Read my reviews of Blackjack, Breakdown, Dead End, Dragstrip, Menasor, Motormaster, Offroad.

Finally, we have all the Stunticons as they were meant to be!

Vehicle Mode: Wildrider (AKA Brake-Neck) has been repainted with a new head from Dead End.  G1 Dead End was based on a Porsche, and Wildrider on a Ferrari, so that’s close enough.  (I’m sure I’ve just greatly offended some car enthusiasts.)  I’m really not sure what the deal is with the red on the sides of the car.  The G1 toy was just gray with red windows.  The G1 animation gave him a thin red stripe along the bottom edge of the car body sides, but this one has the whole side red.  I would have liked to see him just gray, or with the thin red stripe.

Robot Mode: He looks pretty great in robot mode.  He has an original G1 animation head that is a little too narrow.  It’s pretty well done, but the small protrusions on the side of his head are too small, making the head narrow to fit in the allotted space.  I would have preferred a G1 toy head to this.

Overall: A definite must for anyone who cares about respecting the source material.

Thanks for reading!

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.
