I'm not sure if they were in the 80's or 70's, but they were about 2 feet high and there were at least three styles I can remember. One of them shot off his fist like a rocket, and one shot missles from his shoulders. They were made of a relatively durable plastic.

I believe these were late 70's right around the time Star Wars was released, but they resembled Voltron so much I'd say it's close enough. I'm pretty sure I have some of the 'mini' versions of these in storage. They were about the size of the typical action figure and their bodies were made of die cast metal while the arms, legs and head were plastic. Only the arms and head moved however and as I recall the arms did not move independantly either. I never could convince my folks how desperately I *needed* one of the big ones, LOL.

These toys were awesome. They predated Voltron by a few years. They also had an americanized japanese cartoon. It was called Force Five. It featured a bunch of the robots and everyday had a different one on it. My favorite was The Starvengers which featured Star Dragon, the last one on the right in the picture. I also remember they had a Godzilla shogun warrior and Rodan as well. God I loved these!!!

I remember that I was visiting my cousin in Hartford and they were rich. His dad bought us both one. I had Raydeen and I forgot which one he had. Anyway, we were playing with them and they're fists shot off so we started shooting them at each other. Long story short, Raydeen's fist connected with my cousins right eye and he fell over a chair. He gets up crying. "we were like 6 years old." Half hour later he has a huge black eye. His dad seeing this, breaks open one of the fists to see what the hell is inside these things. Ends up, they are weighted with big F@*&IN sand bags. The moral of this story is, actually there is no moral to this story.

Oh my God! I had a friend who's dad was a dentist, closest thing to rich we knew at the time. Anyways, he had like three of the big shogun warriors and I remember trading all of my G.I. Joes (the 12" ones, dumb move right?) for One Shogun Warrior, it looked like the middle one in the picture. It was Awesome. It fired rockets, etc. before they banned that sort of toy.

I had one of these things kind of as a hand-me-down. An older cousin had two of the Mazingas, and he gave me the "safe" version. They rocked! They also lasted forever, even when left outside year round.

My parents bought them for me when I was a kid.I had rodan,mazinga,& godzilla.I simply loved these toys.But unfortunatly my two sisters broke them.I had always dreamed of owning them again,& then I found e-bay & bought them all back & they were'nt cheap.P.S I recently noticed That Rodan Is getting harder & harder to find.I am always looking for another one in the box. They just don't make great toys like these anymore.

I had raydeen when I was a kid and recently bought one on Ebay. Then I decided that what the hell, I want all the ones I didn't have as a kid and have since bought 2 Draguns and a Mazinga. they are hard to find and expensive when complete, but ultimately worth it.

Recently I've been hunting through my old bedroom, revisiting my childhood toys. My game has been to find some of the classics for my son. I stumbled upon a single figure from my old Dairugger Voltron set. My parents didn't have much money when I was a kid. I spent a whole summer on an island in Maine collecting recyclable cans with the express desire to buy the GoLion Voltron set. One kid in school had it, and I thought it was the greatest toy of all time. However, when I got back to the mainland the store was all out of the GoLion. Being an impulsive 11 year old, I threw-down my hard earned eighty dollars on the Dairugger set. I remember countless hours of enjoyment. Now, looking back, and as I try and recover the rest for my son, I think my impulsiveness turned into a blessing, because the Dairugger set is more rare, and my son loves anything rocket/robotic/space. The lions would never have translated to him.
