G.I. Joe Cycle Armor

He rides the cycle a LOT

He rides the cycle a LOT better if you slide his legs inside the armor; you can see it in my review over at Joebattlelines:

I really enjoyed this guy. It's a pity he really only made it to some markets.

Tell me about it! I've never been able to find one locally. Kind of want one, but not going to go out of my way just yet. :)

Excellent toy! Thanks for the

Excellent toy! Thanks for the good eye as if I saw it at the store I would have never realized that it turned into armor.

It's a sleeper, I think if more people would have known about it they would have picked one up!

Quite funny I was planning to review my blue SNAKE in the next few weeks.....

I got this guy a few weeks ago. Luckily, I didn't have to search a while as one of my friends traded him to me. I love transforming motorcycle armor things. It's nice that there's one that's both affordable and pretty decent.

American MOSPEADA?

Hello from Japan!

Wow, that is uh..........strongly influenced by MOSPEADA's design!
Or, should I say "inspired" / "an homage"?

I can imagine that the designer could have been dying to make his dream come true...

Which company's toy?
They should ask me, I would volunteer to put a Ninja-like cooler name!
Ashiko? Ashiiko? ...hmmmm, that's lower than failing grade.

Hello and Welcome!


This toy was made by Hasbro, the same company that makes Transformers. It is possible that they had some of the same staff work on it.

I think it is great that a Japanese fan can read CollectionDX. I hope more Japanese fans visit, because we have a lot in common. As you can see we love a lot of Japanese toys here!

Hmm, that's a quite deep community site...!!!!!

Hello, Josh-san, itsumo otsukare sama! Looks like you've been doing some great job here.

That's an...amazingly deep community, I've kinda lost! So, I missed the basic information saying "Manufacturer: Hasbro"... :p

Yes, I was wondering why not so many Japanese join English-based communities? Hm, it's just Japan is both economically and culturally independent country, I suppose.
(Not about toy markets, but my favorite date tells us...World's Music Industry in Number, looks like only in US and Japan, intellectual property rights have been protected : having extra powers of economy. Additionally, Japan has been the largest music market since 2011. It shows people are not dead even after The Earthquake problem.)

I just tried escaping from Facebook community where people just push "LIKE" buttons. I prefer deeper communities. Am I just from the old school?
