Blog #619: Toy Review: Transformers Collector’s Club Exclusive Transmutate

Transformers Collector’s Club Exclusive Transmutate

When they released Runamuck and Over-Run a few years ago, I really hated Over-Run’s box.  They pictured both toys on the box, but only put Over-run’s name on it.  That was idiotic to me.  If the box is meant for both toys then it should say that.  This time they put both Transmutate and Rampage on the same box with their names and added this at the bottom:

To me this makes a lot more sense.  They want to do a unified box, then do it right.  This time they did.  I hate the boxes anyway, but at least this makes sense.

I really love the First Edition Arcee mold, and these colors are perfect for Transmutate.  I wasn’t really sure I was going to like this one, but I really do.  Even not doing a new head looks okay, though I would have liked it to have a new head.

The only real problem with this toy is the price.  $59 is overpriced, and if so much of the cost is in the box, then they should have just had Hasbro package it on a standard card, or even better just bagged it.

I have to take off the grade for being so terribly overpriced.

Grade: B+

Thanks for reading!
