- Big Shuttle Robo was the 5th figure in Bandai's Big Machine Robo series and transforms from robot to NASA Space Shuttle orbiter - the additional sticker sheet identifies the precise shuttle as the Challenger. The shuttle mode features retractable undercarriage. The robot mode bears very little resemblance to Shuttle Robo, with a completely different robot mode configuration, head design and even colour scheme. It does have decent arm articulation, though.
- The figure was later issued as the GoBots/Robo Machine Super GoBot figure Spay-C, with no significant changes beyond a different sticker sheet.
