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.

Perfect Choro Q Ultimate Tiger

Back in the late ’90s there was a particular line of Choro Q toy cars which could do more than just run straight when you wound them. Some had off-road suspension while others could move on water or on a tightrope. This particular toy has done away with trying to be part Choro Q, taking on what appears to be a specialised function.

Q Transformers Optimus Prime / Nissan GT-R

After a massive review of a huge toy, it’s time to go for something small. I’m actually a fan of the Choro Q series of toy cars since I was a kid, and over time those things have evolved quite a bit. I noticed this series of Transformers 30th Anniversary crossover toys at a department store in town and seeing how cute they were I decided to pick one up.

Soul of Chogokin GaoGaiGar – Part 3: Final Fusion

The main draw of this toy is the anime-accurate transformation which will be covered in this part of the review.

FINAL… FUUUUUSIOOOOON!

We’ll have to pretend there’s green stuff (“electromagnetic fog”) spewing from the sides of GaiGar’s waist while he spins around, enveloping the space around him.
