METALTECH05 : GATTAIGER
This is the 5th release in the popular die-cast Metaltech line from HL Pro, Japan.
Uchu Enban Daisenso (宇宙円盤大戦争 Uchū Enban Daisensō?), also known as 'Battlefield of The Space Saucers' and 'The Great Battle of the Flying Saucers', is a 1975 animated short film created by Go Nagai
The movie is considered to be the prototype for the future anime TV series UFO Robot Grendizer, which premiered that same year.
The Main hero ‘Duke Fleed’ has to escape his planet while under attack by the Yaban forces. He manages to steal GATTAIGER, an experimental giant robot with spacer and flees to Earth, pursued by General Blaki.
Duke fleed has to confront the Yaban forces on Earth and loses his fiance Tellona in the process.
Unlike the Robot Grendizer, the most powerful weapon in Uchu Enban Daisenso is not the robot, ROBOIZER, but the spacer, called THE FLYING TIGER. It's powerful capabilities include faster than light flight, Spider Spin (a buzzsaw mode used by the Flying Tiger), Needle Shower (needle missiles from the Flying Tiger), Space Thunder (three lasers from each side of the Flying Tiger), and Thunder Focus (combining all six beams into one).
METALTECH05: GATTAIGER is a die cast set including the robot and the spacer with different options to change its look. As in the Anime, the robot Roboizer can be poised in many ways, docked or undocked in the FLYING TIGER, using exchangeable parts.
