Double Machine Robo[edit | edit source]

  • Heli Transer (1986)
    • ID number: WMR-02
    • Accessories: rotor, machine gun
Heli Transer was the 2nd figure in Bandai's Double Machine Robo line and transforms from robot to Bell AH-1 SuperCobra and armoured personnel carrier modules. The helicopter can clip onto the APC. The figure has a very thin head but good arm articulation. The rotor and machine gun can remain in place for conversion but are removable, either to avoid them snapping or so they can easily get lost.

Double Machine Robo[edit | edit source]

  • Heli Transer (1986)
    • ID number: MRJW-2
    • Accessories: rotor, machine gun
Heli Transer was reissued for the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline in updated packaging. The figure was assigned to the Jet Tribe (despite having a helicopter module; this was likely to keep the Double Machine Robo in the line balanced as three in each group) and featured no changes from the original Japanese release.
