    I recently found these at my local MARC's:

    They had about 14-15 Different Trucks etc. and some very large Transformable Motorcycles for $4.99!! These are so cool and mostly Die-Cast Metal & they are cool as fuckin' hell!! The only bad thing...My Marc's only had the blue one & one all in red NONE of the other one's.

    I don't know about you but hook a trailer on this guy give him a new paint job and you have Motormaster.......:thumb

    Do the arms just pull off for vehicle mode?

    If so, that's a shame, incorporating them would increase the cool factor tenfold.

    Seems like there's millions of toys out there like that.

    Cool though so long as it doesn't fall apart when you breathe on it!

    I have one in the style of the long nose trucks. We had a thread on these a few months ago. The amount of diecast is great for how much you pay for it.

    I have the locomotive and the city-bus that company put out. Unfortuantely they weren't doing diecast back then, but the toys are a damn-nice plastic quality. They almost look like they're straight out of a Brave series, just without all of the chunky asymetrical animal heads thrown on.

    Looks like the front of the cab opens, and they can fold out.

    Cool if it is that way, but utterly lame if you have to put the arms on manually.

    Give any truck TF a trailer and new paint job and it's Motomaster by fan standards. This guy looks nothing like him.

    I got this one recently. I haven't taken him out of the box. Not for value's sake, but I think he'd only get less fun from here.

    How so??? As an Alternator..I think he's close besides he doesn't have to be 100%

    Arms do fold out (They hide behind the cab)

    Not to be a pain, but could we get a couple more pictures of the rear of the figure, and maybe a bit of transformation pictures (showing how the arms & head unfold)?

    Otherwise, he looks pretty spiffy, I could definitely see someone using this as a base of a custom figure...
