  1. Mindwipe - Very cool stealth jet mode. The robot mode is creepy, yet cool.

     

    Brawn - Tough looking truck mode. The robot mode is equally tough looking, despite all the kibble. I do kind of wish the pistols could store in robot mode, though.

     

    Lockdown - Very menacing vehicle mode. The robot mode is very tall, lanky, and creepy - perfect fit for Lockdown! Personally, I don't see what people are complaining about with the shoulders, as mine aren't loose and don't pop off very often at all. I would have liked the hook and hand to have been a much stiffer plastic, though.

  2. Voyager Long Haul - He's bulky. Very bulky. In vehicle mode, anyway. Robot mode does at least attempt to give him some bulk with the front panels wrapping around his legs. I really like the pistons in his elbows, as I can imagine a bot his size needing them to drive his arms!

     

    Voyager Bludgeon - He's got a decent mix of both Universe/Classics and Movie aesthetics. I think the face may resemble a Cybertronian's 'skull', as it kind of looks like what was left of The Fallen's head after Prime ripped his face off. A little less red in his eyes would have helped, too, since there appears to be detail of actual eyes in there. The only real gripe would be that most of his weaponry is made of a soft plastic that easily warps. Though I can sort of understand the katana, since he holds that sucker TIGHT! Overall, a nice addition to a movie or Classics collection!

     

    Legends Devastator - A cheaper, more accurate version of Devastator from ROTF. (not to mention pocket size!) It's all kinds of awesome. 'Nuff said.

  3. '07 Movie Longarm - He's the tow truck from the first movie toy line, based off of the tow truck Mikaela used to tow Bumblebee around in the battle of Mission City and the drone type of the same name from Transformers: The Game. The vehicle mode is quite solid, although I don't care for how the lightbar is just floating there behind the cab. He can tow most Deluxe carformers if there's enough room under their bumper for the hook to hang onto, which is a nice feature. Amusingly, the missile launcher can be triggered in this mode. The robot mode has one heck of a BFG! It's screwed into his right hand, which is odd. Overall, I would have liked to have gotten the Hoist repaint, this was much cheaper and didn't come with a Mixmaster I had no interest in.

  4. 'Universe Getaway' (Wal-Mart exclusive Breakaway) - A decent repaint of Cybertron Hot Shot. The vehicle mode is nice, the key gimmick isn't worth mentioning but at least is out of the way. The robot mode is neat. Worth it if you don't have a version of this mold already, but is nothing special otherwise.

     

    TRU exclusive Universe Countdown - A repaint of Cybertron Defense Red Alert. The vehicle mode is very bulky, and armed with a huge ICBM that is removable. The robot mode is bulky and squat for an Ultra class figure. The key opens the rocket to allow it to fire a missile, and/or unlocks an attachment arm. You can attach a claw or a hammer to the end. Worthwhile if you can find.

     

    Henkei! Ramjet - A very nice update to the G1 Conehead. The tails and cockpit are chromed, and look nice! As a side effect of the different transformation from the original mold, his face is clearly visible from below in vehicle mode.

     

    Henkei! Smokescreen - MUCH better than the Universe version of Smokescreen, IMO.

     

    Henkei! Hot Shot with Jolt - Jolt is almost as much of a waste of plastic as Tidal Wave's Mini-Con, Ramjet. Hot Shot really benefited from the Universe/Classics update! The guns can either be held in his hands or plugged into his forearms.

  5. ROTF/Universe Bruticus Maximus (or just Bruticus)

     

    Bruticus here is a repaint of the Energon Bruticus Maximus. Anyway, this time around the set is done in much more subdued colors, which is nice. Even though there's only three individual molds in the set, (Onslaught, Brawl/Blast Off, Vortex/Swindle) Hasbro at least helped make each one feel unique through the paint layouts and different 'signatures'. (for example, Swindle's '$') Each of them are very nice on their own, and not too difficult to transform. Now, whereas Superion is a bit weak and unstable when combined, Bruticus is very sturdy and secure. The energon weapons work nicely enough as either 'hands' or 'feet'. 8/10

  6. I feel it's not my place to say. :thumb

     

    I will say though, if TF2 decides to reveal this information, again; cut him some slack. The last time he revealed it, because somebody had a problem with it, he received more flack than was deserved. (which is to say, he deserved none.)

    I know a bit about him, but I doubt this place is friendly enough to reveal it.
