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

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.
