Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos
- Landfighter (Dash Robo, 1986)
- ID number: MRB
- Accessories: large gun, small gun, power base
- Landfighter was part of in Bandai's Dash Robo series issued in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline, converting from Honda ATC to robot. The toy features a friction motor in vehicle mode, and can move when placed on the base in robot mode. While the figure was designed for Zenmai Kahen Winch Robo as Moto ATC (issued as the Robo Machine Moto ATC in Europe), Landfighter was in fact a repackaging of the GoBots Secret Rider Tri-Trak, with "Battlancer" stickers factory-applied over the "Tri-Trak" decals. As such, Landfighter was likely manufactured for GoBots and later added to the Japanese line, perhaps explaining why he doesn't feature in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos cartoon. Despite his unusual shape, Landfighter has some impressive features, notably excellent arm articulation, though his sliding hips require gentle care to avoid the legs snapping off.
- While Landfighter did not appear in the cartoon, his packaging identifies him as a member of the Battle Tribe.
