  • Good chance for me to snatch this up since I missed it the first time around.

    ...ohh, gods, I hope they reissue both versions of Aquarion again; that set is still expensive as hell on the aftermarket-!

    I agree, the SS Starscream mold is a suitably nice one.  The paint applications are spot-on, the articulation is great (including in his two-joint knees), and the molds are top-notch for a Bayformer despite being a scaled-up version of the original 2013 figure.  It seamlessly fits in right next to all the dedicated Studio Series figures.

    Only problems I have with it is getting the wings to telescope up/down on those waist pistons while in vehicle mode, and unpegging the back horizontal stabilizers from the rest of the jet's back end.  And, yeah, the undercariage kibble doesn't help much, considering the larger SS Leader-class Blackout managed to not show ANY kibble from the sides or top in helicopter mode.

    I wish the buzz saw had been included, but it's nice they took the time energy and effort to add a new mold of his hand-held missile launcher.  (Ironically, the 2013 Leader-class figure- which I reviewed for CDX, btw-also did the hand-held missile launcher, but it barely looked anything like it did in the movies!)

  • This is a good chance for someone like me to pre-order this since I missed the original version.

    It took nine years, but I finally got giant Pulgasari! It is a thrill! Just goes to show the Rolling Stones were wrong: You CAN always get what you want!

  • Reminds me of some of the generic transforming toys from the 80s, like Mattel's Flybot.

  • Ebay prices are about the same as Tokyo prices. Japanese Amazon would probably be the cheapest place.

    Great review, I have almost an entire season of these things, minus this one figure. It is actually 7 inches, not 11, though.

  • Car mode looks like a Chevelle to me.
    Where would you say is the best place to order this or the other characters?

    The main difference between Abrams and McFarlane is that McFarlane has a toy company specifically because he was a “celebrity” who had fans that would follow him to any venture. Abrams tries to use his involvement with toys to become famous,and that just isn’t going to happen,no matter how entertaining he is on that Netflix show.

    The main thing they have in common for me is,whenever someone mentions either guy,the first thing that pops in my mind is his unique version of Spider-Man.

  • The show is hillarious!

    Splinter: “Your name is Meat Sweats?!?”
    Meat Sweats: “Actually my name is Rupert.”
    Splinter: “I’d stick with Meat Sweats.”

    It's interesting to me to see how the pieces get reused for each of the three ground-pounder Dinobots; they're all the same basic pieces, just flipped upside-down or turned backwards.

    You can cram a surprising number of Prime Master / Headmaster figures into Sludge. In robot mode the dino neck forms a sort of "knapsack" that one or two guys can ride in. In dino mode, if you flip open the wings then a couple guys can sit in that space.

    I totally agree!! If sludge was any more than $15, I don’t think he would be worth it but for that price he’s pretty good! I really wish the dinobots all had both guns and swords for each though, but the prime armor probably means they couldn’t have more than one normal weapon each, but oh well! I’m just happy they made new dinobots at all!

    For $15, he's good enough. More weapons would be nice, but I'm glad he at least has his wings. Helps him stand out more from Slug/Slag.

    Man, this could almost double as an Evil Horde hangout. Looks great. Where is it available?

  • Slithe

    He was the leader of the mutants. I can't remember the exact arrangement they had with Mumm-Ra though but it's safe to assume he was not their leader, at last not until they arrived on Third Earth. It's been a while since I watched the show.

  • Triggerhappy

    Triggerhappy really is a great figure.  I was lucky enough to find him in a shop here, Home Bargains, for £8. :D  I really love his transformation, but what I really love about these rcent Transformers is that they are very faithful recreations of the G1 toy and cartoon chaarcters.

  • Back in August 1989 when I was four years old I got this toy on holiday in England from Woolworths.

    Although my version oif the toy had grey arms and legs like the picture on the box.  

    Very fun toy that I kept for many years and joined in on many epic Transformers battles.

    Thanks for posting a great review of this toy. 

    Although this toy always reminded me of was Thundercats, as that day in the shop I had the chance to get a Thundercats Driller figure but I decided to get the cool looking robot as I thought I would get Driller eventually another time.  Ironically Driller was the one Thundercats toy I never seen in any shop here in Northern Ireland.

  • Really nice Ko's Too bad about the insignia's. it looks like it would be hard to cover up. or remove.

    Although I'm no mod expert.

    But I could see this being a modder's dream.

    to make your own team etc.

    great review

  • Gorn

    It's not the gorn figure itself, it's the Mego reboot line in general. Many people cite poor face sculpts, and just a general out of touch attitude with the line.

  • The Beta actually has alternate hand weapons (drills and claws instead) and a different cockpit! but yeah. line has a lot of very very mild remolds.

    What don’t people like about this Gorn figure?

    I'd say this toy is not bad. Worth picking up for anyone who's a fan of the movies and/or missed the previous figure.
