Machine Robo: Battle Hackers[edit | edit source]

  • Eagle Winner (Winner Robo, 1988)
    • ID number: W-06
    • Accessories: none
Eagle Winner was released in Bandai's Machine Robo: Battle Hackers toyline in 1988, and converts from robot to McDonnell-Douglas F-15 Eagle jet fighter. As a Winner Robo, the toy's conversion is semi-automatic - pressing a button on the underside of the vehicle causes it to pop into robot mode; it is also fitted with Hot Wheels-style wheels and can interact with the Roboshooter Gaiden track playset. In Eagle Winner's case the wings have to be folded out manually, while his F-15 mode has four inaccurate wheels on the bottom - though they're still arguably more graceful than those of Eagle Robo. Despite this it still retains diecast parts and some arm movement.
  • Like the other Winner Robo, Eagle Winner was not released outside of Japan.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While the figure's box names it as Eagle Winner, the character sticker inside names it as Jetter Robo, as does the cartoon.
  • The prototype of Eagle Winner was substantially different to the released version, with more prominent shoulders (which were retained for the animation model) and what look like automatically converting wings. The reasons for the change to the less impressive reality are unclear.
  • In the cartoon Jetter Robo sometimes has his jet mode portrayed as accurate F-15 and sometimes had the yellow underside and wheels of the toy.
  • He also tends to lose the ability to fly or disappear altogether when his presence would mess up the plot.
