    Two items I'm looking for more info on:
    First:
    http://s172.photobucket.com/albums/w5/jestor_777/robot/
    Unknown dump truck robot made by Marchon. Inc. 1984. Rear of vehicle/robot base is "powered/motorised". Rev it up on the floor a few times and then let it go. Brother had a similar one that was a crane (green in color, if I remember). The arm of the crane broke into 2 pieces to become the robot's arms. 1984 Sideswipe is there for comparison.

    Second:

    I'm trying to recall all of this from memory. The above is a piece to a large semi-transforming robot from around the mid 80's. Probably not older than 1986. Somewhat "Voltron-esk" looking (weren't they all?). The robot itself was mostly diecast metal. Easily weighed 1.lbs. to 2.lbs. Lots of sharp, pointy edges. (great toy for children!) Robot was probably around 12" tall. Limited articulation. Bent at the knees. Shoulders moved. Not sure about elbows. Had lots of pieces that attached to it. The robot could change into a "tank" or "spacecraft" depending on which pieces you changed or parts you attached. Had wheels. Yellow (maybe red) removable wings. Had spring loaded arms that hands/weapons could be inserted. The above piece was part of the larger "staff" weapons. The robot came with 2 of the pictured piece. These pieces attached to a "T-connector" and then the head pieces (sword & axe or spear) attached. Hands were blue in color. Hands were molded as fists and had a hole in the inside part of the fist that the "T-connector" pushed into. Chest of the robot was plastic. Chest swung open to the sides and the robot's head folded into the chest.

    Any info on the above items greatly appreciated.

    I've never heard of those two. I might recognise the second one if I saw a picture of him, but honestly, I've got no idea.

    Oh HELL YA! Thank you very much!!!!!!

    Thank you also!

    A few hours of sporadic searching and I get nothing. A hour & 1/2 here and everything is answered :D  Woohoo!!!

    And Grendel1979, I didn't even see the link to the picture parts you had in your post. Just noticed the "need help identifying" and went to work on what I could. Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees......
