    greetings, so i recently bought one of those Mars converters at the local Walgreens. i was wondering what character should i turn this into. his alt mode is a 1956 or 57 Chevy so it could make a cool Big Daddy. ideas are welcome

    What does the packaging look like on these things??? I went to walgreens and saw MARS but not as cars.

    I think that's a 57 bel air...so, who resembles a bel air now days? Then make it the retro version of that. I'm thinking since 57 chevy's were made into Hot Rods.....well you get the idea...i hope

    yep. Definitely didn't get those at my walgreens. Maybe walmart?


    Anyway I hope you got the hint to do a retro "Hot Rod" :)  It'd be a cool theme piece.

    actually i think that would be sweet too. he would make an awesome retro Hot Rod i may just do that with this one and sometime later buy another to use a Big Daddy.

    Big Daddy is the obvious route... but a vintage Hot Rod also sounds epic! Is it possible to modify the hood so it folds down flatter in robot mode?

    These guys are pretty much Masterpiece sized... much bigger than Alternators. Kind of hard to fit them into the collection, but they are pretty awesome for non-brand transforming robots. Especially for the price!

    Yeah, not every Walgreens has them... I went into about 5 Walgreens in NYC looking, and only found them in one store, the big 24-hour one by Union Square.

    I also think Retro Hotrod would be killer. I'm going to have to go to my Walgreens and see if I can find any.

    I'm thinking retro Nightbeat... the car gives off a detective-type vibe to me.

    It would make for a nice updated Big Daddy since it shares the same alt mode as the original Big Daddy "1957 Chevy". Now I might have to stop by a Walgreens to see if I can find one :)

    I used to have this awesome comic where Hot Rod transformed into sometging similar to this, so I would suggest paint this into him! How is the quality on these things anyway?
