Brave Series Guardion

Takara struck a cooperative deal with the animation studio Sunrise (known for its mecha series, most notably Gundam) to develop a new franchise and set of toy lines. The franchise, in fact, would play a key role in the reintroduction of the Super Robot genre to the Japanese mainstream in the 1990s. Before Brave Gaogaigar, there was many other brave series robots.

From the vintage animation series "Brave of the Sun Fighbird." Here's one of the combiners from the series. Bad news, I don't have a complete set, Im still in search of Guard Wing so currently I can't merge to form Super Guardion.

The basic components to form Guardion:
All three of these cars transform into individual robots and also merge and form Guardion
Guard Star: Police car



Guard Fire: Fire engine


 Guard Rescue : Ambulance

The robot modes are pretty basic with minimal articulation much like most vintage robots.


 Guardion stands roughly 12 inches tall when combined, what I disliked, is Guardion lacks guns or weapons or worse still, maybe mine is lacking the guns or weapons.


Guardion is made up the 3 robots, the headsculpt is much like Optimus Prime with a twist.


I hope Guardwing flys my way, wish me luck.....plenty of luck.....please god...please god....

  1. Funny you should say that the heads looks like Optimus (cuz, well, it does lol). The amubulance also looks incredibly similar to Ratchet.
