Bandai Five Robo

Bandai Five Robo

I don't know much about this series, other than Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman was part of the Super Sentai live action series and the Five Robo was produced as a "jumbo machinder" by Bandai. I also remember that this figure use to be everywhere and was one of the easiest for JM collectors to find - I know I didn't pay much for mine. As a JM it's shorter than most coming in at about 21 inches - it's also made of hard plastic instead of the common shampoo bottle material so many think it doesn't quite fit into a JM collection - but I think it does.

The figure turns into vehicle mode by laying on it's back - not much else is going on, other than a shooting left fist (the right fist holds a battery to power the lights so it doesn't really shoot), a couple of light-up guns and a clear light-up sword.
