Animated Blackout Review
Right, our thought on this little guy - we havent got the Hasbro version to compare it to but right off the bat takara tomy Blackout has nice colours and a nice finish, no chrome though which may or may not be a good thing dependant on how you look at it. He transforms easily enough, arms fold down from sides, rear rotor unclips and then the legs fold downward, last thing is to seperate the cockpit to reveal his funny little head.
With regard to articulation he's got just enough, the legs arent long enough to enable anything other than sitting, standing or squatting and the arms do not are just missing that extra joint to allow total movement like on Optimus.
Overall score a def 7.5 out of 10 and although pricey for a voyager probably worth it seeing as his US release seems to have gone quiet.
