Blog #1667: Toy Review: Transformers: Studio Series Deluxe Constructicon Scrapmetal

Transformers: Studio Series Deluxe Constructicon Scrapmetal

Scrapmetal is one of eight Constructicons who combine to form Devastator. I will add links to reviews of the others when they come out. Read my reviews of Deluxe Scrapmetal, Deluxe Hightower, Voyager Long Haul, Voyager Rampage, Voyager Mixmaster, Voyager Scrapper, Leader Overload, Leader Scavenger, and Combiner Devastator.

Scrapmetal

Vehicle Mode: Scrapmetal’s excavator mode looks great. He has great paint apps and lots of molded details. I have a few issues with his design. The treads don’t really lock in place, so they tend to separate in the middle very easily. Also, the piece that sits right behind his cab doesn’t seem to line up properly with the other parts forming the back of the vehicle. It’s not glaringly bad. I need to fiddle with it some more. It’s possible there is some subtle thing that’s not lined up, but I can’t imagine what that is. He’s not a super complicated toy.

Robot Mode: I’m not sure I love his head sculpt, but it’s not bad. Other than that, his robot mode is awesome. It would have been nice if he had real hands and a weapon, but the claws aren’t too bad.

Overall: I can’t wait for Devastator! Scrapmetal is a cool toy, and doesn’t wow me, but being part of Devastator makes him and absolute must.

Thanks for reading!
