Additional Details Before Series 1 Part 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

NOTE: MR-42 is shown in much of the earlier Bandai marketing material as having black and white (silver?)
striped upper arm stickers which cover the shoulder pins. When the toy was released these were not
included on the model or on the sticker sheet. The later packaging images show MR-42 without the stickers

Tonka released the same red MR-42 as Tailpipe with a reduced sticker set. At the same time they
also released a black version with an updated paint scheme, red windows and the RS-TURBO door
sticker replaced with TAILPIPE. It's reported the black version was only released in Canada,
however there's conflicting views on the subject

NOTE: a prototype for the Robo Machine release of Dart showed a black face with silver eyes

The Robo Machine cardback shows the Gobots version of Dart

Dart is the only non-Machine Robo Series 600 Scale model where the Gobots version is
arguably superior to the Robo Machine release in build quality due to the chrome face;
even though the additional stickers make the Robo Machine closer to an actual Honda VF1000R

Colour and Sticker Variations

Main Body Colour:

Machine Robo Series: Very Light Grey
Machine Men: Dark Grey
Gobots & Robo Machine: Both Light and Dark Grey; a number of sites report the Gobots version being darker however,
I've owned a mix of dark and light carded Gobots and Robo Machine versions. Sky Jack was the third to last
600 Series scale released by Tonka and all of those three saw notable variants. It's likely that with production and
sales winding down there was a mixture issued to clear supply

MACAU stamped light grey Sky Jacks are most likely to be a Robo Machine release
MACAU stamped dark grey could be Machine Men or Robo Machine

Canopy Colour:

Machine Robo Series & Machine Men: Clear or Translucent Blue
Gobots Machine: Translucent Blue

Stickers:

Machine Robo Series - Red, White and Blue Striped Sticker, USAF Wing Stickers
All other lines - Black and Yellow Striped Sticker
