I don’t buy a lot of third party toys, but this one was on sale and I couldn’t resist.  Gears looks absolutely awesome.  He has a great vehicle mode that looks a lot like G1Gears.  He has weird wheels though.  They have these deep groves in them so he really clicks when he rolls.  In robot mode he has an amazing head sculpt.  He comes with two guns, but only has storage for one, so I think the second gun was an afterthought.  Really the only major complaint I have about him is that the plastic seems a little lower quality than I’d like and he would look better with rubber tires.

This is a really great toy.  I would not have paid full price, which I believe was around $70, but I got it on sale for $32, and it’s well worth that.

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.
