Shogun Warrior Missiles, a ComparisonI often get requests to identify the various missiles and projectiles that accompanied the Shogun Warriors. Hopefully, this page will help to identify the multitude of variations.
Here are the missile variations that I personally possess:
Dragun Axes, a Comparison
Dragun axes came in blue, white and yellow (usually one of each). The axe on the left is from a first issue Dragun (and is how they were made for the Japanese release). Notice the larger base and spiked head.
Raydeen Delta Wings, a comparison
Notice that the first Issue (on left) is hollow, vacu-formed plastic while the second Issue (on right) is hard plastic, with a hollowed-out belly. The first issue has a hole in its tail to attach to the firing pin, while the second has a square notch. They are not interchangeable between the different Raydeens.
