Goranger Varidorin by Unifive

5.0/5 rating (2 votes)

Description

Goranger was the very first Sentai show. Although giant robots had not yet been introduced into sentai shows, the (literally) colorful characters had a cool collection of vehicles, from their motorcycles to their larger transports.

The original large transport was the Variburen. It featured a flaming paint job, propellor (helicoptor) blades under the vehicle, three cockpit bubbles, and what I assume was a birdlike face that opened up to allow the motorcycles to enter the transport.

It was later replaced with the Varidorin. The Varidorin also included propellor blades, claws, and an opening beak. The Varitank (a tank with extending claws) rode down a ramp from the beak.

Uni-five issued a large scale version of this toy. While I believe that Popy had only released this toy in diecast form under the standard toy line (i.e., much smaller), Uni-Five upsized it considerably. Was this a uniqe creation? Well, not entirely. Much like the Uni-Five Daikyozin was based on an original Takatoku toy, this was based on an original Popy toy, albeit what I believe is a plastic one (I never actually held one in my hands).

This toy features battery-power spining blades!

The toy included mini Blue, Red, and Green Machines (i.e., the motorcycles which the sentai heroes rode):

Also included was a mini Varikikyun:

And a Varitank:

For reference, here's Popy's smaller diecast Varidorin toy (with several other Goranger toys):
