I wrote before in my review of Revoltech’s Getter 1 figure, that I had only a sparse memory of the Getter series as a child, but once I had reached a stage of maturity I had a chance to reconnect once more with Go Nagai’s Getter Franchise by means of the Starvenger series of Jim Terry, which “Americanized” Getter Robo G.
In Getter Robo G the same characters are there except for Musashi. The pilot of Getter 3 perished at the end of the series and was replaced by Benkei. In Getter Robo G the 3 robots have names attached to them instead of just numbers. Ryoma had Getter Dragon, Hayato had Getter Liger while Benkei had Getter Poseidon. In Starvengers they were referred to as Star Dragon, Star Arrow and Star Poseidon.
In 2004 there was a retelling of the Getter Robot Franchise via 13 episode series titled Shin! Getter Robot. New designs were made for the 3 robots. Almost all the major characters return but in this story Musashi gets replaced by Benkei as the pilot of Getter 3. You can check out the video here.
Getter Robo 3 of this movie has been made into a toy by Kaiyodo in their Revoltech Series. The toy was sculpted by Katsuhisa Yamaguchi and uses the unique joint system found in Revoltech models that allow for extreme posing. The design of Getter 3 in New! Getter Robo (Shin! Getter Robo in Japanese) is different from the first Getter 3 but it carries the spirit of the original.
