Review by JoshB
Alpha Trons is a KO of the Mach Lander from the Takara Land Bison set (from DaGarn). I got this guy during my last UK trip at a dollar store, as I had never seen one like this in the states.
The card is rather nice with die-cut edges. Sadly the print registration was off on this one, so it's a big messed up. Still you can make out the "Interchangeable Robot" logo.
I'm not sure if the toy is Alpha Trons, or Formula Car Robot Fighter, but as I am not likely to have another one, we're going with Alpha Trons.
The print registration on the back isn't bad, due to it being one color. Note the Gundam-like robot at the top.
The toy itself is very brightly colored and surprisingly well made. The plastic is firm and of a higher quality than it has any right to be.
You can see that this version is actually almost completely re-tooled from the original.
Articulation is decent, and like I said, due to the good plastic, it feels much nicer than a cheap bootleg should.
Car mode is decent also, resembling a formula 1 race car. Some stickers are present, and are nicely placed.
I love the "Sports" decals on the front spoiler.
Mach Lander has been knocked-off dozens of times, but this is one of the best.
