Racing around the universe can get lonely, but the Student Scissors has found a solution – A cool bike that transforms into a robot companion! Viral Racer Unit-01 features a great looking pilot figure that makes use of the head from the Collectible Minifigure Series 19 Galactic Bounty Hunter atop a studly (although almost studless) brick-built body. The teal accents are carried over into the fenders on the motorcycle – a vehicle that has, shall we say, more to it than meets the eye.
Yes, the bike transforms into this cool reptilian looking mode. I really like how the dual radar dishes that make up the tires split, and how the dinosaur tail elements go from fenders to tentacles. Best of all, the overall shape of this mode doesn’t really suggest the motorbike version; rare feat in transforming models.
But best of all, the two figures fit perfectly together, ready to take on the world. Or worlds.
