Talk:Machine Men (North American franchise)

The more I hunt around the more it seems like The-Liberator has the call wrong on the line's name.

Comparing these card designs to what seems to be a confirmed first-run Australian release:

The top trio have no blue box around the blister, just say "Bandai" instead of "Bandai Australia" and advertise the mail-in competition rather than the "As seen on TV", as well as other layout changes. Meanwhile the only Robot Machine Men cards I can find feature French text.

Therefore it seems that the pre-GoBots US line was called simply Machine Men, with Robot Machine Men its' Canadian cousin. Why they changed the name I don't know, but really this seems to hold up as the most likely explanation. I'll get to work...
