Double-decker Bus Robo was cruising along, hopefully unoccupied, when he decided to switch to robot mode and flew instead. Double-decker Bus Robo instruction manual

Double-decker Bus Robo was among the competitors at the Devil's Island race. Sadly his participation was short-lived as early in the race he was barged aside by Vanishing Harry and promptly rammed by Bulldozer Robo, Bike Robo and Hearse Robo. Run Through the Race of Death!

  • Double-decker Bus Robo (1983)
    • ID number: MR-27
    • Accessories: none
Double-decker Bus Robo was the 27th figure in Bandai's Machine Robo Series and transforms from robot to Mitsubishi Fuso Aero King bus in 6 steps. Due to the transformation the robot mode is left with a rotating waist joint, as well as having articulation at the shoulders. The vehicle mode bears the livery of Hato, one of Japan's largest coach lines. It is more reliant on stickers than many of its' contemporaries (notably the centre section of the cab is a factory sticker that fails to cover the yellow plastic behind it), and has relatively little diecast. As the roof is paint on clear plastic it can be prone to wear.
  • The figure was never released outside of Japan, likely as the bus mode was considered unexciting to Western children. However, it was later repurposed as the GoBot Decker Decker by Fun Publications.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A prototype version of Double-decker Robo featured a darker colour scheme on the robot mode's upper body.
  • While Double-decker Bus Robo was never officially issued outside of Japan, it was one of several figures cloned by Mimo for their Brazilian Convert line.
