    The anime started screening in the early 80s (83 or 84?) and is pretty depressing IMO! LOL! I'm surprised that Japanese toy companies such as Bandai has yet to give us updated toy version of the mecha along with die-cast etc.

    The "S.I.C" (which is famous for Kamen Riders) spin-off doesn't count IMO as the figures were redesigned until they look er, organic.

    However the designs from the series were really original - which can be seen in "modern" anime. Example, Escaflowne (setting) and Code Geass (setting and some of the attacks the slash harken especially). I watched the latter but not the former so I can't comment to much.
