Review by JoshB
Mereo (メレオ) is the last of the Bioroids that i'm going to review (at least this time around). It's animal form is that of a chameleon, which was of interest to me because my daughter just recently had a chameleon. I was able to compare the animal forms and got a greater appreciation of the attention of the design.
Mereo serves the reconnisance function of the Deltaforce. He's not a fighter and is often bullied, and therefore longs to defect to the Trianforce.

The box is as awesome as the others.
In animal mode, it looks very much like a Veiled Chameleon. It even has the split feet, a nice attention to detail. One thing my daughter's chameleon lacked was the weaponry.
In robot mode Mereo is one of the more interesting looking. The head looks like an evil elf, with large pointy ears.
Articulation is decent with shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, waist and head. Still, you can only do so much with these.
I'll be honest - the original draw of the line was the relative obscurity and the amazing box art. The toys themselves are lackluster but I really enjoyed the process of discovery with them. They are not the sort of thing I will display, or even keep in the long rung, but they were an interesting subset to explore.
