Transformers: The Last Knight Toy Reviews

The Reveal the Shield toys use basically the same method of concealing the Autobot and Decepticon symbols as was used to hide tech spec data on G1 toy boxes. The toys look like crap. All they had to do was use rub signs. Would that have been so hard?

Barricade

I like the white roof, but the ridiculous art on his hood sucks.

Bumblebee

As unbelievable as it sounds, they actually painted Bumblebee’s rear window. This is a revolutionary idea. (I hope the sarcasm comes through clearly.) They included a tree of translucent red weapons, which was a nice addition to the set.

Grimlock

Grimlock is one of the least offensive in the set. He has minimal terrible paint apps.

Hound

This really pisses me off. They couldn’t be bothered to paint the windows on the original version. They even added silver paint apps to his guns. If not for the crappy paint apps on his hood, this might be a better version of Hound.

Megatron

They need to stop letting three year olds paint their toys. There are no weapons for Megatron included, which really sucks.

Optimus Prime

In robot mode, I actually like the additional paint apps on his legs. In robot mode he looks silly with that crap on his roof.

Overall: At least they included some new molding with the weapons instead of just repacking toys. That’s really not saying much.

Thanks for reading!
