Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk review













Tomahawk - wicked little figure if a little light on good leg articulation, he transforms from gunship to Autobot pilot and back. Nice little touches include gattling guns on the end of the wings and a head sculpt which looks like he is wearing a helmet.

The rotors spin freely in alt mode and store okay in bot mode however they do get in the way a little bit, it would have been nicer if they folded up totally rather than in half.

Launchers are good, they can detach and be placed on his forearms or wings, they can also fit on other Transformers figures with the new rail / attachment gimmick.

Well worth a punt especially seeing as Hasbro UK have ditched plans to release him and Terradive in the UK........................but does that really suprise you ?

Hunt for the Decepticons Electrostatic Jolt Review
























Electrostatic Jolt - there is a lot of hate for this figure but I personally like him, sure he has his flaws like little to no head articulation and a lot of window panels sticking out in bot mode but he is different in a nice way.

For example Jolt has some awesome leg articulation especially in the ankles and feet allowing some cool poses as seen in the photo's, he also has the retractable whips which remind me a little of Omega Red from Wolverine.

His car mode is cool, just a normal Honda which fits nicely together, yeah its a family 4 door but hey, not everyone can be a sports car :) .

If you can pick him up for around £10 go for it, he's not going to set the world alight but he's not going to dissapoint in the way people seem to make out.

Transformers Reveal the Shield Jazz Review













In short - AWESOME! Jazz comes home with the ultimate update, it feels and looks like the Hasbro boys took their time over this one and its paid off in a big way. Although farly bland colour wise Jazz has tons of articulation and movement, he also comes with the bonus speakers which can either 1) combine with the gun - 2) flip out in bot mode - 3) flip out in car mode. Aswell as all this Jazz also has a spot on head sculpt and looks just like he should. He is a massive improvement over the Prowl / Silverstreak figure and steps it up another notch for this already awesome line of figures, roll on Wreck Gar and G2 Prime.
