Decepticon High Command, RiD style!

Standard

Finally got my hands on an RiD Soundwave. Nice figure. The arms a little fiddly in bot mode but he’s got a pleasingly interesting transformation and I like his unconventional (for Soundwave, at least) alt mode. Certainly puts the somewhat disappointing Starscream to shame. Man, what a fall from grace compared to the incredible First Edition Deluxe TFP mold that was. Not to say he’s without credit – the bot looks very sleek indeed, but the tolerances on the legs are all over the shop and those shoulders like to pop out far too easily. Neither compares to Megatronus, OBVIOUSLY, who is one of the best deluxes in recent times are arguably the high point of the RiD line? Although there’s some fine competition – Fracture, Drift, maybe Optimus and even the humble Bumblebee are all fine bots.
