    Why would you bid on an eBay item when you don't know what it is?

    btw, my guess is really cheap knockoff. But I'm no expert.

    Surely the auction description at least had some hints, right?

    Link?

    I'm pretty sure it's a early 2000's Bandai Gobots combiner thingy. It came out I think around the same time as R.I.D.

    Y'know, the ones we'd always see at BigLots where the arms and legs are all the same robot, but the center robot is a bit bigger and different.

    I bought the toy because I have seen the toy before and I wanted one, but I don't know anything on what toy line it came from or any storyline. That is why I asked. I did not ask to be insulted. I figured that there has to be someone on these boards that can enlighten me about this toy. I did not expect to insulted on it. Because of that I will defend myself. I am grateful to anyone who takes the time to answer my questions. I bet when alot of you got your first Transformer you didn't know alot about them, but that didn't stop you from buying one.

    Its a Machine Robo Rescue. Special Ex Gattai (Combine) Set. Burning Colour. The rest is too hard to see because the pic is too small.

    I'm trying to find pictures, and here's what I've found:

    Google Image Result for http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/SnapTrap/MRM/19269921009_011.JPG.jpg

    Google Image Result for http://www.toysnjoys.com/mrr/mrrsubmarine07.jpg

    The set you just bought is this:http://www.toysnjoys.com/mrr/mrv01specialexfusionset.jpg

    It is called "Machine Robo Rescue: MRV 01 Special EX Fusion Set: Burning"

    "Machine Robo Rescue is a series from Bandai. This is the DX Siren Garry Robo. It is a big Convoy that has compartments that open and contains a Police Car and Bike. It can also transform into a robot."


    Basically you have 1 main guy, who is say for example, a Police Car. He forms the head, torso, and pelvis. Then you have 4 smaller guys that come with him but they are all the same (in both robot and vehicle) as say, 4 small Police motorcycles...EXCEPT, 2 of the 4 small guys form a right and left arms, and the other 2 small guys form the right and left legs.

    Combine all 5 robots to form one large robot that, unlike Generation One transformers Combiners, is perfectly symmetrical on both sides.

    Hope that helps!

    They're updates of Bikerobo, so yeah, you could say they're neo Cy-Kills.

    The great thing about that MRR set, you can also combine all nine components into a single big robot. There are enough connector ports to do it with some imagination:

    I wouldn't mind adding that set to my MRR collection, but the price is always higher than I'd like it to be.

    That set looks neat.

    I have thought about picking up some of the Big Lots versions of Machine Robo Rescue but I am always worried the quality will be bad.

    I figured for $22 total, I couldn't lose that much.
