I stated on Friday’s post about the Shogun Warriors TV commercial that my brain is going into overdrive with memories about the classic Mattel line of toys because of the upcoming Pacific Rim film. I have a feeling you’ll be getting your fill of it this week so I truly hope you’ll bear with me as I trot out some of the great Shogun Warriors products, like the 1978 Colorforms set featuring the Great Mazinga, Raydeen, Dragun!
Now for what it is worth, the Great Mazinga was always my favorite of the Shogun Warriors…though there is something to be said about Raydeen firing bird projectiles from his stomach and Dragun launching giant battle axes!
