Androform by Blue-Box Toys

Setting the expectation early, I know very little about these
PLEASE get in contact if you have some more details!

Stamped 1984 and believed released in 1985, Blue Box Toys made a leap into multi-form robot toys with 'Androform'

To be honest, I'm not even sure the Tank, Plane and Jeep below are actually from the Androform line. They are
Blue Box Toys, are stamped 1984 and I don't think Blue Box Toys had another similar toy line at the time so
presumably they're Androform

Known to be correct are three items, a revolver that turns into a robot, a Space Shuttle Carry Case also turns
into a robot and a service station that doesn't

All of the Tank, Plane and Jeep examples found have come from the UK, however the company also has branches
in the US and France. Details are thin on their operational history, however presumably with the UK and France
connection they originated in the UK and expanded. This could indicate that these three models at least were
a UK only release

Any more details, corrections or leads I can follow I'd love to hear about!

2 in 1 ROBOT PISTOL
Androform Blue-Box Toys 1984

A light grey revolver with a brown grip, red hammer and
trigger that turns into a robot. When in robot mode
more red sections are visible including the face, hands
and inner legs

Then fun side is that in alt mode the revolver can fire
a fist as the projectile

The way the head is shown on the packaging does not
match the actual product

Packaging reads:

"It comes from intergalactic space - this fierce warrior of
the Androform Force. But watch out! - because it changes
before you very eyes as you twist and turn and pull."

ANDRO BASE - 38 cm
Androform Blue-Box Toys 1985

A Space Craft that turns into a robot styled base play set

The large, white plastic set covered in colourful stickers
stands out as a great piece of 80s fun that many of us
remember seeing a school friend have but no idea where
it was from

The packaging decalares that the Andro Base can be used
with "Go-Bots", "Androform", "Machine Man" and
"Transformer". It also shows Gobots / Machine Men as
well as a Village Toys Convert-a-Bot in the photos

This design was later reduced in size, modified to remove
the robot mode look, coloured gunmetal and re-used as
the Maximal Mobile Base from Beast Wars

ANDRO BASE 1 - XX cm
Androform Blue-Box Toys 1985

A futuristic themed Gas / Service Station Garage play set
with 24 parking bays over two levels, one heli-pad, fuel,
cleaning and inspection areas

The packaging decalares that the Andro Base 1 can be
used with "Go-Bots", "Androform", and "Transformer". It also
shows Gobots / Machine Men in the packaging photos

In Australia the 'Go-Bots' text was covered with a sticker
which read, "Machine Men" in bright green on a blue
background
