The altmode is kinda movie 1 Starscream all over again. Realistic, but bland and uniform in being so.

Dunno if anyone else has had this brainwave, but it occurred to me today that these crossover toys are a licensing double-whammy: There's the movie license, and the vehicle mode license!

Not necessarily for Gigawatt. His vehicle mode is missing the DMC logo on its front grille, which it would need to have if the toy were licensed by the DeLorean Motor Company.

That probably explains why he's only $10 extra instead of $20 extra.

In other words, camouflaged against the bright sky. Plainly visible markings and bright colors are used more in air shows I believe, like with the Blue Angels.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head)
- TR Ravage and Rumble (the red one)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands
- a way to convert PAL-60Hz to HDMI, and record it (thank you Kaico and E.O.N.)

I don't mind the colorscheme ... or lack thereof. It's just the plastic choice. And the shoulders being too low. And the weathering paint only being on top and not all over.

Greetings Seibertronians! Well hot on the heels of the Back to the Future x Transformers crossover figure Gigawatt, came the Top Gun x Transformers crossover figure, Maverick! There has been a lot of discussion over the third collaboration figure, due to its deco and the plastic quality seen in a few of the pictures. Well thanks to some intrepid YouTube toy reviewers, we can now see the toy in motion and get their in hand opinions of the toy.

First up, we head to the YouTube account of The Mr Stan Show, who has done this review of the figure:



Next, and thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Tuned Agent, for sending this in to us,we come to PrimeVsPrime, a regular for providing timely reviews.



Has any of these reviews convinced you to get the figure? Or are you taking the next exit from the highway to the danger zone? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Motto: ""It's all part of the plan...more or less.""
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
I canceled my pre-order about a month ago...

Nostalgia almost sucked me in. It's a shame when the box is one of the coolest things about it. I just couldn't justify spending $50 on a drab colored kinda-voyager. While some of the details are pretty cool, it just doesn't say "Transformers" to me. Gigawatt and Ectotron pulled off nostalgia and looking like they belong on the TF Universe... they just missed something on this one.

I am still waiting for my Enterprise Titan crossover Hasbro!! Or at least a Commander class...

Enterprise X TF.... I can only imagine Hasbro will come up with a "Cosmos with chicken legs" design and call it a day since they dared to turn an awesome F-14 into this Maverick turd...

The design that people mention is the one that featured in the star trek x Transformers crossover comic last year but I don't think that will ever get made due to the design needing to keep to the laws of physics. The comic design mass-shifts a great deal to work so isn't practical.

The comic bot's design is just lazy & not forward-looking (toy design do-able) compared to Ectotron & Gigawatt. The latter 2 had the transformation logic in mind, and the toys can pulled off the looks exactly.

If you look at the Enterprise bot design... it made no sense (without mass shifting). The propulsion units are the back pack, which is fine. Part of the primary hull (where the bridge is located) is split into the torso. The whole secondary hull (lower part of the ship, where the hangar and sensor are attached at each end) is missing! But the arms & legs don't look anything like any part of the Enterprise.

So that's why I think Hasbro will have to design something different... the "Cosmos with chicken legs" instead. The propulsion units are the chicken legs. The secondary hull is collapsed and become the waist and backpack, the primary hull can be divided into upper torso, head and arms (this part can transform just like Cosmos except the legs).

What a piece of crap. It looks like they used all the paint app budget on the helmet and the motorcycle. And a volleyball? Really?
It just looks like a cheap knockoff. Hasbro should be ashamed.
