Too cool!

You're too cool Dave!

Tekkaman has always been one of my favorite characters although the US version of the anime's Dub was sooo badly done! So bad it made the show real funny to watch. I picked up my VHS copy as a budget tape at K-Mart all those years ago, although I don't think I have it anymore.

As far as I know the show was never aired in Los Angeles

If you have the Pegas Jumbo I would love to see the review

Cheers!

Is this Tekkaman...

...in any way related to a character of the same name from a later anime series also called "Tekkaman Blade" in the mid-to-late '90s? I only know it because it was dubbed in the US on the then-newly-created UPN TV network as "Teknoman", but failed to finish its American run for whatever reason. Even though I'm certain the dub was simplified for kids, I liked that show!
.
The T-shapped visor is similar between them, as is the double-sided blade weapon and color scheme (white, red, gold/yellow, and green).

Pegas

Yeah, I have the Jumbo Pegas and planned to get working on a review for it this week. I'll publish it sometime next weekend probably.

Yeah, I guess Tekkaman Blade was a remake of Tekkaman. I never saw either show, though.

I remember Tekkaman

My dad rented it (my local video store had all the good stuff) and the dub....good lord was it HILARIOUS. It was mostly unintentionally funny, since Tekkaman....was like Adam West.

SPACE LANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
