I remember this show vividly. I used to watch it on an old CD of my dad's and I don't remember the title.

All I can remember is a guy getting into a giant robot. The robot is shaped like a human with no hair; like just imagine a normally-built body, but giant man in a red and white suit. Anyway, what I can really remember is the way the guy gets into the robot; he gets dropped down into a seat where he can control the robot.

I think this show is just about fighting off enemies and so yeah, I hope someone will be able to help or maybe just one of you guys has a memory of what I'm talking about, and I apologize if I made any mistakes writing this.

    Hi, welcome to the site. In roughly which year did you watch this and when do you think it might've been made? Commented Feb 23 at 18:25

    Live action? In Japanese? Anime? Was the red and white suit more like a superhero costume, more like a flight suit, or more like a business suit? Etc.

The description of the robot makes me think of Astroganger.

It was one of the first animes about giant robots, but the look of the main robot (the titular Astroganger) is very human-like, plus the colors (red and gray) could match with what the OP remembers.

The pilot (a kid) could summon this robot using a kind of medallion, then he would enter through a kind of tractor beam from the robot chest and drive it (though the robot has a kind of mind of its own).

It is of course very old, so I don't know if a DVD release exists.

In the Italian wikipedia entry of the anime you can see a picture of the robot and its pilot.

Here is a video of the opening titles:


Maybe Mazinger Z?

The description doesn't really fit for the shape of the robot and the suit, but the way the humans control the robots and the fact that it's a show about fighting enemies do.

    This doesn't seem a terribly good match.
