    I used to love Battle of the planets when I was about 4 years old, I caught the repeats on BBC tv and fell in love with the G5 god phenix and all its detachable vehicles, alas the only toy I ever got was the larger God Phenix which looked like an eagle, having not seen this in the the cartoon itself I was a little gutted.

    I also loved X-bomber and Ulysses 31 but again couldnt get the toys so had to resort to making them from lego, anyone here ever own any of these kick ass ships or figures ?

    Never had the toys but used to love the show. Also used to love Ulysses 31 because of the combing ship gimmick, dunno if there were ever toys for that show - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgJ4qYP44Rk

    BOTP was by far my favorite show as a child and over the years I have acquired some cool toys. Everything I have are based off the original series. Never got into the gatchaspartan toys. My favorite piece is a MIMB Ken Owashi(Mark) Mego doll from Japan. I'll try to post some pics latter.

    X-Bomber's English Translation Star Fleet is finally getting a DVD release this year - 30/06 in the UK.

    I was frustrated that you couldn't find the Ulysses toys in the UK and the BoTP ones didn't appear in the Cartoon. Twas only later I discovered about subsequent series of Gatchaman.

    A search for X-Bomber on ebay will periodically throw up the toys - X-Bomber, various Dai-X toys.... There's even some model kits - got pictures of an imperial fighter here somewhere.

    I've never had the pleasure of watching Gatchaman/Battle of the Planets, but that princess sure looks hot! Then again, I think that the little blue telekinetic girl of Ulysses 31 is very hot, so what do I know.

    Wahey!!!! scored the Unifive G5!! it arrived today and is pure love although I've left the little vehicles in the box because they will doubtless get lost! what an awesome bit of diecast goodness, now if they had only done this when I was 4 :) 

    As for X-Bomber I would kill to get an actual X-bomber toy but all I ever find are damaged or missing the fins :(

    Yes, That toy IS pure love for sure. Leaving the little vehicles in the box isn't such a bad idea. I lost the blue race car for about a week and came really close to ordering a new Phoenix just to have it back. Luckily I found it.

    There is a 2nd version with a more cartoon accurate paint scheme I wouldn't mind getting. I do not like the colors as much but it comes with a kick ass replica of Marks/Kens weapon.
