Gaiking Mecha Madness

It seemed at first Gaiking's design in the new "Gaiking: Legend of Daiku Maryu" was going to be pretty much left alone. But it seems he's going to get a little bit of a gimmick upgrade to bring him, arguably, up to date with the times.

Gaiking attaches "Stinger" to his back to form Sky Gaiking, a flying mode. "Serpent" is attached to his right arm to form Buster Gaiking, a sure-kill mode. "Crab Bunker" attaches to his body to form Diver Gaiking, an aquatic mode. Daimonji Hakase would be proud, if they haven't killed him off.

Toys? It's a kids' show.
