"We are really excited to aquire the license for this classic series" said Bill Bebe, vice president of marketing. "The Shogun Warrior line is loved by millions, and we feel that todays kids will love the series as much as kids did back in the 1970s".
The lineup will include such favorites as Great Mazinger, Dragun, Poseidon, Raider, Combattra and Gaiking. These toys are based on the smash it Japanese line "Soul of Chogokin", only modified for American Audiences. "We had to remove all the metal, firing fists, and any sharp edges to conform to US safety standards" said Fred Garvin, product manager. "But the kids won't care, they will get to play with giant robots once again. Sure the collectors will complain, but they kind of scare us anyway".
