Choro Q (also known as
Penny Racer in the US) was a series of deform cars with pull-back motor
introduced by Takara in 1980. Takara later added other Choro Q
spin-off line such as this Choro Q Robo. Choro Q Robo was deform
robot that can transformed into Choro Q car.
In 1999, Takara
reissued Choro Q Robo toys from 1980's in conjunction with the 20th
Anniversary of Choro Q line. The set, called "Come Back Choro
Q Robo Spirit", was most likely introduced to jump start a new
Choro Q Robo series. The set
consisted of the reissue Choro Q Robo Votoms, Dougram, Gorg and Galient.
I am not sure if there
were any other Choro Q Robo that Takara reissued since this was the only
set I ever ran across. This set came from my friend Rik Ruff who
was station in Japan at the time.
