PB-11 Daitetsujin 17 Sub Machine

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)


This is the Popy-made vehicle from the live-action show, Daitetsujin 17. The box presents the vehicle in one of its forms (more on this later).

These are the contents of the box. Based on the size of the box, I suspect that all of these came wrapped in the soft foam, as opposed to styrofoam packaging.


The instruction sheets present details on how to transform the vehicle from a submarine-type vehicle into a helicopter.


This is toy in submarine form.

In order to transform it into a helicopter, you lift up the rear hatch and spread out the rotary blades. Pressing the button on the front of the vehicle makes the wide wings spring out.

The pilot does not lock into place (no tabs), he just sits loosely in the seat. Also, the blue transparent door opens.


Here's the D-17 Sub Machine with the rest of the Popy D-17 family (also including a D-17 larger figure put out more recently by Bandai).
