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.
