Micronauts (1977)

Released in 1977, Force Commander was molded in a bright shiny white with red highlights and Baron Karza was all black with red highlights, as evil as it gets. They were a boxed item packed in a styrofoam tray. The magnetic ball/socket joints allowed the figure to have many points of articulation. He was also compatible with the 5mm peg system, and came with 2 white universal magnetic ball joints which helped with the magno interchangeability.
As always more pictures are available at my Website.

Daiku Maryu Gaiking - TOEI Animation 1976

The Space Dragon is the winner of the war against the Black Horror Army. This mighty machine, introduced by Prof. Daimonji at the Houston Conference and completed on March 12 1971, after 11 years of work, is both a transport, for pilots and machines, and a combat fortress suited for the war against Darius’ Army.

Two propulsive systems grant the Space Dragon the ability to act in every environment on Earth and in outer space. As a transport, the Space Dragon carries the three parts of the Gaiking and the Skyler, the Nesser and the Buzzler. For fighting purposes, it relies on a powerful arsenal and its passive defense mechanisms. This spaceship satisfies all requirements of its crew: beyond personnel’s flats, there are also a kitchen, an operating-theatre, an archive, a projection room and a foundry too.
The most interaction with the machine happens in the control room, under the enormous main screen that overhangs all controls and indicators the navigator needs to steer the ship with the aid of the main computer, which is at the head of every mechanism inside the Space Dragon and provides Prof. Daimonji with a invaluable tool of analysis.
When not on a mission, the Space Dragon is kept in an artificial basin, located under the cape on which is the Omaezaki lighthouse: for emergency situations, a second basin is available inside an underwater cave near Okashima.

Grendizer Saga - Update #5

This time it's not been a hard work to model this part of the Robot because I started from an already made Grendizer model modelled by Ricscan 3D, so please take a look to his website.
In the pictures below you can see his head on the left side.
I've downloaded his model in a 3ds format file and started to re-align every component each other, then I cutted it to obtain an half model.

I've remodelled the horns (side and top of the head), the neck and reduced the number of faces in the rear area.

Head side has been redone with a more curved profile. Small changes for the nose and mouth area. At the end all have been smoothed with the "Soften edges" command.
