Robo Machines (very mini) mini catalogue

Robo Machines was a transforming vehicle/robot toy line made by the Bandai company in the 1980s.

When I say that this Robo Machines catalogue I recently acquired is not much bigger than a postage stamp I’m not exaggerating! Here it is all in its tiny, little glory. Small is beautiful.

Robo Machines Command Centre Play Set. The top left picture of the transforming vehicle on four legs reminds me of  a very famous vehicle as employed by the Empire in certain Star Wars films!

Thank you for transforming with us 🙂 

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.
