Hey there folks! It's the month of December-- the year is at an end, and the first post by yours truly WSX is a rather short one. Been keeping up with some busy and other entertaining ativities that life throws at us, and thus I do sincerely apologise for the lack of update to my blog over the past few weeks. Mainly because I was very pre-occupied with volunteering efforts at the recently concluded Aquarium Fair 2010, which was held concurrently over the course for four days at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center. Tiring but an all round stellar experience, hanging out with fellow like minded individuals who share the passion and commitment for the tropical fish rearing hobby. LOL. Enough about that, then...dont want to breo you gys with droll details! Onward to exploring the other passion which I have unfairly 'neglected' over the couple of weeks-- what else is there but to come back and talk about collecting Mecha and cool Japanese toys?!


Not being the stable of the Go-Nagai Anime Super-Mecha genere, Daltanius for me is a rather obscure televised event in that there were no distinct memories of ever watching the show as a child. Not that it mattered, as most Super-Mecha shows of that period had meant something deep and wonderful for eahc and every child growing up in the 'Golden Age' of Japanese giant robot cartoons. The uber-awesome team of toy engineers at Bandai Japan has managed once again to turn an obscure mecha into a fine piece of art.

Anime and Manga Portal

Future Robo Daltanious (未来ロボ ダルタニアス, Mirai Robo Darutaniasu?) was an anime series that aired from 1979 to 1980. There were 47 episodes. There are a lot of alternate spellings for the name, which includes "Dartanius", "D'Artagnas", "Daltanias" and "Dartanias". But the correct spelling should be "Daltanious" which was commonly used on the Japanese merchandise and packaging for the toys.[1] The show is one of the mecha shows which was and still remains very popular amongst Asian countries.

It is the year 1995. Earth has been conquered by an alien army from the star cluster known as the Akron. The cities of Earth have been destroyed, and the remaining survivors live in harsh shanty towns and villages. Kento, a war orphan, hides within a cave along with his companions in order to escape some bandits. In the cave, they find the secret base of Doctor Earl, who was an inhabitant of the planet Helios, a planet conquered by the Akron. Doctor Earl then fled to Earth, bringing with him the greatest achievement in Helian technology: the super robot Daltanius, whose power is increased when combined with the intelligent lion robot, Beralios. Doctor Earl entrusts the fight for Earth to Kento, who happens to be a descendant from the long disappeared Helian royal line."

It remains to be seen if the lure of obtaining a rather rare collection piece that is the chogokin series would appeal to a casual non-fan of the genere of Bandai toys proves too strong to resist. Just to remind all you hardcore collectors out there, that there is the rather draining prospect of newer and much more anticipated Transformers releases slated for the coming 2011 year, that owinng those newer Takaratomy/ Hasbro releases would mean that the priority would surely be unmistakable. To all Chogokin fans, this ones over to you guys! Looks just as awesome as the Daltanius Mecha can come!
