Mattel #2995 Collectors Shogun Warriors Dangard (Danguard Ace)


#2995 Dangard

Dangard may be identified by the red arrow shapes on his body. His chest and legs have upward pointing red arrows, and his head has wings for ears with a forward facing plane canopy for a forehead. His metal torso is painted black, red and blue.

For background information on this figure, there's much more information on Danguard Ace here.


Dangard as a Collectors Shogun Warrior was only offered in the 2nd version Wide Box.

Mattel Catalog Specifications:

 (First appearance: Mattel Toys 1979 Retailer Catalog Page 52)

"Invincible Guardians in miniature! Shogun(R) stalwarts 3 inches tall. All have die-cast metal parts, arms that move." 
The line has been expanded from the original six to a full ten with the addition of:

#2994Voltus V
#2995 Dangard
#2996 Leopardon
#2997 "17"
Yet even with the expanded line the assortment has the same count/weight. They apparently just give you fewer of each to make room for the additions.

Non-US Releases

  • Dangard also appeared via Mattel in Europe in the wide box.
  • Speculation:
    • Bandai may have released the figure via the GoDaiKin line with extra stickers on a backer card 
    • Bandai may have released Dangard in a skinny box with Kana in some Asian Markets, also sharing the extra stickers from the GoDaiKin release

John's Notes

This is one of the harder Collectors Shogun Warriors to find for some reason.
