Choro-Q Convoy - Generation 1 - Figure

This is an absolutely fantastic mini Optimus Prime figure from Japan. It transforms differently to the original figure, in that both the cab and the trailer cannot separate and thus both transform into the robot.

In robot mode, he is about 1 to 1.5 inches high. He comes with a replica of his famous laser rifle which attaches to the top of his trailer in truck mode, which is a nice touch.

In both truck and robot mode, he is SD sized (Super Deformed) but this detracts nothing from the figure. An added bonus is that in truck mode, he is a Throttlebot! Pull him back and watch him zoom off to save the day (Cue annoying child whispering "Zoom-zoom!" like in the Mazda ads.)

The only thing that I would say is a negative point is that his shoulder joints (the only articulation he has) come loose often, but that's nothing a screwdriver won't fix. But this guy isn't really for heavy duty playing. He 's for sticking on your desk as a display piece and transforming occasionally. Because he's small, he'll be cheap, so I recommend picking him up if you see him.
