Machine Robo Revenge of Cronos Eagle Steam (AKA Masterpiece Gobots Loco)
I tried not to buy anymore Masterpiece Gobots, but I just can’t pass on a transforming train, and Steam, AKA Loco, is a really great toy.
Loco’s alternate mode is a Japanese JNR Class D51 steam locomotive. What I find very cool is that he’s not just any JNR Class D51 steam locomotive, but his #D-5147 is an actual JNR Class D51 that is now preserved in a park in Japan. Many Transformers use real world alternate modes, but other than some of the race cars, I can’t think of any Transformers that are based on a specific iteration of real a life vehicle. His steam engine mode looks great. In robot mode he has a great head sculpt and D-5147 on his chest just like the original toy.
Thanks for reading!
