This is an exsquisite toy, definitely. I love these Toho Robot Heroes for their beauty and for being an inspiration for ROBOCOP.

Work of art

Better than recent Armour trans (for me).

I've grown up with VR Troopers and Big Bad Beetleborgs, I initially thought that was it until I saw the Metal Hero series. I got Chogokin Sharivan (Namrood), I'll eventually got Namrood is chances are possible.

>>> If the back of the box is to be believed, a similar model of Sharivan was also released in America.

Technically, no.

The Namrood toy shown on the box isn't a model of Space Sheriff Sharivan, but is basically just the same Space Sheriff Shaider toy color-swapped red instead of blue. Design-wise, the two toys are absolutely identical apart from color. Which also means that Namrood doesn't actually LOOK like Sharivan at all apart from the color.

I got both of them for Christmas as a kid about 25 years ago (and I believe I still have both of them packed away somewhere - I'd have to look), because my mom found them in a local 5-and-10 store and assumed I'd like generic space robot toys (and she was right, I did). I had absolutely no idea what they were, though - it wasn't until only a few years ago that I actually stumbled across Space Sheriff Shaider online and recognized it.

Very cool! I love Metal

Very cool! I love Metal Heroes/VR Troopers so this fascinates me that toys of Shaider and Sharivan came out long before VR Troopers did. cool!
