1981: Mechatoros

The Mechabonica (“mechanical bones”) line was launched in 1981 as a “test balloon”. They didn’t do so well, so they got shipped off to America, as the OAR many of us old farts grew up with. In 1983, Tomy tried again, and I think you know the rest of the story.

Through some miracle I managed to find an MIB Mechatoros on Yahoo Japan, and I didn’t even have to give up any organs for it! No way in hell I’m opening this one. See OAR bird for a built one.
