ToyFarce: Bandai Machinerobo Universe Unitroborn review and images

It's Wednesday, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review!

This week, we're having a look at the wacky, nonsensical combiner transforming robots that are the Machinerobo Universe Unitroborn from Bandai! The first time I saw the pictures, I thought it was some funny parody photoshopped images that someone made for fun (a bit like yours truly does...). Well, it turns out they actually exist, and they were pretty cheap ($8 to $15 each). So it was inevitable... I had to grab them.

My first impression when I opened the package (thank you, HobbyLink Japan!) was that they are way bigger than I expected! For $8, I thought they would be maybe 4" tall when combined, but nope: The Christmas tree is perfect size for 1/12 figures, the apple is the size of an apple, and the vehicles are bigger than Hot Wheels cars. And I thought I'd have enough space on my shelves to display them...

First, Unitroborn Apple Lobster, the one with the biggest elements to combine. One of the great thing about those robots is that they 'auto-combine', in the sense that you just need to 'clip' them together in order for them to open and turn into a robot on their own. I tried to make mini-videos/gifs for each, to show how easy they are to combine + Marvel Legends The Hood for size. It turns into a great looking robot that reminds me of some Sentai/Power Rangers villains.

Unitroborn Bulldozer Burger also does not make any sense, considering it has either a burger that is nearly the size of a car, or a bulldozer that would fit on a table, if they are of the same scale. The robot form looks a bit more like a Transformer than the other ones.

Unitroborn Taxi Tree is the funniest one, as it turns into a T-Rex (with legs made of pine!). The tree becomes its tail and legs while the Japanese green taxi becomes the front part, with an articulated mouth. Who would have thought that a taxi and a pine tree would become a dinosaur?

Unitroborn Beetle Steam Train is the most puzzling one. The entire train becomes a four legged body with a tail, while the beetle just opens in the back to reveal a mouth and become the head... That is kinda the laziest design of all six, in my opinion. The beetle could have become wings or something...

Unitroborn Shark Vending Machine, one of the smallest ones, is actually the size I thought they would all be. The design is pretty fun, he has half-sharks for arms! In terms of advantages in combat, shark arms are pretty high in the list.

Unitroborn Plane Eraser turns into a robot wolf, which looks great. Another one of those puzzling combiners, that leaves you concerned for whoever came up with the idea... "What if we had an eraser and a plane, and it turns into a robot wolf? - Did you take your medicine, todayn buddy?"

That is it for the first wave of Machinerobo Universe Unitroborn! Bandai has since announced 2 more robots, Ambulance Cake and Pineapple Bus, which I will most likely get to complete the line!

These are kinda cool in a weird unnecessary way. I might get a couple!
