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.

The packaging reminds me of the Choro Q toys from the ’90s except you didn’t have to assemble this toy.

Freed from its plastic tray, this toy has the typical proportions of a Choro Q car. Details aren’t that intricate but there’s a printed GT-R marking on the back of the car.

The underside reveals the robot mode limbs. It also means this toy doesn’t run on a pull back motor but simply rolls freely on its wheels.

Transformation is quick and simple. Unfold the legs from underneath. IMG_4967 - Copy

Split the back of the vehicle, swing the panels forward to form the shoulders and unfold the forearms.

Move the roof down to form the backpack and reveal the head.

Rear view. Most of the robot is just bits of car.

As the shoulders, hips and knees are on ball-shaped pegs, there’s a bit of articulation. The head can rotate a bit but the front edge of the windshield would block the bottom of the head.

That’s it. Just a fun little toy to mess around with. There’s a whole lineup of mostly Autobots, with what seem to be identical transformations. I wanted to pick up a Jazz / Toyota AE86 but it wasn’t out yet when I bought this guy.
