Transformers: Generations: Earthrise Deluxe Class Hoist


Vehicle Mode: Hoist is awesome in vehicle mode. He’s an absolutely perfect homage to the G1 toy. He has great paint apps, and Hasbro painted his non-translucent side windows, something they often forget to do.

Robot Mode: Hoist is equally awesome in robot mode. His head sculpt is great, and his paint apps are perfect. If I wanted to find something to complain about, I’m not crazy about his gun hand. The G1 toy gun hand was silver, and in the cartoon it was white. It’s not bad, it just seems kind of odd for it to be orange.

Overall: They are certainly starting Earthrise off right. Hoist is awesome. I can’t recommend him enough.

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.
