From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Soul of Chogokin (超合金魂 Chōgōkin Damashii ?) or "Soul of Super-alloy", is a popular line of adult collector's toys produced by the Japanese company Bandai.

The line, which began in 1997, focuses almost exclusively on mecha (robots) taken from various 70's/80's anime series, although the line has diverged from this on a number of occasions, most notably the release of several mecha from the popular mid-90's anime phenomenon, Neon Genesis Evangelion. More recently, the line has expanded further to include mecha from 70's Super Sentai and Tokusatsu series, such as the Battle Fever Robo from Battle Fever J and Leopardon from the Japanese TV adaptation of Spider-Man.
