Matchbox Armoured Cyclone Photos

Just playing around with the camera settings again and using my Matchbox Armoured Cyclone as a model.

The Armoured Cyclone was originally part of the Genesis Climber Mospeada anime. Harmony Gold then ported the anime series as part 3 of their Robotech saga and out of that saga came this toy as part of its merchandising.

This toy is old and battered. When I bought it it was missing some stuff inside already. I originally used this as one of the vehicles of the GI Joe team whenever I played with my GI Joes. It was the right size and it was really a cool looking vehicle.

In the anime, the rider of this vehicle could ride it as a motorcycle then it could transform into an armored suit for the rider to use in battle.
