By machine space highway are electrical transmission to Ken Takase, Ken, to transform into a machine Man (Ikushido conversion) in Dolphin. The Golden Mons warfare, of skills per body Dolphin Full Power I was using. It should be noted that the machine man is facing always downward (road surface direction) in the Dolphin, it was described in your postcard corner to have can maneuver to see it because there is a monitor in front of the eye.
