At San Diego Comic Con it was revealed that the series of Asia only exclusive Generations toys (at least most of them as it doesn’t look like we are getting Voyager Brawn or the G1 deco Leaders Ironhide and Starscream) are coming to Toys R Us this fall. However, since I didn’t know that, I did pick up the Legends (Bluestreak, Hoist, Motorbreath, and Thundercracker) and Deluxes (Cliffjumper, Springer, Swerve, and Wheelie).
Transformers Generations Legends Hoist
Mold Used: Hoist is made from the Transformers 2010 Legends Trailbreaker mold slightly remolded with a new weapon.
Vehicle Mode: Hoist of course was originally a tow truck, but as none were available to repaint, the Trailbreaker mold is a good substitute since Hoist’s was based on Trailbreaker in G1.
Robot Mode: They chose not to remold the heads on the Legends class toys. It would have been nice if they had, as Hoist and Trailbreaker had completely different heads. Still very nice though.
Overall: Nowhere near as nice as the others in the assortment, but still worth getting.
Thanks for reading!
