Review by JoshB
This is a scaled up version of Victory Robo from GoGo V. American audiences know it as the Lightspeed Megazord from Power Rangers Lightspeed.
It's about 4 inches taller than the DX robot, and made out of polyethylene, the same material as Jumbo Machinders. It fully transforms from vehicle to robot mode. It can hold a sword, and the arms even extend, just like the original.
Each vehicle has been scaled up by the bootleggers, but some of the detail has been lost. They also scaled up the stickers. It amazes me the lengths that bootleggers go to knock off an existing product.
The toy comes on a giant blister card, with scenes from the show and even the chogokin number printed on it. Along with Victory Robo comes 5 rangers, all the same mold but in different colors. The figures are actually G.I. Joe-type
figures with generic weapons. Very very cheap. The back of the card has the full transformation instructions.
As bootlegs go, this one is pretty cool. It's a little floppy, but looks great in your sentai collection.
