Transformers: Age of Extinction: Constructbots Dinobot Riders Wave 1 & 2 (Bumblebee, Drift, Lockdown, Optimus Prime, Crosshairs, Hound)

These are awesome! They are meant to be paired with the Constructbots Dinobots. All six that were announced are all out.

Bumblebee

He’s got a nice head sculpt. I really like his car mode, though they should have remolded his feet so the bumper looked a little less out of place.

He could have used a little more blue, especially on his head it would have been nice. I prefer the way he transforms with the feet/bumper in back.

Lockdown

I love the colors and head sculpt. I’m just not sure what Dinobot he is meant to ride. I have to wonder if this means we will get evil Dinobots in the movie.

Optimus Prime

He’s got a better head sculpt than The Dinobot Warrior Optimus Prime. He seems to have too much blue on him in vehicle mode and too much red in robot mode, but there is only so much you can do with colors on these toys.

Crosshairs

Crosshairs needs a few black paint apps in vehicle mode, but he looks nice otherwise. I just wish his bumper was in back.

Hound

I love Hound, I think he’s my favorite of them. His head sculpt with the beard is fantastic.

Overall: I really like these. They are fun and cheap, and look great riding the Dinobots.

Thanks for reading!
