Machine Robo Series[edit | edit source]

  • Bulldozer Robo (1983)
    • ID number: MR-11
    • Accessories: cab roof, Ionoid Heat Bazooka
Bulldozer Robo was the 11th figure in Bandai's Machine Robo Series and transforms from robot to Komatsu D155A bulldozer. Bulldozer Robo was one of the few "600 Series" figures to include a weapon accessory, though as it was very small it is easy to lose. The roof can be kept in place during transformation; the part was likely only made removable to avoid it snapping or bending and to aid it being packed in the box used for the figures, as it does not affect the robot's balance. Sadly, the noble aim of avoiding the roof snapping means it is also a part frequently missing from loose examples. Additionally the stickers for the feet can foul during conversion. Like the rest of the range, the figure retailed at ¥600.
  • Bulldozer Robo was also made available carded from kiosks. From 1986 onwards the card design was updated. The figure itself was unchanged.
  • The figure was later issued as the GoBots figure Dozer, with no changes apart from omitting the extra sticker sheet. This means the American version is thus missing the feet and shoulder stickers.
