The Radio AM Robot may look like a cross between Megatron and Soundwave, but he's probably the only Transformer who can pick up the farm report—in Spanish!
Radio AM Robot (AM radio, 1987)
An original mold that takes design cues from Generation One Megatron (head), Blaster (hips), Omega Supreme (arms), and Soundwave (lower legs), Radio AM Robot transforms into a working AM radio powered by a 9-volt battery.
He was released only in Argentina by Comando Toys, and was available in two different color schemes: one baby blue, blue and grey, and one very dark green and red.
Curiously, the Radio AM Robot is equipped with a sword that is almost an exact duplicate of the sword included with the first Japanese release of Generation One Megatron, though the handle is shaped differently.
Radio AM Robot was produced under license by Comando Toys of Argentina, and sports both the official Transformers logo and a 1987 Hasbro copyright on his box. What relationship Comando Toys had, if any, to fellow South American toy companies Antex or Estrela is unknown.
Nowhere on his box is Radio AM Robot indicated as an Autobot or a Decepticon. However, as no Decepticon-branded toys were evidently sold in Argentina until Generation 2's Robot-Man X and Robot-Man Z, it is possible that Radio AM Robot is an Autobot by default.
The color scheme depicted in Radio AM Robot's box art does not appear to have been used on an actual toy.
