channel 64 back when its call

letters were WIII (prior to the change to WSTR).

That's the anime I was trying to think of, Tranzor Z! Thanks,

Mightybec.

 

BTW, the female robot's name was (IIRC) Aphrodite-A. Now that I

think about it, though, that business with the Bosom Of Mass

Destruction was probably why I quit watching the show...

 

In all fairness, though, the live-action giant robot/monster shows

from Japan were just as cheesy in that regard (anybody out there

remember Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot, or Ultraman[/i)

for that matter? Now there was some major Grade-A cheese).
