The DX Kabutack Super Change Set comes from the show B-Robo Kabutack. (ビーロボ カブタック). B-Robo Kabutack was originally intended to be the third B-Fighter series after B-Fighter and B-Fighter Kabuto, but the tone was changed and it became more of a kids show with B-Fighter making guest appearances.
As part of the Chogokin line, you can bet it contains metal. Unfortunately, it’s not a lot of metal. Metal content is limited to the feet and a portion of the body. What makes this toy cool is the endless combinations and variations.
First you have the main robot, Kabutack. Kabutack has 2 modes, a cute looking “Civilian” mode, and a more aggressive “Fighting” mode. In each mode he can hold a weapon in his hands.
You also get two sets of armor; Drillut and Zabut. Kabutack can wear each set of armor in each of his modes, and then the armor itself can make a small vehicle when not in use. There is even a mode with the armor and Kabutack in vehicle mode. So, in total you have 10 modes!
- Kabutack “Civilian”
- Kabutack “Fighting”
- Kabutack “Civilian” Drillut
- Kabutack “Fighting” Drillut
- Kabutack Drillut
- Kabutack “civilian” Zabut
- Kabutack “Fighting” Zabut
- Kabutack Zabut
Drillut mode features rolling wheels and the tip of the drill spins. Zabut mode features a firing grey missile from the tip of the submarine.
Some assembly is required, and stickers need to be applied. Unfortunately, these are the crappy mid-90s foil stickers, and they tend to peel off over time.
Otherwise, this is a very cool toy. Yes, it is goofy looking, but it is a lot of fun and will definitely keep you entertained.
