I’ll make this a quickie review. This guy is from the TV series Ryukendo, and goes by the name of RyuGunOu. His companion here is Magna Wolf, sometimes Magna Bike. For obvious reasons.
So, quickie. I can ramble on, but no! I shall not. RyuGunOu is pretty well detailed for what he is, but it’s the articulation that’s surprisingly good. No elbows, but he’s got more than I thought he would, and is able to strike a few decent poses.
Magna Wolf/Bike is pretty good. It’s a little more complex than G1 Transformers, although it’s got nothing on modern TFs. Still, it succeeds in both wolf and bike mode. Wolf is pretty decent for a beast mode, but the bike is surprisingly successful.
Comes with a gun, instruction sheets, a key, and a couple cards. Nothing fancy but not bad.
A surprisingly good toy. Not something I’d recommend desperately searching for. If you’re a fan of “old style” toys such as G1 Transformers or Power Ranger Megazords, this guy is quite good. He’s not Masterpiece, but less of a brick than I thought he’d be. Recommended if you see him for dirt cheap.
Pros: Looks neat, surprisingly good articulation.
Cons: No elbows, but otherwise, nothing left wanting.
