Perfect Choro Q Reverse Spider

After laying my hands on a Perfect Choro Q that had a perfectly working gimmick I decided to push my luck and found this guy on sale for cheap on Yahoo Auctions. After jumping through several hoops since the site does not accept foreign credit cards, I received this but the shipping and transaction fees cost more than the low price of the toy itself.

Customable Choro Q Parts (Part 1)

I bought a bunch of add-on parts to mess with seeing as they were on discount. These things are meant for the Customable Choro Q series of toys, and are widely compatible across most of the cars. However, whether they actually do anything useful is a different matter.

Super Customable Choro Q V2 System 4WD Revolution

Takara’s answer to Tamiya’s Mini 4WD? Customable [sic] Choro Q. Engrish aside, these things were designed like their larger rivals to run on tracks with crazy things like jumps and loops. There were several series of cars over time, with the V2 System series appearing to be the most advanced-looking yet.

Perfect Choro Q Powered Gunner

Another toy from the Perfect Choro Q line of yore; the later toys in this series turned towards performing feats such as changing direction on their own or even hopping. I really wanted one of these when I was a kid but couldn’t afford them at the time, then they went off the shelves and I never saw them again, even though I can still vividly remember their packaging till this day. Apparently they weren’t very popular back then and Takara reverted to the Super Customable Choro Q line, this time branding it High Speed. I guess it’s because the gimmicks on these things usually never worked that well. When I saw this guy on sale for cheap on Amazon, I simply snapped it up alongside a whole bunch of other old stuff. Will it perform as promised? We’ll find out.
