Original Godaikin Gladiator Voltron II "Abega" (Bandai) *SOLD*

(Sorry, out of stock...SOLD for $245.00) Original Godaikin Gladiator Voltron II "Abega", by Bandai. From 1984...and this one is in MINT-CONDITION, UNOPENED, NEVER PLAYED! Another great offering from yours truly, Mr. Pop Top. Abega is a seriously-cool space jet, formed from the combination of three robots, Alpha, Beta and Gamma. This toy came from a checkered past...originally from a Japanese anime known as “Light Speed Electric God Albegas”, which featured three small humanoid robots who combined to form..."Gladiator Voltron"! Yes, this was proposed to be translated and re-edited into the "Voltron" show, for a segment to become known amongst students of Japanese sci-fi as "Gladiator Voltron: Voltron of the Middle Universe". Three pilots ran Alpha Robo (Black Gladiator), Beta Robo (Blue Gladiator), and Gamma Robo (Red Gladiator) and also were the pilots of three small aircraft: the Jet Alpha, Jet Beta, and Jet Gamma (AL-BE-GA...get it?). These three aircraft were flown through small hatches into the backs of the Gladiators in order to pilot the Gladiators. The three aircraft could also combine into a single jet called the Super Albega. Later, they piloted a different set of small aircraft/robots called the New Jet Alpha/Jetrobo Alpha, New Jet Beta/Jetrobo Beta, and New Jet Gamma/Jetrobo Gamma. They combined into the New Super Albega! Whew! "Gladiator Voltron" was in the works when the interest in "Voltron" in general began to wane amongst American viewers...due to the lack of success in US for the second “Dairugger” Voltron storyline on TV, this third series was never aired in the states. Only one of Matchbox’s “Voltron" toys was ever released from this aborted series (the phenomenal "Voltron II" DX), and of course, this beautiful, diecast, well-made Godaikin robot spaceship (for some reason renamed "Abega", not "Albega"...maybe it was around know, the song: "No "L", no "L", no "L", born is the King of Is-ra-el"....sorry, couldn't resist). A real gem, and it's in immaculate condition, lo, these many years later. Poor, poor "Gladiator Voltron". Maybe it was that "Hey, did you hear about the happy Roman?" joke he told to the corporate suits that REALLY got his show axed from the schedule?! We'll never know. Out of stock.
