Out Of The Box: Beginning
Truck Mode: 2:26
Robot Mode: 4:07
Final Thoughts: 14:16
Finished the written/pictorial review on my site as well. Here's a preview:
The truck mode pretty much mirrors the upgrade kit for S.G. Ultra Magnus in terms of basic aesthetic. The new front bumpers and hood from the modified chest plate and shoulders truly do wonders for this alt. mode. It does have character-specific detailing with “Till all are Gone!” written on each side of the oil tanker, along with the sword holster and hilt being placed on the back of the tanker like the original Battle Tanker mold.
The first thing that stands out about the robot mode is the new headsculpt. It mirrors that of the original Battle Tanker mold, but has a nice crack from the bottom of the eye through the mouth plate to give it a much more “Shattered Glass” styling to it. A perfect color match of gray, gold, on top of the “little things” like chrome coloring on his missile launchers really make this kit feel like it was “meant” for this deco of the Reveal The Shield Optimus mold.
Weapons-wise, this set is no joke! The most prominent is his big sword, which is the same blade shape as the original Battle Tanker but a clear orange, and also features a new hilt. Gone is the light-up gimmick...
