    While scavenging through all of the clearance items at my local Wal-Mart I found this cheap DVD ($.75) entitled Defenders of Space...or something close. Anyhow, on the back of the case it had a screen shot of a character that looked almost identical to Generation One Inferno. The head obviously was a little different, but still close to Inferno's. The only other difference I could spot was he had a black eagle on his chest, right underneath the windshield.

    Anyone have any idea what the series is? It appeared to be old Japanese animation and from what I've watched on the DVD so far this robot doesn't appear to transform. It seems more like a mech suit as it carries the 2 main heroes of the series.

    I'll see about adding a scan of the back of the DVD case later on this week.

    IIRC, it was just some bad cartoon that used regurgitated animation cells from other series.

    I also remember people saying it was really, really bad.

    Yeah, this has been brought up before. It's an old Korean anime, I think.

    I bought it a few months ago. Haven't had time to watch it yet. Sounds like I'm not missing much.

    THANK YOU.

    I'd much rather see the Dancing Soundwave video again rather then all the "Mai E-wayng iz bigger den yohrz" posts...not everyone lives here on the boards you know :rolleyes:

    One of the other DVDs they released, "Space Thunder Kids" had clips from a show that was seriously ripping off Tron. Does anyone know more about the animated show these clips were taken from?

    I haven't gotten around to finishing Space Thunder Kids. It's so friggin awful it's great! Yeah, it's got Zod from TRON in it. Not only that, but apparently he's a space Nazi or something. He does the Nazi salute several times in his first scene. Also, Captain Tim rules all! XD

    I got the DVD thanks to Chaos Muffin. The dub is so bad it's great.
    flywheels, I believe Phoenix King transforms, have you watched it to the end?

    Joke or not, you're a jerk for even posting that comment. Sorry guys, I do have a life outside my hobby so I don't "live" on these boards reading every single thread that is posted. I was just curious as to what I had found. All one had to do was politely direct me to a link of the original thread regarding this subject matter.

    DC was merely mocking those posters who already did that, not you.
