Blue Jet was 2.1m tall, weights 2.5 tons and can fly at Mach 7.2. He studied under Kirai Stol at age 15, along with Rom Stol and Rod Drill; he soon developed excellent sword fighting skills. The trio were sent by Kirai along with his fellow students when the Gyandlar attacked Cronos, helping save Triple Jim and Leina Stol. However, while they were away Kirai sacrificed himself to prevent Grujios taking his knowledge of the Hyribead. Rising Storm - the Fighting Style of Justice! After mourning, Rom decided to go on a quest to find the secret of the Wolf Emblems; Rod and Jet offered to join him but he insisted on going alone. The pair instead discreetly followed their friend, and were able to help him inside the city of Sado Fortress after he was ambushed by the Devil Satan 6. However, the population of the city turned them over to Grujios and they needed the help of young boy Ziggy to get free and defeat the Gyandlar. Rom subsequently invited his friends to join him on his quest. Wolf Sword! Call Forth the Thunder of Courage! The group continued to Vira, but Rod fell in a pool and began to corrode. Jet and the others found Narum, the chief of the village, initially unhelpful as he believed them to be Gyandlar after an attack on the nearby Achibuski. The real Gyandlar turned up soon afterwards, and the travellers were eventually able to help drive them off and get Metal Laster to save Rod. Steal the Metal Laster! He attempted to track Mizuchi after the creature attacked Rom but was unsuccessful; Baikanfu would eventually defeat the monster.

Rod freed them, and when he found himself down after finding his love for Melodia was unrequited, Jet helped to cheer him up. Pledging Love on the Great River The quest took the group to Bird, where Jet met dojo owner Rury. He considered staying there as an instructor and to protect her from the Gyandlar, and duelled the Gyandlar captain Glovine. He was able to beat his opponent and aid Baikanfu in defeating Garudi. He decided to remain with Rom's band for their quest, but told Rury he would return after the conflict was over. Jet! Defeat the Double Death Blade! He later fought Kina and Koron. Burn and Run, Brother and Sister Warriors! Despite his words to Rury, Jet also found himself enamoured with the Princess Solitaire Raymosette as the group escorted her from Pamela to Galba, the tart. Even though the group found out that she was a robot duplicate Jet was still devastated when she chose to sacrifice herself to help defeat Giant Guilder. Sending Love to the Horizon He had a rare falling out with Rom over Preacher, believing Rom to be acting in a cowardly fashion, but the pair soon made up.

After the Machine Robo left Cronos and passed a dimensional gateway they re-emerged as the citizens of the Algo Republic on Electronic Planet B-1 with no memory of their previous adventures. Blue Jet became a member of the White Thunder, the air component of the Algo Army based at the Grand Whale in Crystal City. Burning Electronic Planet He cautioned Mach Blaster against disobeying RIM's orders but the unit commander led a force to the Good Luck anyway to rescue the humans Akira Amachi and Luke Stewart but his commander ignored him and led out a force of White Thunder troops anyway. Heavy Wind, Mach Blaster! As a result, Mach Blaster was reassigned to the Battle Hackers, with Blue Jet taking over as leader of White Thunder. He intervened when Rod Drill came to blows with Drill Crusher over the value of the Battle Hackers as a unit. Jet Riser - Full Fire! He later examined the damage caused by Sorikondar after Garzack's Garfire-SP was stolen and used to destroy a fuel facility in Crystal City.

Save the Electronic Furnace of Death! Blue Jet fell under the control of the Gurendos' brainwashing satellite, leading a force of White Thunder to attack Crystal City, even chasing Akira and Zen; they were released thanks to the efforts of the Battle Hackers. Destroy the Fortress Satellite


Along with Rod Drill, he tried to lead a force to relieve the Battle Hackers, who were pinned down by Gakurandar, but a lightning storm summoned by the Gurendos prevented them reaching the besieged group before they were able to fight their own way clear. R. JeTan! Run! Blue Jet later led a force of Silver Wolves as part of a major Algo Army counter-attack against the Gurendos, ultimately forcing them to retreat. Quickly, Gattai Saurer! He later took part in the Algo Army response to the Gurendos trying to move through B-1's forest areas. Riser! Power Up! After being warned by Drill Crusher, he fired the Grand Whale's defences when Yasand fired stolen electromagnetic missiles at Crystal City but was unable to prevent one of the weapons bursting above Crystal City. Target: Grand Whale After the casualties of the missiles were restored thanks to the help of the Battle Hackers he led a counter-offensive that pushed the Gurendos out of the range of Crystal City. Let's Do It! While he personally scanned Land Giant 32 when it brought supplies into the Grand Whale, Blue Jet was unable to detect the cloaked Shinobis and Igarn. Special Command - Destroy RIM When the Battle Hackers fought a huge Gurendos army in the desert Patricia and Zen attacked Blue Jet for his perceived inaction. Stung by this he set out with Eagle Robo and crucial ammunition for the unit. Yasand attempted to stop them but Blue Jet took him on in single combat, winning out. He then successfully got the ammunition to the Battle Hackers and aided them in destroying the Gurendos force, leading to the destruction of Kariagen. Hot Sand Battle, Hurry Jet! He later commanded the White Thunder in providing air support as RIM chose to take the Grand Whale in for a direct assault on the Gurendos' base in Blood Country. Goodbye - Battle Forever

Leina Stol OVAs[edit]

Voice actor: Shinya Ohtaki

After crossing the dimensional barrier Blue Jet became human, though he retained a suit of armour resembling his previous form - right down to the shades and the ability to fly. He arrived on Electronic Planet B-1, where he was captured along with Jim and Rod by the wizard Velt Zaruk and his paramour Myra. Thanks to Rom, Leina, Shuli and Rall he was freed, and helped battle Myra while Leina helped Rom fight Zaruk.Leina Stol in Wolf Sword Legend II The group then travelled to Ursus to fight Baltun, where Jim, Jet and Drill were again captured while Rom was killed. Leina however was able to rescue them, and Jet successfully battled the resurrected Gru, enabling her to destroy Baltun. Leina Stol in Wolf Sword Legend III

How Blue Jet was simultaneously turned into both the robotic Blue Jet seen on B-1 and the human version of Blue Jet that seems to have travelled with Rom to B-1 at about the same time is unclear.

  • Jet Robo (1982)
    • ID number: MR-03
    • Accessories: none
Jet Robo was the 3rd figure in Popy's Machine Robo Series and transforms from robot to futuristic jet. The cannons on the jet's wingtips are often broken on loose samples, so take care. The robot mode has articulation at the shoulders, while the jet has four small castor wheels underneath to allow the vehicle to roll on flat surfaces. The legs on many Jet Robo do not lock into place evenly, often giving him a distinctive stagger. Early versions of the figure included an additional sticker sheet featuring an oversized USAF roundel; later versions replaced this with a sheet featuring additional detail stickers.
  • Bandai reissued Jet Robo in updated packaging when they took over the line in 1983.
  • The figure was later issued as the GoBots figure Fitor, with no significant changes.
