Godzilla and the Shogun Warriors

That title sounds like the coolest cartoon we never got but it's just the contents of the 1979 Mattel catalog, this time focusing on all the cool Shogun Warriors and Godzilla merchandise at the time. Launching fists, pre transformable mecha and Godzilla gets himself a gang.

I love, love, love, LOVE the Shogun Warriors. In fact, though I have nary a toy from my youth, I do have a couple of those little tiny metal Shoguns. My favorite one, and I cannot find it anywhere, is the one used by Japanese Spider-Man (or "Supaidaaman"), Leopardon. I think in the Shogun line that was rendered, in Engrish fashion, as "Leopoldon."

Shogun Warriors... what a weird name for giant robots. Somebody at Mattel must have thought “Well, Shogun is a Japanese word, so let’s use that.”
