Rescue Command 1-2 box set.
Rescue 1-2 Set came with the same accessories
as the individual Jetter and Bongo toys. However, the set came
with different pack-in figures. Instead of M251 Robin that came
with Jetter, Takara instead included Mushikeller
Amazon Monster Mushikeller.
Amazon monster is a simple vinyl figure.
M261 Chris (vintage)
Takara released Rescue Command 1-2 box set in
1979. The set included the two Rescue Command vehicles - Rescue 1
Jetter and Rescue 2 Bongo together in one box. The set came with two
complete vehicles along with all the accessories that were included in the
individual package versions. The set, however, came with one Microman
figure M261 Chris (which was sold with Bongo) and one Amazon Monster
Mushikeller instead of M251 Robin. Mushikeller was a vinyl figure that
sold with Amazon Acroyear A371 Blue Commander. This marked the
first (and only) time that Takara actually included a villain figure with
Microman vehicle play-set.
Rescue Command 1-2
Rescue Command 1-2 was simply a combination
of Rescue Jetter and Rescue Bongo. When the rear section of Jetter was
removed, Bongo could be dock into the rear section. Jetter rear
section contained groove which allowed it to hold Bongo in placed.
This was base on the idea that Bongo would be used as all-terrain rescue
vehicle while Jetter would be used as a lifter to transport Rescue
Bongo. Takara probably released Rescue 1-2 as a set in anticipation of
the upcoming Rescue 3-4-5 set.
