TRANSFORMERS

Okay, these are not really Transformers. But they are neat little toys that transform from one shape to another. 
 

Beast Fighters
 

First up is a four series set of transforming toys called "Beast Fighters". The four figures in the series are a Bat- Bot, Panther-Bot, Falcon-Bot and a Tiger-Bot. They generally are about three inches long. The card for each of these toys features artwork specifically for each "Bot". On the back of the card are the instructions for transforming the animal to its "Bot" form. I kind of like these toys simply because they are different from other transforming toys I have seen.The only thing that I would consider a minus is the fact that there are some loose parts that have to be attached to the toy. These parts could be easily lost.

 Here is the back of the card with the instructions for "transforming" the toy.

 
 



 
 

 

Titanic-Bot

Here it is! My favorite new toy. The name of this toy speaks for itself. Needless to say, the makers of this toy have attempted to latch onto the popularity of the movie. Actually, I think it was a neat idea. The makers even put the Titanic name on the toy ship.
This toy actually floats too. There are instructions and pics on the back showing how to wind it up and watch it sail. Well, it is supposed to float. Mine sank like a rock.
The only thing I don't like about this toy is the way the smokestacks stick out the front of the "Bot" when it is in its "Bot" stage. This toy goes well with my Train-Bot and my Truck-Bot (Both coming soon).
The Titanic-Bot measures about 7 inches long and 4 inches high in its ship mode. When it is in its Robot mode, the Titanic-Bot measures about 6.5 inches tall and almost 7.5 inches wide at its widest point.
 

Here is the front and the back of the card.

Space Robot
 

Next up is a toy sent to me by a fellow toy collector. (Thanks Eric Young!). It is a knock off of a real Transformer. If I remember correctly, this is a knock off of Rumbler. This guy measures about six inches in height. It's called Space Robot. I'm afraid to take it out of the package. It's my only one and I worry that it may fall apart on me.

 
 



 

RoboCop
 

Last (for now) is my RoboCop transformer. Okay, he really isn't a Transformer, his motorcycle is a Transformer. It is a neat toy. Unfortunately, the RoboCop toy that I ripped out of the package is at my sisters house. So a pic of the toy with the motorcycle in the robot state is gonna have to wait a little while. Next time I stop by my sister's house, I'll see if my nephew will let me borrow the toy for a couple of days. In the meantime, here is the toy in its package.
This isn't some little cheap toy. The card it is on measures 15"X11". RoboCop sitting as shown measures about eight inches from the top of his head to the bottom of  the tires on his motorcycle. He comes with a gun, rifle and some kind of high tech rifle strapped to his back. There is a sticker just below the handlebars that even says "RoboCop" on it. This, along with the Titanic-Bot are two of my neatest Transforming toys.
