1. A transformation mechanism assembly, adapted to a transformable toy car, the transformable toy car comprising a head, a main body, a left front door, a right front door, a rear left door, a rear right door, and a left tail and a right tail separable from each other, two sides of the main body being respectively disposed with the transformation mechanism assembly corresponding to the left front door, the rear left door, the right front door, and the rear right door, the main body being adapted to pivotally rotate in relative to the head, and the transformation mechanism assembly comprising:
a first driving unit, pivotally connected to the main body, and the first driving unit comprising a driving roller;
a driving rod, comprising a first end and a second end opposite to each other, and the driving rod being pivotally connected to the first driving unit via the first end;
a linkage mechanism, pivotally connected to the main body, and the linkage mechanism comprising:
a first linkage, comprising a first pivoting end, a second pivoting end, and a first connecting end, the first pivoting end being pivotally connected to the main body, the second pivoting end being pivotally connected to the second end of the driving rod, and the left front door and the right front door being respectively connected to the first linkage via the first connecting end;
a second linkage, comprising a third pivoting end and a fourth pivoting end, and the second linkage being pivotally connected to the main body via the third pivoting end; and
a third linkage, pivotally connected to the second linkage, and the left front door and the right front door being respectively pivotally connected to the second linkage via the third linkage; and
a support rod, pivotally connected to the fourth pivoting end of the second linkage, the left tail and the right tail being respectively pivotally connected to the support rod, the first driving unit being adapted to push the driving rod towards directions of the left tail and the right tail, the driving rod driving the first linkage to pivotally rotate in relative to the main body, the left front door and the right front door being respectively pushed by the first linkage to move towards directions away from the main body, and respectively pivotally rotating in relative to the main body by means of the second linkage and the third linkage, and the support rod, the left tail, and the right tail being respectively pushed by the second linkage to move towards directions away from the main body.
