Owned him about 20-25 years. Metal feet and connectors. Only marking is a oval gold sticker that reads "Made in Taiwan" on his metal foot.

Click on this photo for the full pic.

I know the Army Ants in the top row. The second row I know the Gatchaman Popy Robot, Air Raiders and Starcom. I can picture the playset that the little blue guy came with, but not the name...kronoform on the bottom.

Close up.

TIA!

Interesting lot!

The blue robot in the first picture looks like some sort of Robotech Alpha figure. I might be wrong though, since I don't know much about that series.

The red robot next to it is a Convertors super defender X.

I don't recognize the bug-like figure in the same picture. Got any information on him?

I finally got around to organizing my whole collection. There were a number of MISC. at the end.

Good eye on the Robotech figure. It put me on the right path for figuring out he is a Gakken Henshin. Not the same line as the normal 80's robotech figures that I'm used to.

The Rhino Beetle is a Bandai branded toy. It say Bandai 1986 (or 1988?) G and on the other side it has some bubbly Japanese characters followed by "M-1" It transforms into an egg.

Thanks,
Joe

The blue one is a Gakken Alpha Fighter. Yours is the intermediate size, which can transform into all three modes - plane, diver, and robot. You are missing the back cover in robot mode, which simulates the wings fold, and the wings themselves, which can be removed. Still, is a rare piece.

"Henshin Robo" is Japanese for "Transforming Robot"... All the US Mospeada Gakken toys had that legend on top of their boxes; when they were packaged as Robotech they just said "Robotech".
