Concept

Tadao Nagahama influenced the series' artistry and direction, and its style resembles those of Voltes V and Combattler V .

The super robot Daltanious was formed from three components: Atlaus (the main robot), Gunper (the spaceship) and Beralios, the mechanical lion who was recovered after the first battle with Akron. The robot is named after D'Artagnan, the hero of The Three Musketeers . [1] Daltanious is 56 metres (184 ft) tall and weighs 678 short tons (615,000 kg). Daltanious was the first combining super-robot with an animal component and the first with a lion's head on its chest. The lion's head motif would be incorporated into several Brave Series robots, including GaoGaiGar.

Toys

Like all Super Robot anime titles, Daltanious had a die-cast toy replica produced by Popy during its run. In 2011, a Daltanious toy was released by Bandai in their Soul of Chogokin line. [2] [3]
