This is actually the patent for the microrobot from Takara's microman line.

Actually the robot was sold under a few different names.

Micro Robot-1 was one of many Microman toys that were licensed by Mego and sold as part of the Micronauts line in the US. Mego changed the name to "Microtron" and the toy was sold as companion sidekick for Biotron. As with most Micronauts, the stickers were changed to remove any Microman reference such as MR-101 designation.

Yes it was, I think their are a few recolors out there and one came with a different head later on. The takara patent is for microrobot where as the CARP did not go into production and hit the stores until the mid 1980's. Hope this helps.

The next year takara came out with this variation 1977
