BLOG: Action Toys – Machine Robo Series
|Most people will probably know these two as Leader-1 and Cykill from Challenge of the Gobots, the other series featuring transforming robots. Like Transformers, they were also adapted from another Japanese property — Machine Robo.
Originally appearing in Machine Robo: Revenge of Chronos, these two were known as Bike Robo and Eagle Robo, and they’re not the bitter rivals like their Gobots counterparts were. Four figures are currently announced, these two, Rod Drill, and Battle Robo. No specifics have been given regarding these figures though the release window is estimated to be sometime within the 2nd quarter of 2016.
