Blog #213: Toy Review: Transformers Bot Shots Battle for the Matrix

Bot Shots Battle for The Matrix

Before I get to the specifics, you can read my thoughts on the Bot Shots concept here, and on the online video game here.

In all pictures, the new one is on the left.


Megatron has been completely repainted.  I really like the color scheme.

Optimus Prime

Optimus Prime’s repaint is hardly worth mentioning.  All the back parts are now gray.  That’s it.  If they aren’t next to each other, you can’t tell which one you’re holding.  They would have been better off doing a black trailer.


Brawl looks good in green, but what I really noticed is the paint apps.  This version and the single pack version have the missiles in his launchers painted.  The three-pack version has the barrel of his cannon painted.  Couldn’t they have done both?  Is Hasbro really that cheap?  Why am I even asking?


This is the fourth version of Bumblebee (chase version not pictured).  I think enough is enough.  They should have called this version, LemonBeen.

Thanks for reading!

I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
