Additional Details Before Series 1

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

Region Codes Used:
JP Japan / US United States / CA Canada / AU Australia / EU Europe / BRA Brazil / CHA China / TWN Taiwan / HUN Hungary

stickers had 'POLICE' on them. At least one variation has headlight stickers

One of the versions with 'HARLEY' on the windscreen a series of grooves where the plastic lugs that
hold the handlebars on other versions should be. No handlebars are supplied with this version

** these have a very poor build quality, even for bootlegs. The example shown was taken new out of
the blister just before photographing and has missing paint on the metal parts, poor paint application,
damaged stickers, bent legs and is extremely fragile in the hips

I'm unsure whether the non-PEPSI promotion Convertables were as poorly made

The other PEPSI promotion figures (Converta-a-Jeep/Convert-a-Racer) shown
above (Geeper Creeper / Slicks) had a much greater build quality

MINI COOPER ROBO - 8.5 cm
Machine Robo Series MR-38 JP Bandai 1984

NOTE: the MR-38 sticker sheet is die cut incorrectly and does not have the rear window sections divided into
four parts, just two large windows pieces. If the sticker curves are placed into the corresponding plastic
curved window edges the stickers will need to be cut to allow Mini Cooper Robo's legs to move when switching modes.
Compare the complete sticker sheed VS the applied stickers

Gobots 38 Series 2 US only Tonka 1984 (stamped MRT-41)
Gobots 38 Series 2 US only Tonka with 3-D Sticker 1985 (stamped MRT-41)


HEAD PAINT VARIATIONS
Scratch was released with two head paint applications, one with black, 'L' shaped sections and one without.
Both versions sport the same red head paint sections and are stamped 'MRT-41 BANDAI (c) G. K. 1984 JAPAN'.
My guess is that the black sections were dropped later in the production run to reduce costs.
It's also worth noting that the version with the black sections does not match the figure painting on
the front of the cardback.

I'm very interested if anyone has further information

** yellow stripe wing, leg, kills, and serial number stickers not included with these releases

NOTE: when applying Zero Robo's stickers it's very worth referencing the example shown here,
the box photograph and an actual Mitsubishi A6M Zero plane's markings as the sticker guide is fairly vague.
This is especially important with regard to the orientation of the yellow wing strips.
The yellow strips were intended to be laid along the front of the wing, however due to the
machine gun placement this is not possible. The angled end to the strips would have compensated for the
angle of the wings in the originally intended place. In the prototype image below the strips have cut-out
sections for the gun barrels. Presumably the gun barrel cutouts were removed for the production version and
the sticker placement raised to compensate. The exagerated angled ends were not modified to match the
raised placement of the stickers making them look a little odd yet correct

LIMOUSINE ROBO - BLACK GRILLE
Machine Robo Series MR-46 EU Bandai 1984

** window colour: for the most part figures stampted 'JAPAN' have darker, almost black windows,
whereas 'MACAU' stamped figures have windows of an obviously brown colour

** grille plastic: 'JAPAN' stampted figures have grilles cast in off-white plastic VS those stamped
'MACAU' which are cast in black; chrome is later applied

BLACK GRILLE: I was fairly skeptical about these being released until I found one in a junk shop in Australia.
There have been a number of claims that the black grille version was released in Europe,
however I'm yet to see one on a Robo Machine(s) card OR an Australian Machine Men card.
All production Robo Machine(s) and Machine Men versions appear to have silver/chrome grilles.
My thoughts are that IF they were ever on card they may have been a limited release mistake.
As above, the Macau made European Robo Machines release had a black plastic grille which was then chromed

If anyone has further details to hey can share it will be greatly appreciated

Production Details: the figure is stamped 'MR-46 (c) G. K. BANDAI 1985 MACAU' and the grille is spray painted black.
Contrary to common belief that the grille has simply lost its chrome paint,
the black is painted over the chrome and under that it's the same off white plastic seen on other chrome damaged Tux figures.
As the Machine Robo prototype had a black body with a chrome grille and head it's possible that for a very
small release a mistake was made when the colour scheme was changed to the final production version

** a couple of sources report that the Australian Machine Men line released both the US and EU variations of this model,
however I think this is a mistake. Battle Copter Man was first released with the Robo Machines Red engine tips and then
once re-released with the US Gobots name it lost the red tips. I think this may be where the confusion lies.
Please get in contact if you have a US Twin Spin on an Australian Machine Men card

Machine Men VS Robo Machine Confusion: there's confusion as to whether the red tipped version was released in
Australia for Machine Men. The image below shows two depictions of Twin Spin from Machine Men cardbacks.
Both cardbacks show the Machine Men and Robo Machine versions intended to be the same figure.
I'd guess they had one of each for promotional use and hoped no one would notice.
Living in Australia I only saw the all green release and I'm very interested in any further information
