Zollmen Mad Baron: Ganbaron tribute

Yet another Mad Baron, and this one’s a tribute to Ganbaron the pilot of one of my all time favorite super robots Daibaron (big baron) . I have to say, this Zollmen guy really gets it as far as I’m concerned. Meka Goji head under his dome, Jumbo Machinder XX arm attachment (another fav of mine), Ultraman building?, missile firing pins sculpted into the arms, homage to Mach / Red Baron and last but not least the quintessential metallic silver katakana waist belt with BOLD lettering. Love it ALL. Took me a bit to warm up to this guys work, but I have to say we have very similar taste. See gallery for more pics.

Ganbaron (小さなスーパーマン ガンバロン Chīsana Sūpāman Ganbaron?) was a 1977 Japanese tokusatsu live action television show featuring Japan’s own version of American superhero Superman.

  1. I love the hell out of this! I assume this guy is out of print and hard to find. Is this a special edition with the cube head and machinder fist? Must have!
