I wish I had the 2 ft tall version of Mazinger. That was the holy grail of toys when I was a kid.

Fantastic artwork!

When I watched the series in the USA, I was a very young child, but it was called Tranzor Z. I freaking loved the show. 

Thanks for the nostalgia!

You're welcome. I still remember watching Mazinger Z back when I was a small kid in the '80s: it scared the crap out of me, but I loved it so much! :D
I still do love it, of course, and I think you managed to catch that scary bit. :)

very cool, and well done! :)  I knew this one as "Tranzor Z" when they showed it in my area.  Do you recall another mech from that era, it had fists that could shoot off and they had circular saw blades in the forearms??

That's right, this show was brought to American TV in the 80s under the name Tranzor Z. I remember watching it again at that time but the dubbing was bad plus the show was from the early 70's and felt dated.

As for this other robot show, I'm not sure. Do you remember the color scheme of this mech? It might help in finding what the show was.

I'm not sure if it was in a show, but it was a toy.  I recall red being a dominant color, I'm pretty sure the detachable fists were red.  I saw a Shogun Warrior toy called 'Dragun', which is pretty close, but it doesn't look quite how I remember it.

Dragun is Getter Robo and I think you might have seen one of the toys. There are a few variations on this robot. He has a mostly red color scheme and some version have the saw blades on the fists. The Shogun Warriors were the big plastic ones and although they were cool, they did differ from other toy lines. I always wanted the Mazinga Shogun when I was growing up.
