    This is not my toy or my image. Saw this posted on 4chan and the robot looks...familiar to me for some reason. I have to know what it is!

    It's Mach Eagle, who is the main torso of the giant robot Ganbaruger, from the Eldoran series by the same name. Made by Tomy in 1992. There's a couple of KOs out there, not sure if that is a real one or not, from that picture the accurate head colouring and chrome but lack of holographic sticker makes me think of the 1993-94 full size KO that came out when Power Rangers was at its most popular.

    You can find out more in the Brave thread:

    I figured it might be either Brave or Tomy

    I had that 93/4 KO bought from Tescos in the UK. The mechanism in the elephant broke as soon as I looked at it, v poor quality plastic.

    Ye recognised Ganbarugar's head as soon as I saw it. Saw the Tomy DX Great Ganbarugar sitting in a store window in Hong Kong. Its HUGE.

    Ah yes, I thought it looked familiar. There was a KO released in the US as a "star warrior."
