An homage to Metalder from the Japanese series Choujinki Metalder (Superhuman-Machine Metalder).[1] Better known in the United States as VR Troopers which borrowed footage from Chōjinki Metarudā, Jikū Senshi Supiruban, and Uchū Keiji Shaidā.

Story

Bio: Metaruda

All Dale Naheem wanted was to be a costumed mascot, like his heroes the Knights of the Slice. He settled for a job hawking "Riftchipz", a popular gas station snack. It wasn't glamorus. But at least he got a cool cyborg costume. The night before his first in-costume appearance, Dale's foster dog peed all over the outfit. Fostering senior dogs is very imporant, but they sometimes have bladder issues. Left with little options, Dale reworked his suit using parts he found at the local dump. Little did he know those parts were actually from a Rift corpse. What ensued was nothing less than utter hi-jinx...
