Machine Men mini-comics[edit]

After the Australian Army dropped a nuclear bomb on the Enemy Machine Men during a pitched battle on Earth the explosion awakened the Rock Lords. Tombstone confidently faced off with the Friendly Machine Man Road Ranger, opining his weapons would do the Rock Lord no harm. He was wrong as Road Ranger promptly blasted most of his torso away, though Sticks and Stones noted it was unlikely to completely stop him. Challenge of the Machine Men

Rock Lords[edit]

    • Accessories: The Reaper
Tombstone was released in the first series of Rock Lords by Tonka and converts from robot to quartz rock. The figure was released in Japan as Geiger Rock, one of the Rock Robo in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline, with a different colour scheme - the Western release featured lime green robot mode parts; it is unclear which was the original release. Tombstone has movement at the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees but sadly his arms can only move out parallel to his body, which means he can't raise his weapon.
