How can a head-phone stereo become a robot!!

  • Mini Change Series
  • Micro Change Robot
  • MC-10 Cassette Man with all parts and accessories
  • Taiwan Takara c.1983

MicroForever! says:

Takara released MC-10 as part of the New Microman Micro Change Series in 1983. Micro Change were a series of Microman robots and vehicles that can disguise themselves as ordinary household items. In the case of MC-10 he was a Micro Change Robot disguised as a “Walkman” style portable cassette player. It came with clear plate that can be opened so the Micro Change Mini-Cassette can be placed inside

Cassette Man was the second largest robot in the Micro Change series that were released by Takara. It was also probably the most recognizable one next to the MC-13 UNCLE Gun Robo since this toy would eventually became one of the more popular Transformer toy – the Decepticon: Soundwave. (MC-13 became the infamous Megatron) The Deception symbol was base on Soundwave head. Soundwave version of the toy has “Cassette Man” and the “MC-10” designation removed from the chest

TMNT Raphael & Donatello with Sewer Slider & Shell Cycle

TMNT 2002 Sewer Slider Shell Cycle Raphael & Donatello

Turtles don’t even need solar freakin roadways when they have this awesome Sewer Slider. In reality it’s a transforming tunnel transport vehicle… so if traveling difficult ground or their tires (or legs) get blown off they simply rotate the wheels and convert mode to hover!

More danger? No problem… pull the tri-pipe exhaust to launch lethal ninja stars! Stabiliser wing missing from the back in these pics, but otherwise very good with no damage. Comes with 4 ninja star discs (originally six). The Sewer Slider comes with a 5 inch Donatello action figure from 2002

The Shell Cycle is the turtles fast blastin’ motorcycle. Missing its tin can missiles and measuring 8.25 inches long. Comes with 6 inch Raphael action figure from 2005

This pair of vehicles were brought out together by Playmates in 2002 and sold last month for £25 from our eBay listings

Fright Sight Armon MUMMIES ALIVE 1990s Action Figure Schreck Gestalt

This is the odd, rare and unusual Fright Sight Armon (Mummies Alive Series 2). He appears to be cunningly disguised as a French mercenary from the 1960s; clearly hoping his seductive accent and cheeky blue smile will distract attention from the bandages and stink of rotting flesh. Currently available from our eBay listings

Push his left arm down to spin the head around to reveal a snake faced monster!

A full six inches (15cm) tall (with his fright head up!) he has a gold right arm and bandaged left arm

Series 2 Mummies Alive Toys were never released in North America, only in the United Kingdom and Europe. Apparently they were a rather limited release produced by DIC & NOR in 1998 for Hasbro

Fright Sight Armon may have only been released in Germany, where he was known as “Shreckgestalt Armon” (or possibly Schreck Gestalt?) http://www.lkessler.com/mumtoys.shtml

Armon is in excellent used condition with no damage. He has a little paint loss on the cap, the elbows and the medallion. On his legs it states: HASBRO CHINA ©1998 DIC & Nor. Lts,

What does Wikipedia know?
Mummies Alive! is an American animated series set in ancient Egypt. From DIC Entertainment – originally aired only for one season in 1997. Armon is huge and eats very often. He is very strong even when he has not transformed. He is missing his right arm and when he transforms he obtains a golden arm that is used as his weapon. His armor resembles a ram. In Ghouls’ Gold, it was explained that Armon lost his real arm fighting in the Pharaoh’s army. The pharaoh then gave him his golden arm.
