Toy Review: Transformers Power of the Primes Beachcomber.

Welcome to the very first March 2018 Transformer review! Today is none other than Beachcomber.
Well, let's get started!




Standard scout class and box-art for a Hasbro release. I didn't take his trading card out of the package but you can still see through it. Megatronus is supposed to be BeachComber's partner in alt mode but I don't have him. And quite frankly, I probably won't be getting him.

Robot mode





Wow. I'm amazed. Looks great, feels great, and plays great. Everything is great so far. Looks like a good representation of G1 Beachcomber so far. Joints are tight and BC can pose very decently.

Toy Review: Transformers Takara Tomy Legends LG40 Astrotrain triple changer!

Hello, hello, and hello! I've been busy with work and resting as much as I can, but I also wanted to take this opportunity to open up some of the figures my sister bought for me. In today is Legends Astrotrain, the triple-changer! Without delay, let's get started!

Boxing and contents





Legends Astrotrain LG40 comic sypnosis

Well, nice lookin artwork plus a funny comic till you reach the end part. I was chuckling for a bit to find poor Astrotrain maintaining a failing cargo transport company until he had a sinister plan towards the end. Anyhow, click on the link above to read the translation.

Warning: I made another blunder. I forgot that Astrotrain's robot mode had shoulder tabs so most of the shoot was missing the tabs.

Shuttle mode plus head master







Astrotrain's headmaster is a smaller version of himself basically. This is the default mode you get out of the box before you can transform him to his two other modes. The shuttle mode was ok. It was nice they painted the cockpit windows but to me this mode felt more like a space ship. There are some peg holes for you to just randomly place weapons. I have some example in the above pics. You can use mini-astrotrain to pretend as he is strafing his opponent. Not bad of a mode.

Toy Review! Transformers Classics: Universe Smokescreen

At long last, I finally decide to let Smokescreen out of his cage...after 8 years to be exact! Without further delay, let's get started!


Taken at 2010. Lol!
Creased at upper right.


Well, I was cleaning my room and found that the box was creased. I decided why not let him out already? Comes with an instruction manual. Was pretty cool for its time.

Alt mode guest starring Universe Prowl and Henkei Streak (Silverstreak or Bluestreak)




How I went about on getting Universe Smokescreen was that I prefered his dark blue colors over the light blue the Henkei version had. Plus Universe Smokescreen was only $10 at the time. However, the Henkei version is more consistent on his paint scheme and more G1 anime accurate. The Universe one is just colors everywhere it feels. It's the same mold as Universe Prowl and Henkei Streak so hope you enjoy the comparisons. For an odd reason, I had trouble putting their weapons underneath their car bellys. I just couldn't seem to put them on. Though Hasbro is famous for not painting their rims, I liked how Hasbro just out of the blue decided to paint SS's wheels bronze. Nice!

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.
