Robo Machines

Sold in the UK by the Bandai toy company, Robo Machines were transforming vehicle/robot toys made from sturdy plastic and die cast metal. Characters included RM-01 Motorcycle, RM-02 Tank, RM-03 Aeroplane and others. Robo Machines was also a British comic strip serialised in Eagle comics between 1984 and 1985. The story, though titled after the Bandai-owned Robo Machine toys, can also be connected to the Tonka-owned names of the Gobots, another toyline.
