    Probably, but they did pick some odd characters to do first

    Hasn’t seemed to be any news on that front.

    Meanwhile, I continue to check this thread in the hopes of seeing an announcement for a Leader-1 to go with my DX Bike Robo.

    Agreed. I hate this thread so much. I don't think I've been disappointed by single thread more ever in terms of the number of times I've checked, hoping for an update, only to be let down. I guess finding out they are done is news, just not good news. I still haven't opened any of them except Bike Deluxe!

    Haha, I wouldn't say I hate the thread since I sure am learning a lot about GoBots/Machine Robo in here. But the fact we're never getting a DX Eagle Robo is definitely disappointing!

    Well, one beyond the first back in the 1980s (okay, technically it was Big Machine Robo, not Machine Robo DX;) )

    Not to mention Unitroborn..I don't think there's any new releases now. Sure, Boonboomger has used tech from that line but man, what's the deal?!

    You know what? I'm making some new rules here. For those of you guys still wanting to army build some Battlehackers especially your Wheelmen, Boonboomger has this robot by the name of Byun Diesel/Byun Byun Mach Robo whom looks like he can fit right in your series:


    Sure he looks quite different but anything is better than no releases.

    There's also the Turbo Falcon Megazord which is only transformable in the American ver:


    Thanks a bunch for nothing, Action Toys.

    Probably Hasbro might make a Leader-1 out of nowhere. The Infernac Universe and possibly the upcoming Triple Jim (I dunno if its possible at this point) and the Machine Build are probably the only things coming in for MR/Gobots content and maybe DiscoTek Media if they decided to announce Machine Robo Rescue's disc out of nowhere.

    Glad you're having a ball, ma man but man, I'm just still very shocked that this lack of news is going on. Bandai should've made a new anime for Machine Robo and we'd all be glad for it.

    If Hasbro ever makes a new Leader-1 toy, they’d pretty much have to make him a remold of the Voyager Class Earthrise Starscream figure with a new head.

    Needlenose, huh? That's fine. I always thought the Seeker mold would suit Leader-1.

    Picked up Devil Satan 6, and ended up with a second Monsterous as part of the purchase, lol!

    Absolutely have no regrets as they are in fantastic shape.

    I give Devil Satan 6, an unprecedented 666 out of 10! :thumb

    Beware of the one named Groguillon/Heart Attack. He's voiced by the show's narrator Sho Hayami and the narrator is known for saying 'HEY BOYS!' very energetically and having a smooooth voice. Don't let him fool you!

    Years and years back I commissioned a custom of Classics Starscream painted grey and black with the head turned around. The execution was a disaster but the concept is pretty sound.

    It's not like they really tried either. At one point I reached out offering to buy 500 of Supercar/Turbo just to get it going. Lots of 3P runs were (are?) in the low thousands so I thought that was reasonable. They could scarcely have been less interested.

    I wonder how many orders would be enough to get them to reconsider? They should try a crowdfund…unless they no longer have the license

    Uh-oh, looks like the final nail in the coffin of Action Toys' Machine Robo line has been hammered.
