Mystery figure

Hello, I'm a huge fan of the site for a long time now, and I finally decided to start posting in the forums. Anyway this figure has been in my collection for a long time now, and I have no idea what is actually is. I know its not a Transformer or a Go-bot, and the only thing that tells me anything about is a MADE IN JAPAN on its lower legs and a sticker which reads Command Danger. These are the Images of the figure, ImageImage

Please tell what the heck I have..... Thanks in advance.

I've no idea what it is, but it does look kinda generic, but also kinda cool.

Does it have a pull-back motorized gimmick going on? I ask because that third wheel with the gear down between the feet make it look like it does. Maybe that's a clue to what it is, though like you, I couldn't find any info.

Yep, looks like it's the Command Van figure, though the colors are inverted (red/yellow parts reversed).

Wow, so thats what it is. Seriously, thank you for clearing up the mystery this figure has been confusing me ever since i got it. So the real one is red with a yellow missile bay, does that mean the one i got is a knock off, or a colour varient?

Tough to say; info on these toys is rather thin, but the article I linked to says:

The figures were also common grist to the bootlegger's mill due to their simple, all-plastic construction. The figures had names, were numbered and even came on blister cards - sadly, the artwork routinely showed the toys mis-transformed...


But then again there's this post that says they're variations.
