Tanku Tankuro. Tanku Tankuro was created by the Japanese creator Gajo Sakamoto and appeared in the comic strip “Tanku Tankuro” (Yonen Kurabu, 1934).

Tanku Tankuro is a cannonball-shaped steel robot who has a number of special instruments and tools in his body which he can remove when needed. He can also change shape into a plane or a tank. With these abilities, it is no wonder that the Japanese Army puts him to use in fighting their enemies in China.
