Gao Knight

This reminds me, I wish I've gotten myself a Gao Knight even though only 2 Power Animals were recolored. It's so hard to find one nowadays.

Yeah, Gao Knight has a different head, though the one on the super-rare Gao Ape is just a repaint of Gao Gorilla's. (No one knows what combo Gao Ape was involved in, nor what other PAs were involved.)

As I explain in a later

As I explain in a later video (Gao Falcon's), all I want/need to make Gao Knight is Gao Kong, and that suits me just fine. I don't need a super-rare Gao Ape, which has the exact same head for Gao Muscle that Gao Gorilla does... 'cept in gray.

The eagle

The fact that GaoEagle can turn into two completely different components is one of the best tricks in Sentai mecha toy history. I love mecha that can take on differently-functioning forms--Dragon Caesar as a chest or a mantle, the double Megazord system from Timeranger (complete with a double power-up!), etc.

Gotta love those

Gotta love those single-component multi-mode mecha, huh? And, BTW, how awesome is it that Gao Eagle can make part of Gao Muscle even though it is not required in order to make the combo work (i.e. Gao Muscle Striker)?

Don't forget about King Pyramider too.

And Dekabase Robo

Dekabase Robo (my personal favorite carrier/base mecha) might qualify since he has 3 modes of transformation - base, carrier and robot form.

Yeah- when I shot these, there were a few details I wasn't able to straighten out ahead of time, such as the chain, and waist adapter piece for Gao Muscle Striker.

great Thrift Store find

Great Find! That's how I found my Dairugger/ Voltron I, in a giant baggie at the thriftstore for $5.00.

I pass up so much current Super Sentai items at thrift stores all the time. Sometime I wonder what I pass up!

Sounds like you got the bootleg-equivalent of Gao Cracker (Gao Gorilla, Gao Eagle, Gao Bison, Gao Shark, & Gao Tiger).
