Blog #344: Toy Reviews: Bot Shots Dragon Track (Optimus Prime and Megatron)

Before I get to the specifics, you can read my thoughts on the Bot Shots concept here, the online video game here, and the new 2013 Bot Shot types.

Bot Shots Dragon Track (Optimus Prime and Megatron)

The track is a joke.  It’s just a straight track with a launcher at each end and a dragon that you can spin around in the middle.  One of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen.

These are our first look at Flip Shots Optimus Prime and Flip Shots Megatron.  Optimus is okay in vehicle mode.  He’s not as nice as the Spin Shot version.  I’m not sure what Megatron is supposed to be.  Is he a car?  Is he a plane?  Is he a car with wings?  Whatever he is, it’s not that great.

In robot mode, Megatron is okay, but again, he doesn’t look like Megatron.  I really love Optimus Prime’s robot mode.  The metallic blue paint looks really nice.

It might be that he is based on Beast Hunters Megatron, a voyager toy who was recently found listed in a Walmart computer, but as we haven’t seen it, this is just a guess.  It wouldn’t really make a lot of sense since Optimus is based on G1 and not Beast Hunters.

Thanks for reading!

    Hey 🙂 If I had to guess, he’s based on the first release of the Cybertron Megatron figure. That huge thing turned into the Batmobile (he was huge) and there are elements of that in this vehicle mode SD design.
