Machine Robo Series[edit]

  • Buggy Robo (1982)
    • ID number: MR-08
    • Accessories: none
Buggy Robo was the 8th figure in Bandai's Machine Robo Series and converts from robot to a blue beach buggy patterned after a Meyers Manx beach buggy, with a folding windshield and rubber tyres, in 6 steps. The figure has articulation at the shoulders and the knees, though the latter only lock into place in one position. The toy's only real weak point is the windscreen, which can deform, stress or snap. Like the rest of the range, the figure retailed at ¥600.
  • The figure was later issued as the GoBots figure BuggyMan, without the additional sticker sheet. This means the American release is missing the racing number on the hood and 'Buggy Robo' decals on the sides.
