Toy Review: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Perceptor LG56



Aloha folks. Thanks to a demanding work schedule....... yeah, excuses, excuses. I bet you are ready for some pics and not so much in whether I care for this figure or not. Anyhow, let's get started!

Boxing and contents:

 


 


 


Here is the link to the explanation to the comic:

Nice box art from Takara like usual. The comic is a throwback to the episode "Face of Nijika." Nijika's body is so similar to that of Windblade. Ramhorms conversion to his new mode is explained as well as Perceptor's reason of becoming a headmaster.


Microscope mode (Alt mode)

 


 



Neat. We finally get his updated microscope mode. You can look through the lens though it's fairly blurry. You can use his magnifier to pretend as you can zooming or zooming out while examining your headmaster or whatever you are examining. You can examine other headmasters of course I was a little pressed for time so I didn't do it this time around but you get the drill. This is neat to have besides having your typical plane, car, or train etc....

More Hot Rod madness! Well, it ends here for now. This is the final Hot Rod review until I can get a Power of the Primes Rodimus Prime figure. Today in is Legends Hot Rod. I don't know what drove me to get this figure since I have so much Hot Rod/Rodimus figures but here is Legends Roddy nonetheless! Above pics is the usual box art and comic book that comes with it. I don't know much about the comic though it also takes place after Hot Rod left Cybertron in the Headmaster series. 
Here is the link to the official synopsis.


Blunder warning: I transformed Firebolt's gun mode wrong as well Hot Rod's chest piece in robot mode for the entire review. Don't say you weren't warned.

Toy Review: Fansproject TFX-04 Protector and Sidearm aka Rodimus Prime.

More Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime madness! Today we have the classic TFX-04 protector. Most of these shots were done back in 2011 I believe. The shots with Toyhax backdrop were done recently. Without haste, let's get started!

Boxing and contents.

 


 


 


 

So for those who are new to this, the is Fansprojects upgrade of Classics Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime also known as autobot protector. Classics Hot Rod was often blasted for being too small so Fansproject stepped in handled consumer complaints. Because this is also third party, his targetmaster Firebolt is renamed Sidearm due to trademark reasons of course.

Toy Review: Transformers Classics Retrospective look! Transformers Reveal the Shield Battle in Space: Rodimus vs Cyclonus 2 pack (2011)

It's no surprise which "legend" I'm reviewing next but I haven't got to there yet and quite frankly, it will be some time since I have a few Hot Rod or Rodimus figures I have to plow through. For now I will quick-review something shot from the past. Let's get started

The contents were packaged neatly for this two-pack release, but what made this part stand out imo was the G1 reimagining a few segments of Transformers the movie (1986) in the Rodimus vs Cyclonus comic that was bundled in here.  The comic was made to sell more RTS/Generations figures such as Grapple, Lugnut, Tracks, Rumble and Frenzy (who were eventually canceled in the U.S. release though thank God for Takara releasing them in the United line), and a few others, the comic was a good read. Look it up online, you find more of your answers there.

Transformers United Jazz UN-12 Review! United Jazz vs Reveal the Shield Jazz comparison

Jazz is arguably one of the most popular autobots in the TF franchise. So what does Michael Bay do? Yep, he kills his character off in the first film. Another Jazz figure you bought? I dunno why but when I saw the United version of Jazz, I had to get him. I was amazed by how the paint quality was much better than the Reveal the Shield version. I paid almost twice the price to get him. The funny thing is that I held this figure for nearly 4 years before finally deciding to let him out of his cage. Was he worth it? Like usual, we go through boxing >>> Alt mode >>> Robot mode >>> then conclusion.
