Affectionately nicknamed "Holy Floating Head" by western fans. I do not know why.

Shōji Kawamori (河森正治 Kawamori Shōji) is a renowned Japanese mechanical designer. He was born February 2, 1960, in Toyama Prefecture.

He was one of the designers working for Takara on Diaclone and is known to have contributed to the design of Battle Convoy amongst others. However, he is most famous for having designed the transforming VF-1 Valkyrie fighter jet/mecha for the series Super Dimensional Fortress Macross as well as Escaflowne and Eureka 7. A toy version of the Valkyrie was later used as the Transformer Jetfire.

Kawamori has recently returned to the Transformers franchise, supervising the design of a G1 Optimus Prime toy for Takara's Transformers Hybrid Style line, and a highly detailed Starscream for the Masterpiece line.
