Blog #287: Toy Review: Transformers Kabaya Models Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber and Roadfire (Big Powered)

The newest series of Transformers Kabaya model kits are Dai Atlas, Sonic Bomber, and Roadfire.  The original toys of these guys were all Japanese exclusives, part of the Transformers Zone series.  This is a really beautiful set.

I have all three of the original toys these are based on, and I must say they have done a tremendous job turning them into models while preserving their original designs.  They are able to form all the same modes as the originals (though I neglected to take pictures of Lard Powered, a combination of Dai Atlas and Roadfire, and Sky Powered, a combination of Dai Atlas and Sonic Bomber).  The plastic is high quality and the stickers are far better than I would ever expect from models.

I am glad they chose to dedicate an entire wave to these rather than release them over multiple waves.  While collectors of Japanese Transformers will no doubt find these appealing, anyone not familiar with the Japanese exclusive G1 toys will find little interest here.

Thanks for reading!

    The plastic is excellent quality. It’s not quite the level of retail toys, but it’s pretty darn close (actually, it might be slightly better than some recent Beast Hunters toys). I’ve never had any Gundam kits, so I can’t speak to that.

    Great pics! I’m looking into picking these up myself. How would you rate the plastic quality compared to actual transformer figures or perhaps gundam kits?
