    It looks like a squished down robot to me.

    If we had full sized cars that could transform, it would save from having to find a parking space.

    That thing transforms less than a Jumpstarter.

    It has about the same transformation complexity as a Burger King toy.

    "Its head also flips back to give any rider a comfortable seat."

    "OmniZero.9 puts his superiority complex to good use by punching his smaller cousin"

    So he invented some sort of perverted Decepticon. Wonderful.

    So it transforms basically, by falling flat on it's face?

    By the power of gravity, I command thyself to transform!

    There was that thread awhile back talking about the life-sized Gundam they already built in Japan. It was amazing.
