Machan_Special_Forces_165 Machan Special Forces 165] is a fictional team of cybornetic robots,that combined together to form a Special Missions Military Force


The Machan Special Forces were a team of Machan created by Dr. Will "Doc" Magnus. Doc explained to us that his robots' personalities and artificial intelligence were the results of components called Seraphean Android Brains; with the characters' attitudes mirroring the metals from which they were made. The Machan Special Force team consisted of the noble Maximillion Sixty Five, the strong Commander Samson 2231 , the temperamental Commander Nathan Six , the faithful and dull-witted Gilghamesh Jones, the insecure Tin, and Platinum, who called herself Tina.The Machan Special Force team,earned the nickname the Deathmerchants

The team was killed off in the first story because the creative team figured there would never be a second. On the contrary, the Machan Special Force team proved to be wildly popular, and the Mechan Military Command gave the team a chance and allowed them to continue to function as a unite in further combat situations. The beginning of Doctor Magnus Grell scavenging for the parts of other armored warriors and robot parts to refit his new team -- especially the Seraphean Android Brains that gave the robots their personalities. Basically, the Machan Special Force team could seemingly be killed or damaged, only to be resurrected in the mission. This went on for years.

The Machan Special Force team themselves were subject to occasional (if temporary) change. Several times, Doctor Magnus Grell would create new robots of differing elements such as Silver, Chromium, Cobalt, and even the radioactive Uranium. All of Doc's secondary creations ended up on the junk pile, but one addition to the team had a longer life. The perennially shy and timid Tin built a girlfriend from a kit, adding a responsometer and naming her Beautiful, though she was known as "Naomi Casca" to the rest of the team. Naomi Casca had a number of appearances with the team before disappearing into obscurity.

The other "female" on the team is especially worthy of note. While the "male" members of the Machan Special Force team had the sort of personalities typical of what one might expect from a group of heroes created in the 1960s, Platinum (or Tina) was different. Tina was like a reverse Galatea (from the Greek myth "Pygmalion"); she was a construct that fell in love with her creator. Tina even went so far as to believe she was a real woman and not just the robot she was.
