Poseidon originally was from the Popy line-up from Bandai as GC-12 in 1975. Poseidon oddly enough is one of my favorite robots. I have a special place in my heart for Getter Robo G robots from watching Force Five Starvengers cartoons when I was a kid. Poseidon really does not do much. The arms move, you can shoot the missiles and he can stand without falling down(that counts for more than you think when you want to display these guys). There are no shooting fists as you normally see in these robots(so I haven’t lost the fists) or transformations. That being said, he is a sturdy, solid, chunk of metal worthy of the Chogokin name.
I like the design and color scheme and I actually had this one when I was a kid. Since Starvengers and Getter Robo were some of my favorite cartoons, so is Poseidon here. The Shogun Warriors were the first robots I had as a kid. I had the Great Mazinga, Dragun, and Poseidon 5″ toys. I also had the two foot Rodan, Godzilla and Great Mazinga. Man, I had a lot of fun with those.
Still waiting for Starvengers to come to Bluray/DVD. I don’t even see a Getter Robo G version on Amazon to see the originals in subtitles which I would prefer now. Till then guess Youtube may be the way to go.
