I've purposefully omitted Machine Robo Rescue and Mugenbine because I have no clue about either of them. Some 'assortments' have made-up titles - I've indicated where these are.

With thanks to Chris Olsen for his help!

Machine Robo Series

Where it all started. Small vehicles, around the size of a Matchbox car. Originally designed and manufactured by Popy before being taken over by Bandai. 55 figures were issued from 1982 to 1986, the majority of which were exported to the Gobots and Robo Machine lines. Due to the retail price of 600¥, the range soon became known as the '600 Series'. Packaging for the range was updated four times (the Popy 'silver' boxes, the Bandai 'diagonal' boxes, the Bandai 'spectrum' boxes, and the Bandai cards), and some figures were released in more than one style - similar to Gobots in America, successful figures would remain available for years.

Scale Robo DX

Most likely a response to Diaclone's Car Robot series, Scale Robo began as an attempt to market the Space Cobra Psychoroid figure within the Machine Robo line. The toy was joined by six figures modelled on realistic vehicles the following year. Popy designed the first three before being reabsorbed into Bandai. Scale Robo were much larger than the '600 Series'. Issued in the West as Super Gobots

CG Robo Era (1993)

CG Robo

A short-lived revival of the line, the CG Robo range extended to a dozen figures, around 150% the size of '600 Series' figures. All of these toys had working light and sound features, hence the name of the line ("Change & Glow Robo"). Only promoted by a CGI commercial, the line was short-lived. The first five figures were issued as Light & Sound toys for European line Robo Machines.
