Transformers: Age of Extinction One Step Changers Wave 3 (Helicopter Drift, High Octane Bumblebee, Galvatron, Slug, Steeljaw, Grimlock)


One Step Changer Helicopter Drift

Drift’s helicopter mode is awesome.  They did a great job on it, lots of nice molded detail, and a great overall design.  His robot mode has the same problem as most helicopter Transformers.  His rotors don’t fold and just sit on his back.  I understand what they were going for.  They wanted the blades to resemble his swords sheathed on his back, but they are just two long for it to look right.


One Step Changer High Octane Bumblebee

High Octane Bumblebee uses the same design as One Step Changer Drift (Car).  He looks really cool, and I really like this design.  They should have used this design for a lot more of these toys.


One Step Changer Galvatron

Galvatron is my favorite of the wave.  He’s really blocky in robot mode, but that’s not a big deal to me.  He has a great head sculpt and doesn’t have a hole in his chest.  His truck mode is fantastic.


One Step Changer Slug

I previously reviewed Slug as part of the Target Exclusive One Step Changer Silver Knight 6-Pack.


One Step Changer Steeljaw

Steeljaw looks okay in both modes, but he would look better in the movie colors.  There is a Steeljaw coming in Robots in Disguise, a truck that turns into a wolf like humanoid robot.  I kind of think this was there way of getting the character out there before RID toys come out next year.

Overall:  Not a bad wave overall.  I really like Bumblebee and Galvatron.  Drift has a great vehicle mode.  Steeljaw and Slug are just okay.

Thanks for reading!
