Transformers: Generations: Amazon Exclusive Galactic Odyssey Collection: Shattered Glass Optimus Prime & Ratchet

Shattered Glass Optimus Prime

Previous Mold Use: Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime, Earthrise Leader Class Alternate Universe Optimus Prime

The specter of Anything-But-Fun Publications remains ever present, and thus we get more Shattered Glass. I guess it’s not so bad without the fiction, and they didn’t charge us $150 for $50 worth of toys, so it could be worse. Optimus Prime looks great. He has the broken windshield painted on. I wish just once they altered the mold to actually put the broken windshield in. Colors are perfect, and I love that they gave him the red eyes.

Ratchet

Previous Mold Use: Siege Deluxe Class Ironhide, Siege Deluxe Class Ratchet, Siege Deluxe Class Crosshairs, Earthrise Deluxe Class Ironhide, Earthrise Deluxe Class Ratchet

Ratchet looks pretty great, though I’ve never liked the dark face. I would rather his whole head be in darker colors. I love the darker blue windows. I wish they had used them on Ratchet and Ironhide. I really don’t like the blue feet because they look terrible in vehicle mode. Otherwise, he’s a great toy.

Overall: These are great toys, but unless you are a completist, or have some great attachment to Shattered Glass, you can probably skip it.

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.
