Toy Review: Transformers: Unite Warriors Baldigus (Dangar, Dolrailer, Greejeeber, Hepter, Shuttler)

Dangar

Previous Mold Reviews: Generations Brawl, Generations G2 Brawl, Unite Warriors Brawl, Generations Nosecone, Generations Drillhorn, Generations Ironbison, Botcon Ramhorn

Dangar has an added weapon compared to other releases of this mold.  They have included the weapon from Unite Warriors Scavenger.  He’s been repainted in tan with brown camouflage.

Dolrailer

Previous Mold Reviews: Generations Hot Spot, Unite Warriors Hot Spot, Generations Onslaught, Generations Pyra Magna, Generations G2 Onslaught, Unite Warriors Onslaught, Botcon Bludgeon

I love the paintjob on Dolrailer.  The metallic gold paint looks awesome.  They have included the weapons from the Unite Warriors Scattershot repainted to match Dolrailer.  What I love about that is that he can keep his regular guns on his back the way he should in robot mode and still have weapons.  I forgot to take a picture of it, but Baldigus uses the hands and feet from Combiner Wars Computron, and the can attach to Dolrailer on each side.  It doesn’t look great, but at least there is a place to store them in vehicle mode.

Greejeeber

Previous Mold Reviews: Generations Swindle, Generations Hound, Generations G2 Swindle, Unite Warriors Swindle, Unite Warriors Hound

So, Greejeeber is a little darker green than Hound, and loses most of the paint apps from Unite Warriors Hound.  In robot mode he has an orange chest like the original toy did.  He includes the gun from Unite Warriors Long Haul.

Hepter

Previous Mold Reviews: Generations Alpha Bravo, Generations Blades, Generations Vortex, Unite Warriors Blades, Generations Skyburst, Generations Stormclash, Botcon Spinister, Generations G2 Vortex, Unite Warriors Vortex

I love the paint apps on Hepter in robot mode.  The red and orange look great on the green.  It is a shame that this is only the second, and likely last, use of the four blades on this mold.  I like it way more than the dual bladed rotors.  He comes with Unite Warriors Mixmaster’s gun.

Shuttler

Previous Mold Reviews: Unite Warriors Blast Off

Amazingly, this is only the second use of this mold making him the least repainted Unite Warriors/Combiner Wars mold (of the toys that actually combine).  Shuttler might be the most interesting toy in the set.  They actually have him transform differently than Blastoff in order to give him the orange chest.  I like the look of it this way.  They did swap his arms so his hands are on the correct sides.  This was a very interesting choice.  They included the gun from Unite Warriors Scrapper.

Baldigus

Previous Mold Reviews: Combiner Wars Bruticus, Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus, Unite Warriors Bruticus

Baldigus looks amazing.  I love the gold chest shield with the inverted G2 Decepticon logo.  The inclusion of the extra weapons allows all his guns to combine, which is what the original Baldigus toy could do.  Takara puts so much more attention to detail into their toys (usually) than Hasbro.  They also did not use the interchangeable hands and feet, but instead used Combiner Wars Computron’s hands and feet.  I really like the look of those, and I’m glad they chose to use them for Baldigus.

Overall: There is no new molding on Baldigus, but I loved the look of him so much I had to get one.  He is a must, especially for Car Robots/Robots in Disguise fans.

Thanks for reading!
