This is one of those times

This is one of those times when a vehicle set is so cool even it doesn't turn into a robot.

I love the color scheme and Tomy has always been known for the quality of their toy cars/trains.

I had been eyeing the minifigure sets in this line, but MAN I didn't know the vehicles rocked so much! That is AWESOME!

Reminds of this toyline I had in the 80's called Lil' Playmates. Anyone recall those?

I was introduced to the Tomica trains when a bunch of sets showed up at the discount retailers for half off. Picked up one on a lark, liked it so much I had to get the rest. I'm not big into train/car playsets, but the build quality and features are uniformly great.

I don't know how many times I've picked up the Storm Runner and carried it around the store. LOL. But I can never pull the trigger. I think it's because it reminds me of my Peace Carry, which I love to death. Container cargo ships always grab me (like Thunderbird 2).

I regret not picking this up for $7...

I saw this for $7 on clearance, but I didn't pick it up. Regrets..... Do you know if they canceled this line in the US? The other transforming vehicles on the Japanese Tomica website looked really cool! I wonder why this didn't catch on.
