By inserting an optional battery, the muzzle of the robot's arm and SF gun mode glows. In the SF gun mode, the size that a person can grasp, pulling the trigger lights the muzzle purple. After turning on the pattern with the switch switch on the side, it automatically turns off in a certain time.
In the robot mode, pressing the switch on the side of the arm automatically turns off the light in a certain time after the pattern of the left arm laser lights up purple. With the old toy, it became possible to deform without removing the muzzle which was detachable at the time of deformation. It also comes with a stand for decorating in SF gun form, so you can bring it closer to the shape of animation setting by deforming the stand and attaching it to the backpack. Since each clutch is put in each joint, you can decorate with a free pose. Die-cast for each part, coil spring for the left arm cable. It also comes with a large number of replacement wrists and can be an impressive salute salute or a transparent fist of old toy images.
