Astekaizer hails from the show Star of Pro-Wrestling: Astekaizer (Pro-Wres No Hoshi Astekaizer), created by Go Nagai. The show premiered in 1976 and was a mix of live action and and animation. It followed the exploits of Hoshi, a professional wrestler who could transform into Astekaizer, a champion of justice. The show lasted 26 episodes, and wrapped up in October of 1977.
This is a small version of the main character - Astekaizer. This one is about 3 inches tall, and mostly metal. You can pull the blades out of his forearms but they are not spring loaded like his bigger brother.
This Astekaiser is sturdier than the others, and stands up well, but suffers from the poor head sculpt.
Still, it is a cool little toy, and a worthy addition to your diecast collection.
