Notes:

Gobot Gift Packs #1 and #2 were confusingly issued with multiple differing figure selections
Machine Men were a failed, Bandai released in the US and Canada before Gobots, however the name remained in Australia for the full figure run
Bandai Australia changed to simply 'Bandai' somewhere between mid 1983 and 1984 and re-issued the first figures now with the US Gobots names
Machine Men AU and Robo Machine(s) EU cardbacks shouldn't be taken at face value with regards to colour schemes offered

XX The Singapore (stamped S. PORE Popy) versions (first photo example) often have both poor paint application and metal casting.
Metal sections are pitted and covered in small bumps; easily seen in the alt mode photos white section.
Paint is overall thin, blotchy and often outside of where it should be and the arm arches and hip indents are usually not painted

On the upside, they usually have very clean headlights.

The reason for this is that the S. PORE stamped figures had the paint applied in this order;
white, red, black while all other releases seem to be red, white then black.
This result is the metal under the headlight is all white, whereas most others have a mottled combination of
white and red. Red's harder to cover than white and as it was to go under the headlight
presumably paint application care wasn't a consideration.
As the S. PORE versions started with white and the red section painted next is not near the headlight it stayed clean white

placement of sticker (3) 

this is the originally intended position of sticker (3).
due to initial confusion arising from the vague sticker
sheet directions the error became the norm

note that in all early depictions of the figure,
the instructions guide and other marketing do not
show sticker (3) on the front of the figure.
the line from (3) on the sticker sheet does not
extend onto the figure's front as is the case on
other sticker sheets when placement is
intended to be upon a front face of the figure

NOTE: Shown right, there is a variant window sticker variant that was released with
paper based stickers rather than the more common foil version. While I presume
these are early production run figures and MR-06 was quickly updated to the more robust
foil stickers soon after release, if anyone has any further details please get in contact

often people place stickers 1 and 2 in the angled indents on the
bottom of the feet close to the toes. The sticker sheet
is vague, however the above screen capture shows
those areas are intended to be windows. The brake and
indicators are not shown in the anime, however
their placement make sense to be below the windows. Note
that the silver leg sitckers aren't shown either

Gachapon / Gashapon is the name given to coin operated,
capsule ball dispensing vending machines found most commonly and in huge numbers in Japan.
Gachapon is the colloquial name for the machines while Gashapon is the officially licensed name to Bandai Namco

Both names originate from the sounds the machines make when used:

Gasha/Gacha - the sound of the crank dial being turned
Pon - the sound of the capsule ball falling into the catchment area

spoiler gobots machine robo machine mr-21 rm-61 machine men plastic colour comparison
plastic colour variants

** while the plastic colour matching to the red painted metal isn't up to Bandai's usual standard
(Machine Robo Series, Robo Machine and Machine Men),
the difference on the Tonka Gobots version is far more apparent.
The unnecessary translucency all releases share is more distinct on the Gobots release

Unlike the Gobots series 1 release, Spolier was issued very late in the Robo Machine
and Machine Men lines and presumably by then the colour correction had been made

Gachapon / Gashapon is the name given to coin operated,
capsule ball dispensing vending machines found most commonly and in huge numbers in Japan.
Gachapon is the colloquial name for the machines while Gashapon is the officially licensed name to Bandai Namco

Both names originate from the sounds the machines make when used:

Gasha/Gacha - the sound of the crank dial being turned
Pon - the sound of the capsule ball falling into the catchment area

** Initial Gobots cardback (see example) showed photographs of the
Machine Robo Series version with the Japanese text crudely covered over.
The standing photo of Rest-Q on the back of the card still shows the Japanese text.
The painted character image is also the MR / RM version

XX The cardback character image reuses the Machine Robo Series box art for the
alt mode with the Japanese text replaced with English and the asterisk removed.
The RM Rest-Q figure was issued with English text and the more European
familiar red cross symbol on the side sticker
