Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It has been speculated that the small size of the figure's gun is the reason for Fire Robo's low number of international releases as it may not have passed European/Australian/Canadian toy safety laws of the time. However, it is not known why Bandai did not just omit the accessory from these releases as the toy works just as well without it.
