    Hi, I've been trying for years to identify a mecha toy a friend of mine had. I remember that it's head was a lion's head and it's face was inside the lion's mouth. I remember that you could assemble a yellow lion with the mecha's head and some other parts.

    The closest I found was Voltron, but the head was not exactly like him, voltron does not have a mane.

    The lion was very similar to this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QrY1w81sAwQ/Th-ge5-Dp2I/AAAAAAAAAcw/6iJb9SB_YiQ/s1600/landlion.jpg

    Perhaps Ga Orn from Brave Da Garn: (On a side note....apparently Ga Orn is some sort of shorthand for gay porn or something...quite surprised by my image search.....)

    He says the robot head is inside the lions head, so it wouldn't be GaoGaiGar. I was even thinking Daltanius or Liverobo, but they also have their lion heads on their chest.

    I've always been leery of Goldran. That's a LOT of gold plastic at a time when GPS was rampant. Not saying it will...but it easily looks like it could.
