It’s an ugly little Raideen, isn’t it?
This toy comes from the 1986 gashapon “Deformed Series” This series was broken down into four parts:
- Nostalgic Robo
- Getter Robo G
- Mazinger Z
- Tetsujin 28
- Nostalgic Monsters
- King Ghidorah
Therefore, Raideen comes from Deformed Series 1 – Nostalgia Robo. Each robot in the series was available in either Red, Yellow or Grey and came unassembled in a clear capsule.
Assembly is easy, and once complete you can move the arms and legs a little. It requires paint to look like the picture shown in the included pamphlet.
Small and unessential unless you are a Raideen freak like me. I thought that this would be an interesting exercise in cataloging an otherwise unremarkable line.
