X-Transbots MX-17T Taiho - Unofficial Masterpiece-Style Skids Figure Makes Unofficial Anime Tie-In

Every so often unofficial Third Party Transformers come up with something fun and completely unexpected. Such was the case with last year's announcement of X-Transbots' MX-17T Taiho, which has just been given a new photo gallery on their official Weibo page. Taiho is based on the Honda Today police vehicle car used by Natsumi Tsujimoto and Miyuki Kobayakawa, the main characters of Taiho Shichauzo (literally "I'll Arrest You!", titled You're Under Arrest! in the United States).

Taiho the series is a manga by Kosuke Fujishima, who would go on to create the popular Oh My Goddess and provide character designs for the Tales series of JRPGs. It's been made into several anime series, a film, and a live-action Japanese TV drama.

Taiho the transforming robot is based on X-Transbots' Masterpiece-style Skids mold known as Savant. (The Honda Today is actually an even smaller car than the City Turbo that G1 Skids was based on, but they're quite similar in appearance.) The figure includes figurines of Natsumi and Miyuki and a Honda Motocompo mini-scooter that stows in the trunk - a feature of the Diaclone Skids mold family and also a vehicle that figured regularly in You're Under Arrest. Taiho is currently scheduled for release around August.
