Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Scourge LG-26 review!

Hiya folks, welcome to another edition of TF reviews by yours truly. Today we have Scourge the tracker and his henchman: Generations and United Scourge. Oh, and how can we forget his leader, Galvatron. Without delay, let's get started!

Box and contents:

 


 


 


I forgot to take a picture of the comic scans. This is your artwork and box art. Standard Takara Tomy Legends release.

Anyhow, anybody interested in the comic storyline can click here:

Alt mode:

 


 


 


 


 This release of Scourge is a good homage to the G1 series. The United/Generation releases showcased Scourge as a B-52 bomber while this release is an updated G1 look for him. You can stick his headmaster head to give him the gimmick of his head sticking out while flying, something he did a lot in the animated series. Easy to transform from robot mode to this mode as well. A very neat representation of his Alt mode from his G1 days.

Transformers: Titans Return Galvatron and Nucleon review.

Aloha folks, it has been a while since I popped an update. Today's review is the insane, feared 2nd leader of the Decepticons: Galvatron. Galvatron is apparently a Headmaster now and his partner in crime is Nucleon who is none other than a mini-Megatron in disguise. Without further delay, let's get started!

Boxing and contents:

 


 


 

For anybody that is wondering, you can see Astrotrain, Blaster, and Fort Max on the inner boxing. I didn't bother taking out the card of the packaging but you get your artwork and stats.

Galvatron Robot mode:

 


 


 


 


 





Aesthetically, the figure looks amazing. However, what leaves to be desired is a better helmet. Heck, that is not a helmet at all, but a face mask. Sometimes his eyes are obscured due to this awkward fit of a mask. Then the next concern is his shoulder tabs due to the fact it is in the way for most of his poses. You need to flip it up just to pull up his arm cannon. The swivel that allows Galvatron to turn his head is very limited disallowing you the pleasure to make some decent poses with his head. The black tab located on his back also kept popping off. Was very annoyed at this point.

Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Rewind and Nightbeat review LG-28

Aloha fans, we are back with another TF review, unfortunately I left the next insecticon at my brother's house during my staycation there. So now I am left to do a quick substitute until I reacquire the Fansproject figure. Today's feature is none other than Rewind, one the autobot cassettes created to combat Soundwave's Decepticon cassettes. Without haste, let's get started!

Boxing and contents.

 


 


 


 

Boxing is your standard Takara packaging with attributes and a comic book. I was confused by what was going on. But I found the synopsis page online nonetheless so here is the link:

Rewind

 


 


 

Rewind comes equip with a thin rifle which can be pegged to his right forearm or plugged on both hands. I love how he has his classic cassette look on his back but updated with icons such as the Wi-Fi bar, battery icon (he is down one bar), and familiar icons such as the Facebook icon that is shaped with letter T instead. His G1 inspired eyes looks alright. For once, I kinda do prefer the IDW Hasbro visor look. Anyhow, Rewind looks great here.

Fansproject CA-03 Casuality ThunderShred (Not Shrapnel) Review Transformers

Back to the Transformer world we go before I embark on my next adventure. Today we go a little back in time and take a look at Fansproject's version of the insecticons. First up is Thundershred who is a homage to Shrapnel of TF fame. Just a little heads up that some of the pics came out soft looking. I should try to do better again next time. Anyhow, let's get started.

Boxing and contents

 


 


 


I bought the figure used a year or two ago. The figure comes as you see but I realized as I opened the box that ThunderShred's Shuriken weapon is missing. I guess the seller forgot to pack it or lost it. It's also my fault that I forgot to inspect the contents when I received the package. When I got the package I proceeded to store him away for a later future review. I guess this teaches me to carefully examine the contents in the future. Especially if the figure is used. 






Robot mode

 


 


 


 


The first of the three (n)insecticon looks great. He doesn't have a mouth like Shrapnel but his pincers make a good Wolverine/Shredder like weapons. Compared to other figures, he is a little small. He is somewhere between the height of a legends class figure and a deluxe figure. Let's not talk about how the CW/UW figures tower over him. Though I give him credit for attempting to take of Bruticus. Had I got the Shuriken with his figure, I could had done more poses with him plus enable him to wear the weapon as a backpack.

Alt mode

 


 


 










This is probably as G1 as you are going to get. Fansproject did a good job in making the insect mode very similar to Shrapnel's bug mode. You can toggle the legs to make him stand or sit in various degrees. My only problem was getting to this mode was a little tough. His torso is easily transformable while the leg area I had to use the instruction manual to figure that part out. I also don't like how his hands stick out of his back area in this mode. It looks a little eerie that a pair of hands will grab you if you end up on his rear. Just for kicks, I love he tightens his grip on legends figures. 

Conclusion: The first of three insecticons reviewed. He is worth getting if you haven't got the updated Hasbro/Takara Legends class figures whom all are too small for my tastes. Had I received his Shuriken, he would had been totally amazing. Oh well, lesson learned. At least the next two Ninsecticons I bought are new so I should have everything in the box.... I hope. 

Blog over!
