Space Warrior Baldios

Baldios DX, Takatoku, Japan, 1980

Another "Mecha" design from Japan. The cartoon aired in 1980 - 1981, and was produced by Ashi Productions.This is what Wikipedia says about the robot:

  • Height: 100 meters
  • Weight: 900 tons
  • Flight Speed: Mach 25 in Earth's atmosphere, 30% the speed of light in space
  • Body Components: Pulser Burn (Upper Half), Baldy Prize (Right Leg), Cateranger (Left Leg)
  • Weapons and Powers:
    • Dimensional teleportation into Subspace for up to five minutes.
    • BaldiCutters: A launchable boomerang on each leg.
    • Shoulder Cannons: An energy cannon stored in each shoulder.
    • BaldiMissiles: A missile launcher on the outer section of each leg. A third was developed in the abdomen, but was only used in episode 26.
    • Bald Cutters: A small double edged sword.
    • Pulse Sabers: A large sword stored in the torso. In episode 24 a second is added and both can combine to create a powerful whirlwind.
    • Bald Beam: An energy beam from the diamond on the forehead.
    • BaldiCluster: A chained mace stored in the left leg.
    • Thunder Flash: Energy blasts from the torso that can rival the power of hydrogen bombs.
    • BaldiRoizer: A more powerful version of the Thunder Flash; Baldios charges up with energy to form a destructive barrier and releases the energy at the enemy upon contact.

Heavy Metal, just what I like in a bot...
