After what felt like an eternity without any incoming bots, there has recently been a bit of a flurry. Following Crackup and Predaking already this month, an additional four bots have now rolled into town!
I know lots of folks who are very deeply down the third party Legends scale rabbit hole. It’s all pretty much new ground for me, however, so when Kapow offered to give me a set of DX9 Coneheads to review I honestly had no idea what to expect.
Kapow have been kind enough to send me the DX9 Coneheads to review. Legends-scale is a bit of an unknown for me, but yeah, I see the appeal for sure. Have had these since last week but have been super-busy with some long overdue unpacking at home. I promise I’ll get around to the review ASAP!
That fucking green, though. He’s so green. Like, really green. It’s wonderful. Not that I’m saying Transformers have to be green to be good. I mean, Devastator is green and is good. Trees are green, in part, and I really like trees. Grass is green and grass is really good. But I look over at my collection and really there’s very little green. The chest panels on Maketoys Visualizers. Ironwill. Gundog. Acid Storm. Generations Allen. There’s a real green deficit going on, and Allen’s here to plug that gap.
So for those who don’t know, back in the day we had a Takara Masterpiece Megatron and… he wasn’t good. Reportedly designed on a super-tight deadline, the bot mode was fugly (which at least was authentic to the toy) and the transformation was insufferable.
