So what happens when you finally get your hands on a Jumbo villian and decide it's not "machinder" enough for you? Well if you are Walter Harris, you get to work and solve thr problem yourself. Here's his already famous homegrown Grada K-7.
HEARTS ASTRO MU
Here's scans of the paperwork that came with the Capsule Robo G Jumbo Machinder. It's mostly propaganda about Nakajima's own creation, Astro Mu 5, and all the wonderful toys you could buy relating to it. A marketing idea that ruled supreme, well until Pokemon came along anyway. Check it out but don't stare directly into the radiating graphics, or you'll be lost for ever...
People write in all the time asking how rare something is. Since there's no official ranking of rarity and there isn't going to be one anytime soon, we here at Jumboland thought we'd throw together this loose listing of what we consider to be rare as hell and what we consider to be fairly attainable.
Consider this your ever growing encyclopedia of what's been for sale on ebay and how much it was going for. Good to referance if you are considering buying something and you want to know the going price, or if you're selling and what to know if anyone else has sold one recently.

Ccool prototype images of Grandizer and Dragun in this one plus more shots of the others. As far as I can tell it's not from a specific Machinder but was probably thrown in with several of them to hype up the other machinders, attachment arms, and current mail-in offers.

This catalog features images and descriptions of Gaiking, Daikumaru, Grandizer, Combattler V, Sky Zero, and Ground Zero. I'm not positive but I'm guessing it originally came with one or all of these Machinders. Here's five pages provided in all of their glory with some translations of what it actually says.

Half the fun of the Machinders was customizing them with your own array of insane weaponry. Called the "Cassette Weapons" in Japan because of their interchanagbility, these little wonders ran the gamut from flying fists to missile launchers, swizzle-stick-looking "photon beams," and even a giant clock. Several of them were included gratis with the American Shogun Warriors, but they were all sold seperately in Japan. (Talk about milking the kids for all they're worth.) There's even a giant castle for you to store the fists on when they're not in use!
