IRON HIDE | Transformer | TAIKONGZHANS | Mega Size | Chinese Knock-Off

We have here today an Unboxing Review of a Mega Size Chinese Knock Off version of IRON HIDE (Transformer). The product is branded TAIKONGZHANS which I do not know if that was an attempt to translate the term TRANSFORMER into something Chinese-like. Anyway, this Mega Size IRON HIDE is the third one that they have released. It stands around 15 inches high and is wider and bulkier than the Optimus Prime version. It can also transform into vehicle mode but we won’t be covering that in this review. For more info about the OPTIMUS PRIME version kindly click on this link. Now let us move on to the review

The manual can be found on the area where the left foot was. You need to slice open the plastic container to get it.
