For a long time I've dreamed of it. Today I started crude work on it. Getter Robo G - the 3 fighters that make its three robot forms. There are plenty of pvc 5" figures, and a number of $100+ "limited edition" robots by Bandai in their "soul of chocogun" (sp?) line, but for years all we've ever heard is THE TRANSFORMATION IS IMPOSSIBLE. Well, as seen with the original getter and shin getter toys, you can transform, but you need a seperate trio of ships for each robot due to limitations of current toy technology. Later revisions allowed all three trios to be made into a single trio of ships, but this tripled the price, made transformations even more complex, and in many cases, had parts that had to be detached/removed or even unscrewed. Then there's the nightmare which is Getter Robo G. Even with docking concerns aside, its only just BARELY impossible due to shifting parts. And too many moving parts. Even as a toy, there would be parts rotating and then transfering sections from one moving area to another. This can be seen in the release of "quick-change getter dragun" by Bandai, which had 3 mis-shaped versions of the ships so that they could combine to form the robot Dragun, but I digress. I did these drawings up in windows paint using pictures off ebay of the rare old 70's ships from POPY (POPY didn't become Bandai till later in the 80's). The toys were crude and roughly in the 4" x 4" x 1" size. I refined the designs using screen-captures from the show, along with ebay box-scans of the smaller 1.5" x 1.5" x 0.5" high-quality "included" ships that each come with Dragon/Ryger/Poseidan. As you can see from my drawings, transformation may not be possible, but the whole idea of docking the ships into each other is possible (at least in toy form, providing the back "engine" area was a removable piece). Once I get some further work done maybe I'll release prints for those who want to build up their own Dragun + Ryger + Poseidan ships to go with their Getter Robo G figures. I did cheat a little... the middle and aft-central part of each ship is the same, so only the forward third and the sides/wings is different from one ship to the next. Once complete each ship will have two different rear-end's (one being the traditional engine-exhaust panel, the other being a multi-side insert which would allow the ship to hold/dock with roughly the forward half of the ship that pulls into it.) For Ryger and Poseidan, this means that the wings will have to slide inwards so that the missile-carrying ends line up snugly with the body. (you barely see this happen in the anime cause transformations were done really fast and there was often a blurriness and/or flash of light to help disguise the fact that the docking isn't 100% perfect). Nevermind the "re-shaping" of area's (see below for crude descriptions). :curse: But that aside, who wouldn't want paper versions of the ships that you could, to a degree, dock into each other? Those who do stop-motion animation could then do the same as the anime... show two or all three ships docking into each other, then a flash of light, and then the post-transformation robot. Even if you don't do toy animations, you could always just make these to sit on your shelf near your non-transformation Getter Robo G figures. wall1 Ex. Dragun ("Dragon" in Starvengers) the curved wings on the Dragon shift upwards to become the shoulders. The nose/head of Poseidan fitting in teh back of Ryger, allowing the (cheap 70's silver) ring to become teh black waist-band which seperates the upper body+chest from teh lower waist. Poseidan's wings slide inward and then their missile-shaped ends slide downward and extend to form legs. Ex. Ryger/Liger ("Arrow" in the americanized Starvengers) the wings seperate and move further back, allowing Poseidan's wings/missiles to shift from the vehicle top to mid-vehicle to become the arms Ex. Poseidan (more or less same spelling) Poseidan's wings extend, then fold back along ship sides so that the missiles transfer from teh sides to the back, to become the twin "shoulder missiles". Ryger's wings/missiles slide inwards and then extend downwards as legs.
