Transformers Combiner Wars Powerglide review (2015) Guest star: Unite Warriors Superion

It was inevitable that Powerglide would join the fray. Billed as a part of the combiner war legacy, does Powerglide fare great? First off, it took me a while to get him because I was debating whether to spend an extra few bucks just to get the Japanese version. I decided to stick with the western release because I hated the autobot sticker on the Japanese one. Seriously, what were they thinking? Now on with the pics like usual. Sorry for the loads of dust on the black floors.

 

This is probably the last time I am buying an TF figure from Amazon. First off, I bought Tailgate and the package came all creased up. Now, it you look carefully on the first pic, the box is slightly creased and it seemed as it was opened to begin with. It was taped in between the Powerglide portrait and the actual figure itself. And Amazon had the balls to decrease the price after I bought it for $10.88; they decreased the price back to retail $9.99 after I bought it. I love Amazon, but I seem to feel so disappointed every time I buy TF figures from them. Never again unless if have to.

Takara Tomy Unite Warriors Superion UW-01 review 2 of 2

Surprise Megatron, meet Superion! I have to say that forming Superion was easy. He wasn't that difficult to transform at all. The funny thing is that Silverbolt's head goes in the crotch area or you can say Superion's head comes from the crotch area of Silverbolt. Until I get Menasor or other combiners, you see Superion in his fullest glory.

Takara Tomy Unite Warriors Superion UW-01 review 1 of 2!

So with all the combiner wars hype, I was intrigued in getting a few of these figures--namely the real combiners such as Menasor, Superion, and Defensor etc. When I heard Takara was releasing their version combiners named "Unite Warriors", I figured why not? The bad news was that it was almost a half a year wait when it was announced back in January. The bonus: Slingshot was to appear as a completed G1 team replacing IDW Alpha Bravo. I said sweet! Then around April, Hasbro released their own version of Slingshot re-named Quickslinger to the western fans. So what was the point of waiting or getting the Takara exclusive at the time? By then I had already pre-ordered Superion which was announced as a gift set. So I told myself why not wait  again since it is more G1 colored and style..... and because I couldn't get refunds on Amiami.com.

July 7 came and the USPS mailman dropped this off!

  

However, due to work, I was un-able to open the first official Autobot combiner in G1 cartoon history until July 12. The results: Sloppy...... what???? My camera work that is.. hee hee. Got you there. My camera work was blurry in some pics but I was so lazy to fix it. My apologies folks, but due to time constraints and heavy workload, I can only do so much for now.  If time allots it, I will try to fix some of these pics in the future.

 








 
Energon BBQ!


 So this is what I like: It all comes in one instead of buying them separate though Hasbro may have a gift set of their own in the future. It comes with a nice trading pic of the Aerialbots having Energon BBQ on Metroplex. Weird I know. Here's the Aerialbots for your viewing pleasure!
