    It's from Machine Robo: The Revenge of Cronos. It's the original Rom Stoll. It's the smallest bot which fits inside another bigger bot (Kenryu) which itself fits inside another bigger bot (Baikanfu).

    A new version was made recently for the Soul of Chogokin line.

    Here's a commercial for the original:

    Here's the CollectionDX review of the new SOC Baikanfu:

    Ah, so the first letter was ro and the last was ru, I was wondering what they were as I could only be sure of mu su to - . I tried searching various possibilities and Stoll came up though, it was a figure of the sister or something. Thank you for clearing it up. This sort of thing is hard to get out of my head.

    well I sure do appreciate the help with this chaos convoy, but what should I call it? rom stoll? Also, how hard expensive do you think it would be to gather the other components of this guy and to make him complete?
    I saw some of the animated clips and its looks pretty cool wonder if the series ever came to the us or had an english release

    Honestly, I don't know. I only have a passing interest in old Machine Robo toys. And I only know about this one because of the Soul of Chogokin release a few years ago.

    And yeah, his name is Rom Stoll.

    As far as I know, The Revenge of Cronos was an animated movie/OVA. You might be able to find it subbed or summat online.
