    That's the action figure of the combined mode of Drago and Servo from "Super Human Samurai Cyber Squad." ("Gridman" in Japan)

    Good God, it's like 75% of the figures people want identification on are from that line.

    It is a somewhat obscure 90's line.

    I remember it well, but I could never find 75% of the toys from the line even when it was new in stores.

    They were either hard to find, scalped, or stock rarely even when it was new. You would have thought going into a store that the toys they had from this line were remnants of a clearanced toyline from years past but no, it was new stuff just in shitty supply and if they ever had any more appear on the shelves, it was nothing but the exact same stuff just in larger numbers.

    About 90% of that line is just hard as hell to find and worth a pretty penny just because IT WAS ALWAYS IMPOSSIBLE to find anything besides the action figure of the evil purple & black robed main villain or the 3 main heroes.

    I've spent forever trying to hunt down the small PVC figures of the kaiju (not the action figures and their inexplicable weapons aside from Skorn), and they're either nowhere to be found or still being scalped today.

    It's a shame that more people don't have access or knowledge of the SSSS/Gridman toyline.

    Maaaaaaaaaan, I wanted Drago when I was little but for some reason I could never find him.

    I did have Servo, and Zenith though I can't recall what became of them...think I might've ended up giving them away to family.

    No. We definitely got it over here. In fact I used to have the smaller combining Drago and Servo. The one which has the non poseable servo (it has arms and I think head thats it.
