We’ve featured Kenji Ishida’s progress regarding his transforming robot over the years. The first three models we saw were already coveted toys, but Kenji made it clear early on that his ultimate goal was to create a life-sized car that transforms into a humanoid robot. Kenji, Wataru Yoshizaki and Takara Tomy launched Project J-deite to see that dream through. To launch the project, they showcased the toy’s biggest version yet.

The J-deite Quarter is 1.3m tall (4.3ft) and weighs 35kg (77lb.). It has a 3kW battery that lasts up to an hour per charge. In robot mode, the J-deite Quarter can walk up to 1kph (0.62mph), grip objects and pose like a bad ass. In vehicle mode, it turns into a two-seater that can goes up to 10kph (6.2mph).

    Yeah the Transformation is way to slow. Megatron would so kill him before he ever rolled out.
