Transformer Model Kits?

Post by takenoko » Tue Jul 27, 2010 4:14 am

Does anyone remember in the 80s, there were these Chinese model kits (you could buy them in Chinatown)

They were basically a kit where you put together a Transformer (I assume these were bootleged from the actual model). Plus it came with a stick of delicious orange gum

If anyone has any idea on what this toy series was called or where I can just look at pictures of the boxes or completed models of them, please let me know in this thread

Went to Kabya's website, i really want the Metal Warrior kits. Each one has two forms Warrior and Monster, and it also appears you can combine more then one set together. Of course I can't tell really seeing as I don't read Japanese.

The Duel Knights are also pretty cool from that site

Ah, I think that is it. I still have some of parts from my old kits. Kind of wish there were pics of the boxes though

I recently found a kabaya optimus prime kit in my local asian grocery.. He's not bad. Have to hotswap the arms in transformation which is a pain. Its moulded in red, blue & white. Looks like this:
