Dragonar Kits

I love anime, especially robot animes from the ’80s. I finally got a chance to see a (badly fansubbed) copy of an anime called “Metal Armor Dragonar” and loved it! The mech designs are excellent and seem to be from the same hand that gave us the mecha in Layzner, Gundam F-91 and Gundam Seed. The use of flight packs, the high rear leg/heavy foot skirting and general “gas-maskishness” of the bad guy fodder machines are common traits to all of these machines.

When I found out that there were kits of Dragonar’s many mecha, I despaired at ever finding them. They were first made in 1987, so how am I to get them now in 2015? Simple! Hobbywave.com had them all, and I got the owner of McCormick’s to order them for me (they were his distributor). So, 28 years after the show first aired, I managed to score nearly every Dragonar kit they made. Hell’s yeah!

Here are the Dragonars at McCormick's Hobby Centre in London, Ontario. That's a great stack of '80s mech goodness, right there.
