"Assault! Armor Jack!" ("突撃!アーマージャック!") was originally a two minute promotional film made in 1996 that later in 1997 became a series of VCD episodes, in which a hero called "Armor Jack", designed by the toy company "Amapro" kills two monsters. Sadly, the show has now sunken into the mist of obscurity and footage has been proven difficult to find.

History Edit

The Japanese toy company, Amapro (アマプロ) had it's own tokusatsu superhero of the name "Armor Jack" (アーマージャック) who's debut came in a 1996, 2:40 promotional film, in which Armor Jack kills two of the five (known) monsters to have appeared in the show. Despite the concern of the viability over Armor Jack's concept, Core Magazine sponsored production of short VCD episodes. From 1997 to 2001, only three (?) episodes were released in total. Amapro later released an extremely rare bag of soft-vinyl dolls of Armor Jack, and two of his opponents, Rarigonika and Naruton.

Characters (known) Edit

Naruton (ナルトン): A large, black monster with short arms and a large piece of fish-paste pasta on his head.

Tsutabara (ツタバラー): A green, human-shaped monster with a radish-like head with the mouth design somewhat like a jack-o-lantern. He also seems to be armed with some sort of cleaver.

Episode 2: Protect the Green. Naruton and Tsutabara are fighting each other. Armor Jack breaks up the fight then kills Naruton and then is thanked by Tsutabara. Despite of being thanked by the other monster, Armor Jack kills that one too and rips out what seem to be some sort of vines.
