Koji

I really love Koji's role in Grendizer. He totally chafes at being in this crappy little UFO, but hey, he designed the damn thing. He's also the one who got Mazinger Z destroyed in the first place. The frenemy relationship he has with Duke Fleed is hilarious. Also, Duke is an alien and he brought his robot with him from his home planet so it's not like the Photonic Institute people built it and just gave it to someone else!

Awesome. I totally dig the pop-up innards and attachable arm things.

And hey, Koji still basically saves the day in UFO Robo Grendizer vs. Great Maz, having to hold his own without a robot while the pilot of Grendy is off necking instead of beating up alien invaders.

Awesome. One day, I swear

Awesome. One day, I swear i'm selling off my GX-04S and getting some nice-shape PA Grendizer items.

I love the TFO on the show. It's one of my favorite vehicles in 70's anime. Maybe it's because it's so derided by Grendizer fans. Maybe it's because Koji gets "demoted" and this is his ride. Maybe it's because it's so 50's/70's wacky. Or I'm crazy. Or a nice mix of all of these things.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I think TFOs should be yellow.

I'm with The Big R! But I

I'm with The Big R!

But I also agree with Dave: this thing *really* should be yellow...and there oughtta be at least one missile launcher on this thing like in the cartoon.

Incidentally, High Dream is coming out with a diecast TFO that's a nice shade of cartoon-accurate yellow! Doubt it has any gimmicks, though. :/

Might have to pick up a beater vintage TFO and just paint it yellow! Best of both worlds!
