    Hey guys,

    I've uploaded an article about the 12 Charger (Windcharger) and 15 Gong (Brawn) model kit released by Takara and Seven in Japan back in the 80s.

    The kit features Windcharger in black and red looking an awful lot like KITT from Knight Rider and even more crazy, a black/red Brawn that transforms like Bumblebee with a Bumblebee head!

    The article is about the second release of the set. The first set had inverse colours. I've seen the pics floating around before and hope someone can post them up in the thread.

    All the best
    Maz

    That is SO COOL. And so.... weird. Seeing Brawn's body with Bumblebee's transformation and head..... it's like waking up one morning to find that your dog and cat have switched colors. Or something. Anyhow, super cool.

    That black and red Windcharger is awesome, too. The red "eye" and the longer back end on the car REALLY make it look like KITT.

    Man, you always post the neatest stuff, but it is painful too because most of us is stuff that us mere mortal collectors will never possess. :)
