Transformers: Studio Series Voyager Constructicon Mixmaster
Mixmaster is one of eight Constructicons (nine if you include Skipjack, AKA Yellow Rampage) 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.
Vehicle Mode: Mixmaster’s cement mixer mode is pretty much perfect. I suppose they could have better hidden his claws that sit on ether side of the back of the truck, but they don’t look that out of place. His paint job is great, if a bit monochrome, but he’s a cement truck, it’s not like he should have a lot of flashy colors, and it is accurate to the movie.
Robot Mode: In robot mode Mixmaster is nowhere near as bizarre as Hightower, but he isn’t my favorite design. His smokestacks that stick out to each side of his chest don’t actually connect to anything, nor do they lock in place. His arms are too long, and I hate his hands. He’s not awful, and to my recollection, pretty screen accurate. Having said all that, my biggest complaint about Mixmaster is that he has no weapon, like most of his Studio Series Constructicon comrades.
Overall: I can’t wait for Devastator! Mixmaster looks great, but being part of Devastator makes him and absolute must have.
Thanks for reading!
