1980's Classic Robot Anime Space Warrior Baldios Returns as Stylish Plastic Model Kit

The anime's 117-minute compilation film is available on Crunchyroll

 

 

From its plastic model kit brand "MODEROID," Good Smile Company will release "MODEROID Baldios" inspired by the main giant robot in Ashi Productions' classic robot anime Space Warrior Baldios aired in Japan in 1980. The price for the 180mm-tall item is 7, 800 yen (including tax/about 74 US dollars) and its schceduled shipping date is March 2021.

 

The TV anime series Space Warrior Baldios was originally planned to be produced for a total of 39 episodes, but only 31 episodes were actually aired in Japan at the time. When it was canceled, the production of its 32nd to 34th episodes was already completed. Those unaired footages were later included in the compilation film of the same title released in December 1981.   

 

This new Baldios plastic model is sculpted in a realistic style just like in the anime. By replacing some parts, the kit can reproduce the combined form of Baldios by the three machines - Pulser Burn, Baldi Prize, and Cateranger-. The set also includes the robot's main weapons - two Pulse Sabers, Shoulder Cannons, and the Baldiguard Shield.
