Doraemon Transformer Turns into a (Non-Functioning) Time Machine


Everyone’s favorite robot cat from the future is now more than meets the eye!

The toy comes with multiple cool bonuses. First off, the Complete Strategy Book traces the history of both Doraemon and his time machine. The booklet includes art from the manga, as well as commentary from celebrities who also happen to be Doraemon fans.
