    I found a transformer in my closet
    it transforms into a yellow firetruck

    it has a selector on its chest that switchs from white to yellow when a dial is turned

    it says nagoya tv'97 Takara on the sirial code

    it has blue knee things that you flip up in robot mode the sticker on them is a red triangle on a black back ground i would take a picture of it but my digital camera is f@#ked up

    and it has a silver arial on the right side of its head and a lightning bolt of its fore head

    ...then why even post?

    Anyway, if I didn't know better I'd think it was RaiRyu from GaoGaiGar but he was a dump truck. There was a fire truck of similar design in the series, it might be a knock off of him.

    Anything like this? http://www.toyarena.com/liqdeal/combinetruck/truck01.jpg

    But then it is spam, you wonder why people ignore you.

    If it is a Knock-off, see what the quality it is. Does it feel like your other transformers? Try Omegus Prime's picture for reference.

    Not a Transformer, but a Brave. He's Rairyu (lightning dragon) from the Brave series Gaogaigar, he's actually a dumptruck, one of the other versions of the mold was a firetruck (Enryu).

    Combined with Furyu, a green cement mixer, he forms Gekiryujin. He also combines with the fourth of the dragon mecha, Horyu, to form Genryujin. Got a couple of pics, too:

    [​IMG]

    Here's the four Ryus along with Gaigar, the main hero of the series they came from. Left to right, Enryu, Furyu, Gaigar, Rairyu, and Horyu. They're also got their accessories with them there.

    Here's the combined modes, with Energon Omega Supreme and Exkaiser's Ultra Raker. On the left is Rairyu and Horyu, as Genryujin, on the right, Enryu and Furyu form Goryujin. Awesome toys.

    Most likely it's one of Happy Well's Galaxy Defender knockoffs, they released all four Ryu molds from Gaogaigar. It's possible one of their fire trucks was in yellow.

    All four Ryus shared the same mold aside from head, chest, and whatever accessory defined them. The hose is a generic detail molded into the body of the figure.

    Man, the happy well knock-offs look cool.

    Nice to see you identified him, though I can't explain the hose, maybe you put it there a long time ago?

    Say, does anyone know the quality of those KOs?

    Would you happen to mean a round grey plug, about 1/3 to half an inch wide, attached to a decent length "T" shaped bit of plastic? That's actually a connector peg, used on all four molds for the different vehicle mode parts to mount on, he's got another one tucked away too which is where Choryujin / Horyu and Enryu attach their crane and ladder respectively in combined form.

    Yep, that would be the connector, then. The yellow dump truck bed would have attached there for vehicle mode, in robot mode you'd have removed it, the plug goes into a different position, then the dump bed attaches using a different socket to that peg.

    Rairyu can also stand in the dump bed, like he's riding it like a surfboard :)

    I remember those guys, I never did get one, rest assured I had my eye on them for a long while as a young'n. Wow, it took -years- to figure out what they really were, and they still don't look that bad...I say its time I hit ebay.
