Mach Baron, Red Baron ?

I never knew if these half-robots / half-japanese superheroes were related in any way. Thee two are good examples of KAIJU, vinyl blown inexpensive toys that gave the Japanese kids the possibility to play with their favorite characters without having to ruin their parent's wallet for the expensive die-cast counterpart... Most KAIJU's are monster characters from one of the Ultraman, Spectreman, ... ("live sentai") shows, but sometimes a robot made the cut also.
