One thing I love about the Korean toy companies is that they have no fear. They
think nothing of taking two unrelated properties, say MachineRobo, and Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles, and making a crazy
mixed up toy.
With this toy, the Hyung Dae Tong Sang Co. has taken some Fiveman figures,
a dune-buggy, and a random unrelated VHS cassette and combined them into this
cool box set.
First of all, were there Six Fiveman figures? The figures themselves actually
appear to be from Goggle V. The motorcycle might come from Liveman, but I'm
not sure. The whole set is a mess. The VHS tape seems to be an animated baseball
program. It's like the toy companies just put a whole bunch of toys together
in a blender and spit these sets out.
The figures themselves are all plastic, and reasonably well made. They all
come with small weapons, hidden behind the VHS tape in a baggie. Five figures
can be mounted on pegs in the Fivecar. The car is pretty well made. The
motorcycle is all plastic with rubber wheels. You can try to mount any figure
to the cycle, but the handlebars are too soft to get a grip on and support
