Here’s one that I just got from Ebay – brand new in box for 45 dollars- Ricochet. This is basically the same body as Jazz but he’s black. I don’t believe this character was in the cartoon and I don’t recall seeing him as a kid but I’m glad to have him. I now have both Porsche 911 robots.
Ricochet & Jazz – Transformers Generation 1 G1 Hasbro
Starvengers was one of my favorite anime early on. It was a lot better than Super Friends on Saturday mornings which I loved, but Starvengers has fared the test of time much better than Super Friends. These cartoons came out with Force Five, but I unfortunately did not see those cartoons. I will have to check those out. Maybe the OVAs have subtitles. It would be good to see the Getta Robos kick ass on the Pandemonium Empire again. Sure the bad guys were super cheesy, but it was still so much fun to watch.
Among Shogun Warriors robots this was my least favorite, but I am glad to have it to complete my set of Getta Robo robots. Probably just the color scheme on this one. The plastic has this odd yellowing I have never seen before. Odd, just noticed now I do not have the red missiles shown on the box.
Since I have the most of the Shogun Warriors, I can pop in a picture of them together for a group photo into this post later. Pop in a comment below and I will get to it a little quicker. ***
Here’s a new one I just got from Ebay – Skids. The original came out as part of the “Diaclone” series (pre-Transformers) back in the 80’s. I vividly remember seeing this as a kid in Japan while on vacation in 1983. I didn’t think too much of them because I was intent on getting the big Godaikin robots. Anyway, I took him out of the box and put on a few of his stickers so that he would look good for his picture. I have left all the accessories in the box because I don’t want to lose them.
Here’s the Gundam Rose 4.5″ inch from G Gundam representing Neo France. This was another one I got as part of a Craigslist lot.
Here’s the Shining Gundam 4.5″ robot from G Gundam representing Neo China. This was another piece I got from a large Craigslist lot. I also have the 7 inch version as well. There is also a big deluxe version but I don’t have that one.
Here’s the battle scarred version of the Gundam Nataku from Gundam Wing. The Cartoon Network Toonami releases. The picture on the bottom is the “undamaged” version.
Here’s the “Battled Scarred” Sandrock Gundam from G Gundam. I also have the “undamaged” version – the 2nd image below.
Here’s another carded Gundam I got from Craigslist – this time the Mummy Gundam representing Egypt. I never had this one as I never really liked the character but I’m glad I got him as part of the lot as I wouldn’t have spent money on him otherwise.
