Toys

An original third party Transformer mold by FansProject. Turns from a car to robot. Comes with a driver and two guns. The car's driver becomes the head of the robot.
The head of Code has a similar, but different mechanism for attaching to his body as the Generation 1 Chromedome has. The result is that while Codes' head can fit on a Generation 1 Headmaster body (without activating the tech spec meter), a Generation 1 head cannot fit on Code.

A set of labels intended to make Code look mode like Chromedome. Includes Autobot faction symbols.[14]
