The paint job is really nice.  It is nicely detailed, and the silver paint on his chest really looks great.  I would love to see him all in silver, but the gray doesn’t look bad.

Unfortunately, the most interesting thing about the toy is on the side of the box.

If you read this blog, you understand how woefully awful I think the initial wave of Transformers Thrilling Thirty toys were.  With a few exceptions, I think it is an insult to the Transformers brand to included a one step change toy meant for small children as part of the thirtieth anniversary celebration.  This toys is aimed at kids who aren’t old enough to understand there were Transformers before the 2007 movie.  The Thrilling Thirty should have been celebrated with great toys of great characters from all generations.  This fails miserably.  I really hope that for the thirty-fifth anniversary that Hasbro can get it’s act together.  The anniversary line is not for kids.  It’s for fans who have stuck with the franchise, I many case for their whole lives.  I would rather the anniversary have passed unacknowledged than get this miserable line.

Thanks for reading!
