Transformers: The Last Knight AllSpark Tech Figures Wave 1 (Barricade, Bumblebee, Drift, Hound)

Transformers: The Last Knight Toy Reviews

Read my review of the AllSpark Tech Starter Packs for details on how the stupid cube goes in their chest.

Barricade

Barricade’s car mode is pretty cool. They even used a simplified form of the Decepticon police logo. His robot mode isn’t awful, but isn’t great either. He’s just sort of there, which is the best description of the entire AllSpark Tech Line.

Bumblebee

If they painted the back half of his car, he wouldn’t look half bad in vehicle mode, but alas, Hasbro does not know how to properly paint cars. Again, robot mode is fine. Just fine.

Drift

I really like Drift’s car mode. It’s a great design, and probably the best part of the whole line. He also has one of the better robot modes.

Hound

Hound’s vehicle mode isn’t bad, but not as good as Drift or Barricade. His robot mode actually looks pretty good, maybe the best of the bunch.

Overall: These things are okay, but the whole cube gimmick is silly. Just put electronics in the toys.

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.
