trailers of Mazinga?

well, sort of!  here's the Hallowe'en trailer of the day:

this is the Spanish trailer, which is slightly shorter than the German trailer for Roboter Der Sterne.

obviously, this isn't Mazinga Z, but rather a Taiwanese version of Super Robot Mach Baron (1974). one can tell it's not just four or five episodes cobbled together from the original series, because none of the original actors are in it.  the Taiwanese had done this before, with Kamen Rider.  apparently the international title is The Iron Man.

apparently Mazinga Z was more popular than Mach Baron in other countries.  I can understand that. both series do have similar themes and ideas.

what it DOES lack is the awesome opening song of Mach Baron. try it, you'll love it!
