Transformers: Age of Extinction Toys R Us Exclusive Evolution 2-Pack Slug
At least this time they got the package art right.
Now, if we could only get this toy in those colors.
If you want to do this as the evolution of a character, then at least have one of them be in G1 colors. Would that really have been so hard to paint the Min-Con is silver and red? Instead they just use the exact same toy as they released on multiple occasions before. I would find this set far more interesting if Mini-Con Slug were in G1 colors. This is just pathetic.
You can read my previous review of this toy here. Details about the mold change are below.
As noted in the red boxes above, the newer version on the left has more rounded horns compared to the first version. Wave 2 deluxe Slug also has this change. It’s not a huge thing, probably done for safety. It never ceases to amaze me that no one thought of that before they started production.
Overall: Unless you missed out on the Mini-Con, you can probably skip this one. It, like the other Evolutions sets, is part of the Thrilling Thirty if that matters to you. It does not matter to me in the least.
Thanks for reading!
