While you may think that all Korean robots are cheap plastic knock-offs, that is simply not the case. The Fuujin (Wind God) cycle is a quality, die cast transforming motorcycle.
Fuujin comes packaged in a window box, and the cycle is secured to a plastic base plate by twist-ties and a screw. You need a really thin phillips-style screwdriver to remove it.
The motorcycle is beautifully detailed. Both tires spin, the kickstand goes down and the front steering works. The instrument panel is detailed as well.
Transforming the Fuujin is easy.
- Simply pull the front and rear apart, and then open the seam on the bottom.
- Twist the body 180 degrees and then swing down.
- Pull the real wheel apart to form the legs.
- Swing the side body panels around and unfold the arms.
- The head pops up from the gas tank.
In robot mode the Fuujun is not that poseable, and lacks a gun (although one is pictured on the box). Still, it's fun, and the wheels as feet are a nice touch.
Construction and paint are excellent. A good portion of this toy is die cast, and the the craftsmanship is amazing.
I have seen this toy in English, Korean, and Japanese packaging, and there are several different paint applications.
