Umm... "purist", here. While I actually don't own or like the Gao God/Animus (as far as a repaint), I do know a few things about it regarding the conversion.

  • None of the decals were imported over, which occupy the front of the metal on both shoulders and the front (both inside and outside) of the lower legs. On the lower legs, these were simply replaced with gold paint; though, again, no paint was added to the inside of the lower legs. Whereas on the Deluxe Wild Force Megazord red paint was added to the shoulder armor in place of the decals, none was added to Animus to replace its own.
  • All ABS that had a metallic finish to it on Gao God (Saw Shark's gills & the space between Brown Bison's retracted legs) was replaced with painted equivalents here.
  • Any ABS part that appears gold was originally painted gold as well on Gao God (mostly the detachable bow & Brown Bison's horns)

These changes were identical to the ones on the Deluxe Wild Force Megazord. All molds on the Black Lion and Leopard Ancient Wild Zords are identical to the Red Lion and White Tiger Wild Zords; though I'm not sure about changes in paint apps though, since it's kinda hard finding good clear pictures of the Japanese ver. online

Oh, BTW, despite what appears on the front of Animus' box, Gao God never used Gao SawShark's tail as a weapon; depending instead on his long saw-like nose for close-range use. And when his nose was paired with the bow from his head (which neither toy can recreate), you got the Tenchu Power Arrow finisher.

Short comment...

The position of the wings in front of the Animus Megazord should be parallel to the shoulders of the zord itself. Just an observation.

And I do own the Japanese version as well.

Naw- they look okay. So

Naw- they look okay. So long as the wings are even extended on Gao God, it looks fine. Thing is, if they're perfectly horizontal, then you can't bend the arms forward!

Weirdness...

It's actually weird that in the back of the box of the DX Gao God, the toy's head can turn sideways but the actual toy cannot...and it's quite sad that you can't even replicate the Tenchu Power Arrow finisher...

That's just my style when I post. I can see words better when they are in bold since I'm nearsighted.

You have it backwards

The horned animal in the ORIGINAL set was the Bison; this one is the Bull or Buffalo.

Just nitpicking.
