Creature Mode: How is it we’ve had to wait almost 35 years for this? I have a third party Allicon, but this is the real deal, and for once, Hasbro mostly didn’t fuck it up! First off, I’m not crazy about his legs. He is a bit more of an upright biped than in the animation. In the animation he walks a lot more like a two legged lizard dragging it’s tail. His legs could have been better. But the rest of him is awesome. His creature head is perfect, as are his paint apps. It’s so perfect, that I can ignore the legs. Let’s face it, it’s unlikely his legs would have folded up to look more correct without having a big block of robot leg underneath his body. So I can forgive that.
Robot Mode: There is one problem with Allicon’s robot mode, which is a little harder to swallow. His creature arms just hang off the sides of his robot arms. All they had to do was make them pivot around to the back of his arms. It wouldn’t bother me so much that way. They’d still be there, but they would be less visible. Other than that his robot mode is perfect. His head sculpt is perfect. I just wish they had painted his waist. In the movie his waist should be colored gray like the end of his creature snout.
Overall: The small issues aside, Allicon if awesome. He’s an absolute must have.
