The Transformer Superalloy C-80 Wheelie Survivalist Pictorial Review

The first thing you are probably asking yourself is "What the heck is The Transformer Superalloy C-80 Wheelie Survivalist?", and that would be a valid question. There's quite a bit of misinformation surrounding this figure, because two different third-party groups are producing versions of Jazai Toys' Wheelie and Powerglide. There's the version that I mentioned earlier and there will a version by X-Transbots known as TB02 Survivalist/Detectibot. The Superalloy version has been upsized to roughly Deluxe size and is composed of about 75% diecast, hence the name. From what I understand the X-Transbots version retains the original Jazai Toys scale and is made entirely of plastic. Hopefully that clears up some of the confusion.

On to the review. Keep in mind I don't have the set-up, equipment, or skills that Seibertron has.

He comes in a small cardboard box about the same quality as most third-party companies use and encased in a plastic tray. Also included are his instruction sheet/mini-poster featuring the art from the back of the box, two cards one of which is translucent, and a large sticker sheet with a bunch of additional faction symbols. Sadly no slingshot accessories, but according to the box it will included with their next release Powerglide.

Construction, like I said before about 3/4 diecast, plastic naturally, and rubber tires.

Articulation, ball-jointed head, shoulders, elbows, wrist, hips, and feet. Hinged knees and there's also a little added articulation in the hips due to the transformation. His shoulder articulation isn't the greatest, but it's acceptable.

Overall I'm pleased with my purchase. Initially I was little disappointed with his rather large size, but considering all the upscaling the Minibots have received in the Classics line I've come to accept his growth spurt. I paid $53.00 which included EMS shipping. The only place I know to purchase this figure is a seller on iOffer. It's the same seller who previously offered the KO Headmaster 10 pack.
