Early pics of the RetroBase designed by Bob Adams.
Better pics to follow later. :) Additional parts are mostly from the
Interchangables version of Astrostation and a Playmobil set.
Azone prepares to catapult Angel Traveller Caryn!
Here is the Surveyor-like Rescue Machine 3-4-5 in combined
mode accompanied by 275 Richard riding the Search Machine (both included in the
set). Note the little Rescue Machine 5 "Bird Heli" simply rests on the
back...it has no connectors of any kind. The Helicopter lacks any
interchangability and just seems to be a ServoMachine-style toy added as a
bonus. I also haven't copied the decals yet so I will take new pics after
they have been applied.
Rescue Machine 3: Bird Jet can seat two figures. The
large red fins are triggers to launch two small red missiles in each engine
pod. The landing gear is retractable and each pod has about 5 or 6 5mm
Rescue Machine 4 "Bird Base" has three modes
actually, one I did not photograph, which is its vehicular mode...simply the
same mode as 3-4-5 combined minus the jet and heli. Above is it in its
open, horizontal position. The Search Machine can be lauched from the
"Rescue Dash" catapult. Unfortunately the Search Machine is just
barely too wide to fit inside RM4 in is mobile form. However, the Heli
fits inside just fine, and it also makes a great personnel carrier. The pair of
chairs visible here come with the set as well.
Here is RM 4 in its vertical configuration. RM 5 Bird
Heli is resting on a minature Heliport. The Search Machine can be changed
into a seat and attached to a multi-jointed "joint arm" that is not
very visible in this pic but is holding it up.
Dan Dash AutoBuggy Custom
Here is Dan Dash wearing his motorcycle duds (a jacket
borrowed from Han Solo) and riding his custom painted Ultronic Scooter/Auto
"These are not the 'borgs you are looking
for..." This is simply a Episode One speeder with some added Microman
Battle Cruiser Mecha!
Simply a modded GI Joe Star Brigade mecha....
Rescue Centaur & M10Ex
This is one of the three Micronaut-like Aliens from the GI Joe
Star Brigade series, "Carcass". His chest is clear so you can
see his insides, like a Henshin Cyborg toy. I added a pulsing light inside him
to make his heart throb.
