Toys[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos[edit | edit source]
- Varigale-X (1986)
- ID number: MRG
- Accessories: Missiles
- Varigale-X was released by Bandai in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline, and can switch between ship and base modes. It features two spring-loaded missile launchers. The toy a recolour of the Jaguar Vulcan from the Super Sentai series Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan, a toy of which had been made by Popy before the company was reabsorbed by Bandai. As such it doesn't have a particularly great level of interactivity with Machine Robo toys, merely being about the right size for the likes of the Gyandlar Devils to stand up in.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Yep, this was a good guys' ship in Sun Vulcan.
- The base mode was never seen in the show.
