    Actually it is a Transformer, if you look for it, its a new thing, not very common.
    It builds like and Scale model, but as you build it you are building the transformer mechanism. open the link provided you will see it standing .

    Actually, it ISN'T a Transformer. Transformer with capital T implies the series that started in 1984, and continues to, as recently as I know, the Micheal Bay movies.

    This picture is of a VF-25 Messiah from Macross Frontier, part of the Macross Series that started with Super Dimension Fortress: Macross in 1982.

    Keeping in mind that Macross is 2 years OLDER than Transformers, look up Jetfire (the original G1 version) and compare it's(his?) plane mode to a VF-1.

    There's no point quarrelling about whether it is a transformer or not. It is still a cool toy.

    After a quick Google, this appears to be a Transformer.

    actually it ISN'T a transformer. The variable fighter is from Macross which predates transformers by 2 whole years. Plus it has a human pilot.
