Company history
About Popy    
In the early 70's the parent company Bandai spun off the toy division Popy and allowed them to utilize an unproven toy material - die cast metal. That metal soon gained the trade name "Chogokin" or super metal alloy. Popy robots are often considered to be jewelry-like in their refinement and represent the pinnacle in engineering for die cast engineering in Japan. Much of the paintwork utilizes at least 4 colors and has an exacting glossy polished appearance. Chrome parts, transforming mechanisms, shooting fists, swords, axes, hidden compartments, and even magnets are used throughout the line. In the late 70's the United States was introduced to this masterful company with the "Shogun Warriors" toy line. Mattel re-packaged and distributed an assortment of the super-robots throughout the states.

Popy 2007 SKamen Rider - Shocker Zukkoke Operation!! Trading figures
This is our first Popy gallery on the site which is pretty cool in my eyes. What makes it even more special is that it's a Popy gallery of trading figures. Figures of what? Shocker soldiers that's what!!

You have your Storm Troopers, Clones Troopers, Galactic Marines, Cobra, Hive Agents, Parademons, Monarch butterflies... all pale in comparison to the shocker soldiers. Don't let their appearance fool you, their mean, murderous little buggers.

But sometimes... they have bad days to. A lot of bad days. Killing Kamen Rider's has never been an easy thing you know.

Following up on the success of the Getter Robo anime, Getter Robo G (ゲッターロボG) aired for 39 episodes on Fuji TV from May 15, 1975 to March 25, 1976 and spawned a great many toys in Japan. Furthermore, the show was adapted for American audiences and retitled as 'Starvengers' when it was included in Jim Terry's famously popular 'Force Five' cartoons. Just like it's predecessor, Getter Robo G featured three vehicles that could combine to form three different robots. This time around, the robots had slightly more interesting names, being called 'Getter Dragon', Getter Liger (ゲッター ライガー), and Getter Poseidon.

Popy 1983 GB-35 Golion
The GB-38 ST Golion toy is one of the best representations of this character to this day. I, like many other Americans, grew up owning the stripped down version of this toy put out by matchbox in 1984. I would play with it, knowing that there had to be something more. The fists looked like they should fire, but they don’t. Where was the sword and shield?
