Kotetsu Jeeg in 3d
Jeeg Robot was one of my first 3d models I created about the end of 90s. Years later I also used some parts of this 3d model as base for some tests, such as in 3d printing for mugs in ceramics, gold-plated necklaces and more.
The TV Series
In theory, Jeeg Steel Robot (Kotetsu Jeeg in Japanese) it is one of the many robotic series that have been produced in years ' 70 after the succes of the series realized from Mr. Go Nagai.
However, we cannot not to cite it for many reasons. In the first place it's one of the more famous series in Italy (and this would be enough... ^_^), but there are other reasons:
There is also the here the ideas of Go Nagai, even if only like idea of departure, and is one of the preferred series from the girls (together with Goldrake).
The series, composed from 46 episodes, has been produced from the Toei Doga and transmitted in Japan for before the time between 1975 and 1976.
12 meters tall, Jeeg is one of the smallest robots of animated cardboards Japanese, but also one of most particular. It in fact is not commant from the inside from a man, but she is just the protagonist Hiroshi Shiba who, thanks to a magical medaglione, transforms itself in its head.
The rest of the body is composed from a series of parts that, launched from the Big Shooter, a special airplane piloted from the young Miwa, are joined with a couple of magnets. In such a way Jeeg can easy interchange the several parts of the body, sostituendole with crews or objects that help it in the combat.
During some episodes of the series, the robot will use rockets and trivelle that, in substitution of its arms they will allow it to fly or to perforate the rocks; to its weapons arsenal will add a bazooka that during the battle it will join in place of its arm, and also a mechanic horse, that will join to Jeeg, so this robot will become the first robotic-centaur of the history of anime series.
