Carry-All is a Security Forces or Guardian Robo Machine. Or at least in the comics he is.


The Robo Machines comic[edit]

Carry-All was created by the Security Forces onboard the Command Centre to help in their hunt for Stron-Domez and Cy-Kill on Earth. When the ship was attacked by Stron-Domez' new Zod body he and Royal-T were dispatched by Leader One to engage the Renegade in air-to-air combat. Unfortunately his firepower was not enough to damage the monster and Royal-T was soon shot down. Carry-All landed next to him in a playground and with the help of some children was able to conceal his badly wounded comrade in a disused railway tunnel. Cut off from the Command Centre, he set out to look for his fellow Security Forces troops but instead detected the scrapyard where Zod and Cy-Kill were constructing the Devil Invaders. There he fought bravely against Cy-Kill but was jumped and crushed in Zod's jaws, leaving him mortally wounded. Carry-All was able to transmit his location to the rest of the Security Forces but expired before they arrived.

  • Carry-All (Robo Machine, 1984)
    • Enemy
    • ID number: RM-42
    • Accessories: Rotor (2)
Carry-All converts from robot to Boeing CH-46 Sea Knight tandem rotor helicopter, and while identical in design to the Machine Robo Vertol Robo toy, he received a dark green repaint with blue and red highlights plus US Army markings. A carded repackage of the green Vertol Robo variant featuring a new blue background, Carry-All was released by Bandai Europe in 1984. While initially sold without a faction and marketed in The Robo Machines comic as a Guardian, later packaging and catalogs listed the figure as an Enemy Robot.

Machine Men[edit]

  • Battle Copter Man (Machine Men, 1984)
    • ID number: 24
    • Accessories: Rotor (2)
The sixth toy from the fourth wave of figures, Battle Copter Man was released by Bandai Australia in 1984. The figure used the same colour scheme as the European release, minus the red engine tips. Battle Copter Man was the final figure to feature both a new name and be packaged on a blue backing card. Later in 1984, the figure was re-released on a new black backing card depicting a blue-tinted alien landscape. Rather than utilizing his Robo Machine name, the toy was repurposed into the Enemy Robot Twin Spin.

Robo Machines[edit]

  • Transport Helicopter (Robo Machines, 1993)
    • Accessories: Rotor (2)
The figure was reissued by Bandai in Europe during 1993 as part of the first series of Robo Machines, with the 'US Army' stickers updated to say 'RM Army'. For trademark reasons the figure was renamed simply Transport Helicopter in the British market, with localised versions of the name used in other markets. Sadly, like most of the Robo Machines figures Transport Helicopter uses poor quality materials and suffers from mould degradation. Cross-sells on the Series 1 cards incorrectly show Vertol Robo instead of the released toy.
