So I kind of lied when I said I was done reviewing Transformers for a while.
This Starscream is huge. And awesome. I’m one of the few who actually enjoyed Galaxy Force (The original Japanese version of Cybtertron). It was a fun show, with one of the cooler looking Optimus Primes.
Anyway, like I said, this Starscream is huge. It comes with the crown from the Animated Movie! How cool is that?!
He has some excessive kibble and what not, but that seems to be the style with the more recent Transformers series (Until Animated anyway)
Great figure. (Sorry for no alt mode photo. I’ve frankly forgotten how to transform him)

Revoltech Giant Robo was the first Revoltech I ever bought. I loved the OVA (Although it had horrible subtitles), so I bought it the second I saw it.
He’s just excellent. A great design.
It’s hard to find flaws aside from, again, badly hidden joints in his arms.There’s really not a lot I can say about the figure. It’s just great.

I promise I’ll get to non-TF toys soon.
Revoltech Hot Rod is the last TF Revoltech I own. He’s a great figure, with, as always, lots of extras. He’s super poseable.
I’ve never had much with Hot Rod, but this figure definitely won me over, with all the personality is has.
Al the Revoltech joints are nicely hidden, unlike with Starscream. All in all a pretty sweet figure.

Starscream is awesome. That’s a fact. He’s a treacherous, backstabbing ‘ally’ of Megatron.
Revoltechs are also awesome. So when they come together: Double Awesome.
As always this Revoltech come with multiple hands and an alternate smirking head. He also comes with Megatron in gun mode, as seen in the photo. He’s crazy posable.
It’s a bit annoying, maybe, that you can see the Revoltech joint pegs. Nothing major though, just a small thing.
A great figure, very much worth getting if you get some cash to spare.

I love Revoltechs. They are awesome Japanese super posable small figures, with some great detail.
First up, Megatron, the big bad! Despite being based on Pat Lee art (The reason I haven’t bought Optimus Prime from this series), he’s awesome. You can pose him in some great stands.
He comes with another, smirking, head and about 6 hands, which can be a bastard to get in, but are all great when you do.
I especially love this pose, smirking, pointing the gun at you. Just a great figure.

Beast Wars Megatron is awesome. That’s science. I love the purple madman.
His figure is great, both in robot mode and in beast mode. He’s near perfectly cartoon accurate, and just beautiful.
Dino mode hides the robot mode extremely well. Like with Animated Grimlock, the tail feels a bit short, sadly.
All in all, a great figure.
I’m cutting it a bit short, but I’m still a bit sick.
