Okay, so I guess the reason he is Hunter and not Shokaract is that this is supposed to be him before he became Shokaract.  I get it, sort of, but if they want to do an homage to a previous toy then give it the right name.  This is not as egregious as other things they have done.  The toy itself is pretty great.  He’s got a really great paint job, but like Rampage his head is awfully small and doesn’t really look right in vehicle mode.

Grade: B

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
