Toys[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo Series[edit | edit source]
- Falcon Robo (1985)
- ID number: MR-49
- Accessories: none
- Falcon Robo was the 49th figure in Bandai's Machine Robo Series and transforms from robot to General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon jet fighter. The colour scheme is influenced - but not quite accurate to - the scheme used by the USAF's Thunderbirds display team, who used the F-16 around the time the toy was released. The figure features an unusual transformation, with the rear fuselage splitting in half and rotating outwards to form his legs. Strangely, despite it being possible, the Japanese instructions do not show the outer wing panels folding back into the body as the American version does. Falcon Robo has limited shoulder articulation. Like the rest of the range, the figure retailed at ¥600.
- The figure was later issued the GoBots/Robo Machine figure Heat Seeker, with minor changes.
Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo Series[edit | edit source]

- ID number: MRJ-2
- Accessories: none
- Falcon Robo was reissued for the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline in updated packaging. The figure was assigned to the Jet Tribe, and featured no changes from the original Japanese release.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- For Ashi Productions' series, Falcon Robo was given an updated character model featuring a bulb-like helmet for the robot head. While this was meant to be transparent it was often coloured as opaque, making the character appear to have a featureless head.
