Still don't like 'em.

As I said in the other "three transformation Revoltech" review, I think that this is an experiment that didn't work. It has all the disadvantages of Revoltech with few of the advantages, and it introduces a whole new set of weirdness all its own (there's a reason that all those pins stick out all over the place!)


One review nit: The "nub" hands are only there to look like folded-in fists during Fighter mode.


Oh, so THAT'S how the flight stand is supposed to work! I feel so dumb now that I couldn't figure that out!

...aaaaand it still won't work for the Gerwalk. Which, quick warning: If you're planning to put the Gerwalk in a "flying" position, don't cram the stand into the hole on the back of the nose (used to attach the Battroid.) Or if you do, make sure you provide some support elsewhere. The plastic used to make that nose bit is kind of soft, and will creep over time, and your Gerwalk will wind up looking a bit...uh...unexcited.

More than anything I'm just shocked that the toy exists. I wonder if this means we'll see more transforming Revoltech toys?

Maybe a resculpt of Dangaioh that's fully combinable? (Signs point to "no.")

Nice Review...

I would have flipped if Transformers had been this cool when I was a kid. I do find that a lot of the Revoltech stands need a counter balance. Unless you just hit that sweet spot.
