This is the large transport vehicle Grandbirth from the Space Sheriff Sharivan show.  The spaceship transforms into a giant robot.  The side of the box shows the transformation sequence.

This is the toy laid out in its styrofoam case - the case includes a styrofoam cover.  The instructions are also presented.

The original form is a giant spaceship.  My toy unfortunately has some yellowing.  The toy has a decent heft with its diecast content and large size.  The feet have chrome expulsion tubes, and the feet rotate as part of the transformation.

To transform the ship into a robot, you first rotate the legs down.  Next you rotate the torso up and add the head (after moving the head supporting pin back).  The side panels of the torso shift in and the landing gear fold in.

Nex, the wings fold up.  You can see the fold-out arms on the undersides of the wings (similar in design to the Vavilos DX toy that became popular in the US under the Godaikin line), and turret guns along the hips.  The arms are multi-jointed so they can be positioned in any number of ways.  The completed robot is presented in the third photo below.

The toy has some nice details, like built-in guns in the front of the wings.  The head is a stand-alone ship with wheels on the bottom.

This toy is quite large, as can bee seen from this comparison with the Popy Rydoto from the Raideen series.
