I have attempted to build this figure in different way and modified for few times. This is an ultimate version that I finally happy with, especially the scale that I believed it is pretty much close to a motorbike. I managed to build this in a small size meanwhile to include those joints required for the transformation and articulation in robot mode.
Most of the features are still maintained as the original design which are include the headlight at the front, motorcyclist handle bar, air in-take of the engine on both side, a big rear red light, and jet engine outlets at the back.
Motorcyclist is well fitted on the bike.
Get ready to transform!
The front wheel spread into left and right which connect the robot arms.
The back of the bike becomes the cockpit. The robot head stored inside the front panel starts to turn out.
