Jeep Robo is a fictional character from the Machine Robo series introduced in 1983. He is a heroic Battle Clan warrior who is part of the Land Commander 5 team.

Machine Robo

Jeep Robo is a member of the Battle Clan who turns into a green military Jeep J57. Because of his mechanoid nature Jeep Robo does not need to breath oxygen and is resistant to cold, but is vulnerable to intense magnetic fields. His weapon of choice is his Ionoid Molecular Disintegration Gun. He also sometimes pilots the MRP2 Powersuit, which increases his strength by three times, allows him to fly and has enhanced radio capability. It also allows him to become part of Land Commander 5.

Reception
