Blog #228: Toy Reviews: Transformers Bot Shots Launchers Wave 2 (Starscream and Ironhide)

Transformers Bot Shots Launchers Wave 2 Starscream & Ironhide

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

Transformers Bot Shots Launchers Starscream

I really like the Starscream, but they should have painted Starscream the same silver color as the trailer.  He would have looked awesome, but the gray jet looks like a jet with a big rear half of a jet hooked onto it.  It would look much more like one single toy with a better paint job.  The other disappointing thing about Starscream is the lack of any deployable weapons in the trailer.  The other three all have them.  Some of that may be limitations on the shape of the vehicle, but I think they could have certainly added a couple of fold out cannons.

Transformers Bot Shots Launchers Ironhide

I suppose the idea was good, put a trailer on a pick up truck, but why the treads?  They should have made it look more like a camper.  The fold out saw blades seem a bit silly, but at least he has some weapons, and they matched the color from the trailer and Ironhide, so that looks nice.

Thanks for reading!
