Missile Tank Robo
Missile Tank Robo is a fictional character from the Machine Robo series. He is a member of the Battle Clan who turns into a missile tank. He was introduced as a toy in 1982, but did not appear in fiction until 1986
Missile Tank Robo is a heroic member of the Battle Clan who turns into a missile tank. Because of his mechanoid nature Missile Tank Robo does not need to breath oxygen and is resistant to cold, but is vulnerable to intense magnetic fields. His weapon of choice are his arm-mounted Ionoid antitank missiles. He sometimes pilots the MRP2 Powersuit of Land Commander 5, which triples his strength and allows him to fly. He can also use the suit to combine into Land Commander 5.
In July 2017 Action Toys announced that their Missile Tank Robo would be released in August.
