Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the details regarding the following toys for me. The first two to the left seem to be some sort of duocon-type of gobot? I think I'm missing the middle section as the tank transforms into legs and the chopper turns into the head/upper body. The chopper is stamped with Bandai, the tank is stamped with W-MR-03 Bandai 1985G. The blue and yellow figure with die cast chest is stamped Takara co. ltd. 1984 Japan:

The last picture is of some parts. Have no idea what they could be from:

Many thanks.

What an odd find there.
The bandai ones are tough. Machine-robo maybe? Google images is giving me nothing similar to what you're showing...

Yep. Machine robo definitely for the tank:

But the helicopter and takara figure is still a mystery.

The one on the right is a block-bot from Takara.
The one in the middle is from Bandai. Its essentially a duocon type toy, with the tank forming the legs, and the cream coloured transport forming the upper half.
I can't place the last one though.

The Takara Blockman is probably from the following series of that line:

Is it sad that I recognised all of those immediately? Anyway, the helicopter is another Robo Machine Combinator like the tank. Check out this lovely website for reviews on them both and a third: http://counter-x.net/gobots/reviews/robo_machine/helicopter_transport.html

(I say Robo Machine rather than Machine Robo as you've got the European versions)

Hence the French flag. Thanks guys. They're going up for sale if anyone wants to purchase them.
