Burning Electronic Planet The mission saw the Silver Wolves rescue the humans Akira Amachi, Luke Stewart and Mia White, though they became separated from a fourth survivor, Patricia Longfellow. Luke and Akira eyed the Battle Riser and Jet Riser as something they could use to help in the battle for the ship, but were roundly mocked for by the Wheelmen and denied permission for by Drill Crusher. However, that night the pair stole the Riser Suits from Crystal City, with Akira using the Jet Riser to carry Luke in the Battle Riser. Jet Riser! Scramble! After finding the Good Hope to be heavily guarded by Gurendos they had to be saved by Mach Blaster and members of White Thunder, who nevertheless agreed to help them rescue Patricia and another survivor, Zen Ogawa. Heavy Wind, Mach Blaster! Luke would then pilot the suit as a member of the Battle Hackers, first on their mission to retrieve Rotary Kid and Twincam Jimmy. Rotary Kid and Twincam Jimmy He later used the Battle Riser during a huge Algo Army assault on the Gurendos. Quickly, Gattai Saurer! After Luke and Akira put in a bad showing in battle they were taken to Science by Mach Blaster for extra training, and were then able to use the suits to trounce Yasand and Rikimines in combat.

Toys[edit | edit source]

Machine Robo: Battle Hackers[edit | edit source]

  • Battle Riser (Battle Hackers, 1987)
    • ID number: BH-06
    • Accessories: pellets
Battle Riser was released in Bandai's Machine Robo: Battle Hackers toyline in 1987. The toy does not convert, instead forming a suit of battle armour for the included figure of Luke Stewart. It reuses some of the same parts as the Power Riser and Jet Riser, notably the upper shoulders and the upper legs, and required some assembly. The Battle Bazooka is a working gun that fires BB-style pellets. Luke Stewart is a retool of the Akira Amachi figure included with the Jet Riser toy, the only difference being the head.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While the Battle Riser was logically developed for the Red Knights team only Luke is ever seen piloting it in the series, and they have to make do with Power Risers.
  • Early catalogue pictures of the Battle Riser toy featured Boxer Robo as the pilot figure; whether he was planned at some stage to be released as part of the set or if the Luke Stewart figure was simply not finished when the pictures were taken is unknown.
