  1. I'll admit, I'm new to Minimates so some of the charm and intricacies of the figures might escape me. I have to admit though, these are really nice-looking figures, the paint is top-notch, far better than other Minimates figures I've seen. Articulation is surprisingly good for something so small, be careful if you possess sausage fingers like me; manipulating the limbs might be a touch difficult. One glaring negative is the price, at close to $30 for a pack of four you might have a hard time seeing the value. Overall I quite like these, if you're looking for something new and different, as different as a 20-year-old line can be, you might enjoy these little guys.
  2. I don't want to jinx anything, but Road Rage feels like some of the issues that I experienced with Tracks are fixed. Unfortunately, the mold still feels off with the plastic still feeling incredibly brittle. I can't recommend this figure 100% but if you want to roll the dice the choice is yours.
  3. I'd love to say that Sludge is a good figure, but that wouldn't be true. The paint detail is really nice, I dig that metallic blue, the backplate for the Energon armor gimmick won't lock into place making it hard to handle the figure while most of the limb joints are very loose. I have to say wait for a sale or pass on Sludge entirely.
  4. You might think I'm a glutton for punishment and you'd probably be right, but there was something about RED Starscream that drew me in. Yes, I still have issues with the overall quality of the plastic, but my issues with the hand and knee joints seem to be fixed, at least on this mold. Starscream looks good, and with the cape and crown on Starscream looks regal. If you see this figure on the pegs pick it up, we know that it can be worse.
  5. Best Warrior Class figure from the Cyberverse line, period.
  6. One of the great things about the Cyberverse line is how it pulls from all generations of Transformers. Ramjet really embodies all of the Conehead Seekers with its colors and design. For an Ultra Class figure, Ramjet comes fairly loaded with accessories, two null rays, and a staff-like weapon made from its thrusters. One negative to the figure is the Energon armor doesn't like to sit in place, but that could just be on my figure. Ramjet is one of the better Ultra Class figures and would be a great addition to your Cyberverse collection.
  7. Getting this set in hand tempered by excitement greatly. Grimlock is a fine figure and great use of a really great mold. With Mirage I think they made changes, really deep and thought out changes, that weren't needed that removed a traditional play feature from the toy that ultimately makes the figure feel lackluster. I can really only recommend this set for completionists or those who fear they may not be able to get it down the line.
  8. Hasbro continues its "Booster Pack" collection of releasing weapons, blast effects, and small accessories with repainted figures, in the Kingdom line. This time they're using a repaint and slight retool of the Fossilizer Ractonite called Tricranius to pad the release of some neon-colored blast effects. If you're into the Fossilizers from the Kingdom subline then this release might interest you, but I don't find the blast effects as enticing as a bag of weapons and accessories as we saw in the first booster release.
  9. Gnaw is tiny. When I first saw packaged images I thought its feet were part of its knee pads. Most of the tray is empty space, so much for being environmentally concerned. I also don't feel there's any engineering in it that justifies the deluxe price point. It is a cool figure, transformation is fun, and sorta reminds me of G1 Gnaw from back in the day. If you happen to have the versions of Gnaw from Titans Return and Cyberverse this version will fit right in an instant army. I do recommend the figure, but just be aware of what you're getting with the price.
  10. If I'm being honest this set feels a little flat to me. While I appreciate the work that went into retooling Sideswipe for a more G1 look, I feel the steps didn't go far enough. Skywarp just feels off but I'm impressed by the head sculpt. Hopefully down the line, we'll see a proper Generations style Magnaboss set. If you like what you see then pick up the set, but for most this might be an easy pass.
  11. The Deluxe Cheetor from Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures is a great figure, much better than the Kingdom Deluxe. Transformation is relatively simple, although the instructions could be a little more clear on where things tab and my copy needed a little more force than I felt comfortable with. The animation likeness is very good too making Cheetor a solid addition to the line, and your collection.
  12. It's great to see the Crash Combiner gimmick updated for the Cyberverse line. I always liked the "Buddy System" style of combining and thought it was executed well in RID. For the Dinobots Unite subline Hasbro has made the figures bigger and added accessories, which ups the play value a bit. Megatron and Slag/Slug aren't going to set the world on fire with their articulation but I really like their overall look. I really think Hasbro did a great job capturing the look of Megatron from the Cyberverse cartoon. The combined mode is big and a little beefy with Megatron housing most of the spring transformation gimmick. Obviously meant for younger hands, I feel the Dino Combiners offer something to an older fan as well.
  13. Here's a fun little throwback to the early days of Beast Wars, right down to the Kenner logo on the packaging. Rattrap is a simple one-step changer that was quite articulated for the day. Unfortunately, the ball joints haven't held up and can't support the weight of the figure well on my copy. Cheetor is a real stand-out from the early days and it's worth remembering that it was one of the most articulated figures of the day. All the joints are still tight and can hold a pose, it's a really fun figure. Both Rattrap and Cheetor are fun figures and if you've never experienced a Transformer from this era, they're worth the purchase.
  14. Rodimus Prime is a really great figure and the Masterpiece buster we all thought it would be. Yeah, that's all I really need to say about it.
  15. Hasbro along with IDW has decided to reboot the Shattered Glass concept with some Pulse exclusive figures and a new comic. The first of these figures is Blurr, a repaint of Studio Series 86 Blurr featuring a new head, which I believe is a bit of a send-up of the head used on the FunPub version of SG Blurr. I do like the darker more purple-blue with the metallic teal highlights in vehicle mode. Overall the figure is the same, if you liked SS 86 Blurr you'll like this figure, if you had issues with the SS 86 mold, well, those issues are still here.
