Tamiya Mechanical Creatures are these amazing, hi-tech toy robots you construct yourself! They come in a large number of parts within a kit, and it's pretty time consuming to put together. But it's all worth it in the end when you get to see your toy robot move. They're intricately designed, and when they're crafted correctly, they produce fantastic results. It's satisfying to watch these amusing robots up and at 'em!
Tamiya Corporation is a Japanese manufacturer of mechanical creatures (like the robocraft giraffe above) and other awesome robotic kits, as well as radio controlled cars and other kits for various toy models. It was founded in 1946 by Yoshio Tamiya. Through the power of the motors each mechanical creature uses, you can enjoy their unique movements.
They involve plastic parts you combine together to complete a mechanical creature.
Depending on the model, your robot can perform various actions, like walking and jumping.
Here's a link to a video of someone who tried to make a racing horse: www.youtube.com/embed/q0E-8yMeI8Y (Unfortunately it's in Japanese, but to summarize, the person failed to build it correctly in the beginning, which resulted in awkward movements of the mechanical toy. However, after trying to fix it into the correct model, it successfully moved, and at a fast pace too).
So, Tamiya Mechanical Creatures are kind of challenging to build, but once built, it can be so much fun to use. You can show it off to your friends, and wow others with your skills. Each mechanical creature is designed in a way which you can visibly see how it works even upon completion, so it's very educational. Having fun while learning is key.
These robocrafts are just right for this era of hi-tech inventions and robotics. Every creature has its own movement, form, and speed, to provide you everlasting fun. Feel like you're up to the challenge? Scroll through the various robocraft kits we have here for you at J-Subculture today!
