Masterpiece Lambor (Sideswipe) Review

image

Let me just say this right away. I’m a lil disappointed.

Of all the Masterpiece Transformers I own, this one is the most Blah of them. He’s just what he is.

image

The vehicle mode is very basic. My main gripe is the panel lines on the side. Other than that it has a ton of real life Lamborghini details. I love the weapon port on top.

image

The robot mode is good. It highly toon accurate and what makes it a masterpiece but it has only basic articulation. Gripes, the head seams small and I can barely see his eyes. The most painful decision they made though is his crotch plate. I hate hate when they give a figure a crotch skirt the looks good until you raise his hips too far up.

This is how high you can kick the legs before things get weird.

Kick all the way up and and…..

At the end of the day, this it’s a cool figure that I’m happy to own but it was not worth $80. It could have really benefited from having diecast but oh well.

TMan out!……

Toy Action-Masterpiece Prowl

image

The Transformers More than meets the Eye pilot was so impressionable on me. It had me in love with a character I never realized barely did anything on the show. Watching Prowl transform toy accurately was so cool to me and I couldn’t wait to own him.

Fast forward 18 yrs. Takara reissues G1 Prowl with some dynamic art work from Dreamwave Comics artist……yeah, going back to the days of brick posability was fun but so disappointing. I wanted to recreate the pose on his box. That was an impossible feat with his static legs.

Thankfully, Masterpiece Prowl is a dream come true. No problem getting him in tons of Dynamic poses.

Toy Action – MP Soundwave

image

Some action figures are already automatically dynamic looking and  require no effort to pose. Masterpiece Soundwave is not one of those figures. This picture shows that you definitely need persistence and just plain old dumb luck to wind up with a great action pose. I’ve owned this toy for almost a year and his wonky leg and ankle joints have fought me at every turn until now.
