- Weapon: Battle Blades
I picked these guys up yesterday at TRU. Enjoy most of them quite a bit. Here's some quick thoughts:
- Lazerback - get this! Much more than an RiD Bruticus homage, really feels like a new thing. Nice aesthetic and hopefully all the Predacons will be the same quality.
- Bumblebee and Wheeljack - lumping these together because my thoughts on them are similar. If you already don't like either mold, these may change your mind, but probably not. Bee is a little scary, tbh, which is a cool change.
- Soundwave - bleh. Ravage is not worth the admission price. Universe 1.0 Soundwave color scheme on this mold is just kinda ugly. And weapons with strings? Thanks, but no thanks. He's the stinker in the wave.
Something else cool I noticed is that the character bio is no longer on the card, but in the instructions as one part of a 4 part "story" off to the side. The instructions themselves are not full color, but do have a differently colored background on each one, for instance, the background of Soundwave's instructions is purple, with the black/white pictures tiled over said background.
