Number Android (combiner)
Review by kidchuckle
Finally we’re getting to the combined mode.. (here’s a quick preview)
The last piece of the puzzle.
Let’s just get into the transformation.
Here's a quick recap of the set in Number mode.
First will get the Body set up with Number 3. (Thunderbolt Number). Slide out the Mid section of the number 3. And then rotate the top end pieces.
This will form the head. With all the accents in Number mode and plane mode. I really wish they did a little bit of paint application on the face.
Next comes the arm Number 1 (Deity Eagle Number). Simple enough just rotate out the peg to join up the arm.
And the same with the other arm Number 4 (Tornado Number).
Then rotate out the bottom pieces from Number 3. That will form the thighs for the combiner.
Then Number 2 (Simulacrum Number) and Number 5 (Ark warrior) get pegged.
And the robot is complete. It’s simple process, but does the job.
There’s not a lot of articulation. It’s basically the arms rotate forward and back. The legs can rotate outward to the side. Unfortunately not to the front, and no knee articulation.
But it’s a simple toy. But kind of fun. I love the beefy width of this robot.
Here’s the back view. Not as interesting as the front.
Here’s a few posed pics.
Here’s another shot with a quarter as ref.
Is this worth buying? It’s probably not for most robot fans. But for a combiner it’s the cheapest you can get. For each robot it was $2 each (toonie).
Now I was doing a little more research on this robot. And I thought a few of the pieces felt like they would have been bigger at a larger scale (some of the plastic parts were just a bit too thin).
And behold, I found it!
Or in English I found it was called "Deformation combined digital magic team".>/b> I also saw it written as, "Genuine new Ericsson digital clan deformation combination transformers 12345 children's educational toys suit."
I’m not sure if what I have is a bootleg, or a scaled down version by the same company. But I noticed there’s a whole bunch of robot designs in the China market. Some of the online shops in China are littered with bootlegs and other’s their own Intellectual property. I’m very curious about the quality of it. I found one video of it here. But unfortunately it’s all in Chinese(Mandarin, to be specific), but you can see the transformation sequence). I’m tempted to get it. The paint apps look pretty cool. But if anyone has one, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
