JET JAGUAR

Height: 2 meters
Mass: 270 lbs

Bio:
Goro Ibuki, a brilliant technician, computer scientist and part-time inventor, had made some enemies in his lifetime. Enemies that he cared not to speak about to his nephew, Rokuro, or his best friend, Hiroshi. Nevertheless, he knew it would bode disaster to simply ignore the impending threats that would occassionally reach his ears. So, he dove headfirst into a project that had been swirling about in his head for the last several years, being a little project called "JET JAGUAR."
Goro had always been a mysterious one, largely keeping to himself, his only visitors being his best friend and little nephew. He knew, however, that because he had such social contacts, such people that were dear to him, they would be targets for whatever threat breathed down his neck. Thus, Jet Jaguar was his crowning achievement as a scientist; a human-sized machine, though easily 6 feet tall, was powerful and constructed to be nearly unbeatable by average human means. When asked how he could create something so advanced, Goro would avoid the subject or use some colorful euphamism to gloss over the fact that Jet Jaguar's design was only about half his own, while the other half was something more advanced....more alien...
Rokuro loved the TV series "Zone Fighter," to the point of idol worship. As a result, Goro designed Jet Jaguar in such a way that it would mimic the colorful heroes on television, and hopefully embody the courage and ideology they represented. Rokuro immediately treated Jet Jaguar like a metallic foster father, and "JJ," in kind, treated Rokuro with special consideration, if only because Goro had programmed the robot for such. JJ was Goro's bodyguard, rather than simply a playmate, and it was the advent of the Nebulan invasion that the robot's true purpose would come to bear. Jet Jaguar was, at first, sought out as a weapon to be stolen by mysterious men claiming to be "Seatopians," but Goro regained control, and the machine was able to plow through an entire attack squadron of Nebulan soldiers, becoming instrumental in allowing Godzilla, Anguirus and the JSDF to defeat Gigan, Megalon and the Nebulans.

Specifications:

I really like this look for him. Mainly because he makes me think of Optimus Prime due to the face mask which makes him look more badass. Nicely done

I would like to see the first concept of Jet Jaguar, or rather, Red Alone.

Everyone looks down on Jet Jaguar, but he was actually a pretty cool character in his own right.  He was willing to take on both Gigan and Megalon by himself to save his family, even though he was getting his ass handed to him.  That's a true hero in my opinion.

Good thing Big G showed up to even the odds!

While I miss the "programming himself to grow giant" thing, this is basically the perfect look for Jet Jaguar. It's unapologetically campy and toyetic - like, it literally looks like an action figure. The grin might be downplayed, but it's still there and he still feels like a jolly ton o'fun.

How much are you willing to bet that Matt drew this while listening to Jet Jaguar's theme, both the original and the one from Godzilla: Unleashed.

What I think would be an awesome addition to JJ's design was if he was sorta liquid-y, like the T-1000. That would be sooooo cool!

Ah, my pipe dreams flutter away

Awesome cool design, I like how you did the sort of helmetesk face plate thing like they did with the original Optamis Prime, instead of the human face, really cool, good job.

I like it and if any of you played the game "Godzilla unleshed" or seen "Godzlla vs. Megalon", you would know he can change size.
