Greetings Seibertronians! Looking forward to finding Earthrise Deluxes in your area? Well fellow Seibertron user and YouTube reviewer, Chuckdawg1999, has gotten his hands on Hoist, part of the first wave of Deluxes from the Earthrise line. Find his thoughts and the embedded review below!

chuckdawg1999 wrote:Whereas Cliffjumper is on the smaller end of the deluxe spectrum Hoist is a figure that's on the larger end, it's a big beefy robot. Unlike the 30th anniversary figure, Earthrise Hoist borrows more from the classic G1 design, for better or worse in the case of the arm flaps. Transformation is a bit fiddly but once everything comes together you end up with a nice and tight truck mode. While not the best of the Wave 1 deluxe figures, Hoist fills a niche that might just be what your collection is looking for.





Do you agree with this review? Is Hoist on your list of toys to get? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

thank you for the thoughts Kev, very well said.

I'm beginning to think Cliffjumper might pull a SS Jazz for me: little for the price point, a rip off to some, but an amazing figure to me, at least I'm hoping so

That is pretty much where I'm at right now on him. Hes a great figure and I don't feel cheated by the pricepoint; but, I am leery if they try to remake all the minibots in this way. The BFG does a lot to help make up for the small size, especially since the most recent legends figures didn't come with any weapons. But really my biggest hesitation on the minibots moving to deluxe class is that it is going to take deluxe slots away from other figures. How long are we going to have to wait for someone like Horribull or Fangry if Hasbro wants to give minibots like Huffer, Warpath and Gears an update first.

What is up with this guys reviews always being featured on the main page? Nothing against him, but we have had reviews of the figures long before he posts most of his videos. Like I said earlier, nothing against him, I am just curious.

I figure I would give some time to the new A.I.R. Lock connectors for Ironworks and Hoist with Siege OS and Astrotrain. While I really didn't like Soundbarrier at first sight based on how simple his transformation is, I now see how necessary he is going to be and believe there will be a run on him by those who want to build cities. I'll be getting at least 2, depending on what else gets revealed soon.

For Siege I triple dipped on all 3 regular weaponizers (and got one of each Powerdasher), I loved the gimmick so much. That was my original plan with the micromaster bases, hence the the 2 Ironworks figures. I have a third coming from Hasbro Pulse that I got with the 20% off black Friday coupon. I'm on the fence on whether I'll keep him or just return him for full price to Target on the receipt for these 2. For some reason they just aren't as much fun as the weaponizers were, not bad, but not as great to me.

For the 2 in the photo, the one connected to OS is in his normal configuration, except I removed the ramp that goes to the ground and moved it to side to be able to reach OS. This is where Soundbarrier will end up once he make and appearance at retail. The second one was my own tinkering around.

The A.I.R. Lock system is also a great way for Hoist to test his alt mode's towing capacity.

I know it's an unpopular opinion, but looking at this Hoist (and 90 percent of earthrise), man I want G1 to die.

Well, of course it's unpopular in threads like this. Generations is a continuation of Classics - being neo-G1 is its raison d'etre. :P

Besides, Hasbro already made a non-vintage-style Hoist in Generations:

You want a non-blocky Generations Hoist? Already exists, reasonably easy to find on eBay. Unlike, say, Universe Sideswipe prior to SIEGE.

Earthrise Hoist is made for fans of the cartoon who enjoy the vintage designs. Let us have our turn.

My thoughts are we just need a rotating set for leaders. Like one year Prime, the next could be Rodimus, the year after a Japanese character, Sentinel, or maybe a new character/non-G1 Optimus Prime. And for the cons it could be Megatron, then Galvatron, then Japanese, Beast Megatron, or a new character. Just to keep it a bit fresh and we avoid clogging shelves with a bunch of Megatrons.

Of course, that could just lead to clogging shelves with a bunch of figures most people didn't ask for because I doubt a lot of kids are begging for characters like Sentinel, Deathsaurus, or RID Prime.

On the plus side though, despite the more G1 faithful designs (which isn't bad, just not my aesthetic), I've probably been more excited for these new figures because of the massive increase in quality. Earthrise I was hoping would let me save money, but that leader Prime is seriously tempting me, and a lot of the rumored figures are new versions of characters that haven't gotten that many figures.

And given the "Budget MP" design of these figures, I believe that this trilogy might be the G1 swansong for a year or two. It's definitely not going away, but Hasbro might start adding in remakes of bricks/GPS riddled figures from Beast Wars, Unicron Trilogy, and maybe even touch on some ideas from the "G1.5" era like the Predators or Turbomasters. Of course, we might get some of these in WFC part 3, or even a few in Earthrise.

Yeah.

So, is anyone able to look at Earthrise Starscream and not see those giant gaps between his pectoral vents and shoulders?

It's almost all I can see.

If you have one or more of the many iterations of the Classics mold, you get used to it. ;)

Ah those. Never seen them, but then again, let's see if the final releases suffer from that when properly tabbed in.

:EDIT: and he does! Darn.

I kept hoping people were simply not being careful enough with the transformation. :(
