The Philosophic Toad has uploaded these fabulous videos of the Joe 90 U59 and A14 Tanks
With the Bloggiversary coming to en end tonight I've saved this little 'thanks for watching' bargain till now. I recenty came across a local shop that stocks this U59 lookalike! It's called the Super Transformer Tank, about 8 inches long, made in China, of hard plastic and is battery-operated (not supplied). It's not a Rolls-Royce high quality toy and the shop low price of £3.99 reflects this. However, I have bought two and am well impressed. It looks a lot like the Joe 90 tank despite having 8 wheels. The mystery action is excellent and the 'transforming' action is quite fantastic - lights flash, sirens wail, the front end comes up to reveal a robot and the rear end opens to reveal a small silver helicopter! It even comes in either beige or green! For fun I have drawn-up a custom PROJECT SWORD SUPER TANK sleeve (bottom 2 pictures), which can be printed off and made-up as a collar that wraps around the box body lengthways. You could even add SWORD decals to the sides of your tank for that authentic look! A pair of scissors and a stick of Pritt and Bobs your uncle! Instructions provided on request. If you would like me to get you one of these tanks at £3.99 plus postage anywhere at cost let me know here. If you would also like the little dome and small silver astronaut (made of Das Pronto) putting on your tank top like I have in the beige one pictured then please add 50p. I can't guarantee availability of these tanks but there were quite a few last week. FAB and thanks for watching. PS. Be aware that the UK Postal Workers are currently striking so the post maybe a tad unpredictable!
