Egyptian robot ? Raideen !

Raideen Robot, Popy, Japan,
1970's
God bird, Banpresto ?, China,
1990's
Raideen, Bandai, China,
2011
Raideen (vinyl - medium), Popy, Japan,
1970's
Raideen, Medicom, China,
1990's

If there is a robot that was as cool as Grandizer (Goldorak) - but not as well known in France - it was Raideen. Various versions were made, then and now. The armor and face recalls some ancient pharao of the valley of the Death. That's what you get when Japanese manga and egyptian archeology merge!
