    looks like a combination of dunbine and sentai.

    the little ninja guy can use the eagle as a hang glider...its a pretty huge toy, you can see it's scale against my 17" dell...the wingspan is like 1.5 feet

    this one was made in '97 by olympus, korea....olympus made some transformers KO back in the day and i'm trying to figure out if this is an original toy or if it's a KO of something.

    the box reads "super k" and the guys name is redwing.

    SOLVED THANKS TO GAOKAISER...THIS IS FROM NINJA SENSHI TOBIKAGE

    I ahve seen that in Peru but as a KO. It was named something like "Ninja Robo" (How original :p  ) but since it was a KO i doubt it was the real name.

    oh man, i was emailed pictures of that snarl and wanted one immediately because its fourstar.

    i managed to get one with all leg covers and weapons but it's missing one stupid, tiny horn that just pulls out.

    trying to find another horn or preferably one in box.

    i just found the box and updated the original post with more info...still wondering if this is an original mold or a KO of something.

    i found this over at the wholesale district area in skid row, LA....my adventure there today featured some strung out guy asking me if i had speed and driving by this really tall slightly attractive prostitute.

    the figure was sitting on a really high shelf, gathering dust, with saran wrap covering the figure in its insert...the owner called me and told me he found the box about an hour ago.

    AWESOME! thanks so much.

    these did have a bandai-ish feel to it but the dunbine-like legs, head, and back fin things threw me off.

    thanks so much for the great info!

    and great just confirmed from joshb's site that Ninja Senshi Tobikage was known as "super K" in korea so this is a licensed toy.
