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
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
- 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
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.
