Autobot Mirage

Transformers Vintage G1 Mirage

I love the original Transformers/Takara car robots, Mirage is a perfect example. The car mode is nice and realistic, with rubber wheels and a bit of chrome. Bot mode seems to come from nowhere but has well formed arms,legs and some articulation also. I never realized what a cool head sculpt he has, very cool stuff!

G1 articulation, aww yea!

Autobot Hound

Transformers Vintage G1 Hound

Hound was one of my earlier Transformers, and after looking at him again after many years I am very impressed with all the details. The Neat Army deco, the chrome bits and guns, Hound is a great Toy!

Hound was released as part of the initial Autobot assortment in 1984, transforming into a Mitsubishi J59 Jeep. Hound was originally released in the Japanese Diaclone toy line in 1982.
