Masudaya's Sonic Robot aka Train Robot,is a fascinating piece of design..

It characteristically makes a train noise, hence it's nickname.

It is part of the infamous Gang of Five skirted robots and it boasts a mystery bump-n'-go action with swinging arms and flashing eyes,ears.

It's chest design features a metallic panel and a smart/stylish switch.

The combination of colours is simply awesome - Sonic Robot is lovable!
