    Third-party transforming robot. Could be the same one that made the bus and Titanic.

    Whoever made it I'd love to get my hands on one. I love train transformers but bullet trains are all that Hasbro does anymore, they make cool vehicles in real life but as toys they're just boring...

    I think Littlewoods / Index used to sell those over here. But, with Littlewoods gone (at least locally), I don't know if they're that common anymore.

    what?!? I want them all! I've got a huge collection of transforming trains, basically all of the brave and tf ones, and would love that, as well as the bus and titanic. got any pics of those?

    It looks like the STD version of Avenger for the Brave series. Or a knockoff version of it , but doubt that's it

    I thought it might have been a Brave, I know the series was big on trains. But a friend of mine is big on the series and even he didn't know where it came from.

    Yeah, I dont think it is eaither. It looks inspired by it a little. Maye it's a twisted ko blend of 2 different characters? like that Galaxy Shuttle/Voltron ko


    Would love an old TF steam engine , hope this has some good quality to it

    It's not a Brave. Advenger is close, but his wheels never mounted up as wings. His transformation was a bit more complex too, with the arms folding up under the front of the train not the body, and the lower body rotated to keep the wheels to the rear.
    None of the other Brave steam engines even vaguely resemble this design (most were bullet trains, there were all of three that looked like this, one of them was Advenger, the other two are Might Gaine (very very different) and Dagdrill (partformer)

    That thing was in Littlewoods a LONG time ago. Even if they were still running I doubt you'd be able to get one.

    I have had one of those in my store for the last year and no one wants it. If you want it, feel free to contact me and we can see what we can do.

    That's actually a pretty sweet Train Bot... especially for a no-name toy! I've never seen one before.

    I have the Titanic-Bot (literally what was written on the package). It was the absurd concept and the slick box art that grabbed me on that one. he doesn't look nearly that cool transformed though.
