    Wasn't there a bus bot that was supposed to come out years ago?


    Anyway, this looks pretty cool.

    This one "10 Inches Deformation Of The Bus Transformation Robot Car Toys" from Aliexpress, I won't buy it. (I don't know why one of them has Korean words on it), but I saw similar toys in dollar store or flea market once, the quality is really bad.

    It appears to be a new company's toy.

    Also, it's a combiner. The other cars have no robot mode, just vehicle and combiner form.

    Awesome, i miss the days of the ROTF toyline when we could get toys with all kind of unusual alt-modes.
    I've actually been thinking of Transformers with farm-alt modes, a Harvester-TF would be awesome :dj

    The reason those buses have Korean on them is because they were made here, following the boom of the 2007 movie. They're omnipresent! Every store that could possibly carry toys has a transforming bus stuck in a corner somewhere. Think of them as Korea's cheap alternative for Transformers, because our toy stores don't get enough official ones.

    The combiner feature I don't know about and the ones I found had no such feature, but the arms seem to be knockoffs of this guy.

    Some of you might realize him, he's been around for some time on the "Transformers on eBay" section... and he's quite famous in Korea, keeping his spot in the top 5 presents a kid might want for Christmas. Sadly, the knockoff is nowhere near as cool or wanted.

    This thing reinforces my belief that Transformers is in dire need of a bus Transformer.

    That green taxi car is pretty sick. Pity it is not a transformer itself or we dont have decent looking alts like that.

    Heh, a Pony... that was one of the first cars our nation ever produced. Nice to see it get a (psuedo-) transforming toy.

    I like it because it is muscle car inspired, like a ford capri mk3 in Europe. Dirty.

    One of the things I made up as a kid in the Eighties was an Autobot farm vehicle combiner team; they were called Harvestor in gestalt mode and brandished a mighty scythe.

    It's "Road Saver" from Korean Sonokongs original property "Hello Carbot". It and "Sky Saver" are the season 2 combiners.

    Sonokong only started Hello Carbot because Young Toys was so sucessful with Tobot. But I'm not sure if this particular case counts as a knockoff.
