    In the late '70s/early '80s, kids in the New England area were introduced to Starvengers.
    Starvengers was a English dubbed version of Getter Robo G that aired on Tuesdays
    as part of "Force Five". Force Five consisted of five Japanese animated shows
    (mostly giant robot shows) and each show was aired on a specific day of the week.
    Dangard Ace aired on Mondays, Starvengers aired on Tuesdays, Spaceketeers aired
    on Wednesdays, Grandizer aired on Thursdays and Gaiking aired on Fridays.

    For those not familiar with the Starvengers or Getter Robo G, it was a show where
    three jets, piloted by people, combine to form a robot. There was the blue jet, red jet
    and orange jet. What made this show different from other giant robot shows was that
    there was actually three different robot versions and which robot was formed was
    dependent on each jets position in the combination. Orange jet on top, red jet in
    the middle and blue jet on the bottom would form Star Poseidon. Blue jet on top,
    orange jet in the middle and red jet on the bottom would form Star Arrow.
    Red jet on top, blue jet in the middle and orange jet on the bottom would form Star Dragon.

    These are my Starvengers.
    Star Dragon is made using Generations Thunderwing
    and his minicon partner Star Hatchet is made using Power Core Combiners Chopster.
    Star Arrow is made using Hunt for the Decepticons Terradive
    and his minicon partner Star Grindor is made using Power Core Combiners Throttler.
    Star Poseidon is made using Revenge of the Fallen Dirge
    and his minicon partner Star Trident is made using Universe Terradive.

    It was obvious that I wouldn’t be able to match the show’s combinations to make the robots,
    so I made each jet transform into their respective robots. Some would call that a cheat,
    but I challenge anyone to made a combiner that works the way the TV show combinations.

    As an extra, I made it so that the 3 minicon partners could combine into a jet-like
    ALT form so they would not have to attach to the jets.

    I also created Team Star Fire Sword.
    Minicon Star Draco is made using Energon Wreckage.
    Minicon Star Archer is made using Energon Scattor.
    Minicon Star Neptune is made using Energon Skyboom.
