Kapow Toys Review Transformers AM-29 Arms Micron Shockwave

Hier kommt die Review zum Transformers AM-29 Arms Micron Shockwave von unserem Sponsor Kapow Toys

Transformers Arms Micron AM-29 Shockwave

Now this is a strange one, Takara kick off their own Generations line this very month with TG-01 & 02 FOC Optimus and Jazz yet Shockers got rammed in the Arms Micron line which has left him somewhat overlooked. Coming in a lighter shade of purple than his Hasbro compatriot he appears closer to the cartoon Shockwave which will please a lot of people. Size wise he's definitely not any bigger ( just kidding ) and suffers from some quite thin legs, I however think it works and is a very nice representation of whats seen on screen in the video game. He has a bundle of articulation in the arms and legs, the head swivels but sadly there is no waist swivel which in these days of cutting costs is understandable on a deluxe class figure. The micron is neatly put together but has a very strange alt mode, it does come across as a gun with bug legs, it is also not capable of snapping onto Shockwaves arms and entirely concealing the fist so must always be hand mounted which is a little bit of a letdown but not the end of the world.

Alt mode is improved by the bulkier Micron figure in that it helps the ship hold together very tightly, you also get some nice battle damage stickers to plaster over the bulkhead making him look nice and worn. The style of the alt mode is fully Cybertronian appearing to be a cross between a flying cannon / ship, I personally like it but know some people don't having hoped for a full on space gun.

To conclude, FOC Shockwave has been a paint to find and when people do its usually at a premium but still cheaper than this version, does a Micron add enough value to warrant a purchase ? probably not so this will only be for you if you fancy completing your AM collection, like the lighter shade of purple or just flat out cannot find the FOC version.

Overall we score Shockwave 7.5/10

Kapow Toys Review zu Transformers Prime Dark Energon Wheeljack

Hier ist die Review von unserem Sponsor Quelle: Kapow Toys zum Transformers Prime Dark Energon Wheeljack.

Dark Energon Deluxe Wheeljack

If you want a Slicer for your collection then this is your guy, its already a really cool mold which I own as Wheeljack and Deadend, did I hesitate on a 3rd ? yeah I did, I wasn't sure about these guys until they were in hand, what swung it was the fact they are not all translucent, its mostly the arms and lower legs, everything else is pretty much regular solid plastic.
Not going over old ground too much this guy has great articulation and swords so there are 2 good points straight away, his 3rd and best point is the new colours, they really do pop especially the red eyes set against a burnt orange / gold mouth plate. Car mode is nice and sleek and fits together very well without any apparent problems. If your not a repaint fan then consider this for your classics collection, I know Botcon did Slicer but that figure is a brick, this guy is sleek and sexy with turbo handling!
Overall we score Dark Energon Wheeljack a mighty 8/10

Kapow Toys Review zu TF-Prime AM-25 Arms Micron Nemesis Prime

Transformers Arms Micron Nemesis Prime

nem15 nem1 nem2 nem3 nem4 nem5 nem6 nem7 nem8 nem9 nem10 nem11 nem12 nem13 nem14

An underrated figure gets even better with a new black deco and massive Arms Micron blade! Powerizer Optimus didn't set the world alight due to a number of things, 1) Megatron looked better 2) The First Edition kicked butt 3) He had that hideous weapon and loads of horrible grey visible on him, but he was still a good toy that a lot of folks missed out on, hopefully this will rectify things with Nemesis reaching a wider audience. Coming with the obligatory sticker sheet Nemesis is primarily black and dark charcoal grey with the chest being broken up via the red windows and light grey border. It works very well, so well that you may chose not to apply your stickers, I prefer them applied as they add a little more detail and help bring out the red on his forearms more.

Articulation wise Nemesis is very capable with lots of ball joints allowing him to twist and turn into a variety of poses, he is also very well balanced which might come a surprise due to the large back pack made up of the trucks side panels. The Micron is makes a very cool weapon but not such a cool Micron looking a little like a pelican in its robot mode but I'm not displaying him that way and the blade mode is pure win!

Truck mode again can either have stickers on or off and it looks great, I've taken some pics with and without so you can check it out and make your mind up. I personally like the stickers on as it gives it that higher level of detail and contrasts well with the black, a really nice touch by Takara is the inclusion of 5 M.E.C.H stickers which you can place on Nemesis to your hearts content giving him that nice link to the TV show.

Overall he is a repaint so automatically becomes less desirable for some but he is Nemesis Prime, a character thats always been popular, we score him 8/10

Kapow Toys Review zu Generations Fall of Cybertron Kickback und Air Raid

Unser Sponsor Kapow Toys hat Reviews zu den Generations Fall of Cybertron Kickback und Air Raid gemacht.

Fall of Cybertron Fireflight

The Wave 3 repaint of Shockwave comes with a brand new chest, colours, weapons and head. Having had a name change to Air Raid along the way this guy seems to make a much better usage of the cybertronian ship alt mode than Shockwave did who suffered from complaints he was too small, Air Raid however does not share this fate as there is nothing to measure him against other than than the existing G1 toy which is tiny.
Most of you will know what to expect of the articulation on this guy, it does the job and does it well, only gripe is no waist swivel. Weapon wise he comes with a modification of Shockwaves 3 pronged cannon minus a prong this forms the base of the huge sword if you can be bothered to make it out of all 3 sections, we tried but in total honesty it didn't stay together well and looked kind of pants, they do however all stand on their own very well, the small sword being of particular awesomeness. You can mount the gun on Air Raids arms with the fist introverted or simply in his hand, the swords can be hand held only. Both the gun and large sword can be stored on Air Raids back.
Overall this is a good use of an existing mold, the weapons, head and chest have changed it enough to warrant a purchase for hardcore fans or those who do not own Shockwave, we score Air Raid - 8/10

Fall Of Cybertron Kickback

Now this guy is definitely the star of the show along with Starscream. The only other brand new mold in Wave 3 is one of the Dinobots main foes from the FOC video game. He comes with a massive weapon in the form of an energon crossbow which which shoots the disc via a grey switch on top, the purple blades can be detached to become either handheld blades or part of Kickbacks alt mode.
Articulation is very good, the arms have a lot of swivel and ball joints in them and the legs the same, he has no waist swivel but does have ball jointed ankles allowing a lot of cool stances. The panels on his chest and shoulders can get in the way if I'm honest but its not enough to annoy, his forearms can be slid up or down to form blades and as you can see from the pics he looks really good either way.
Alt mode was looking a but bland from the stock images but once in hand its actually really big and hold together well, he even has a bug shell formed by the arms which I myself wasn't aware of before having it in hand.
Kickback is nice addition to the line, he does look like he belongs in the Prime universe slightly more than the FOC one but thats not a bad thing.
Overall Kickback scores 9/10

Kapow Toys Review zu X-Transbots Glider Red Version

Hier kommt eine Review von unserem Sponsor Kapow Toys zum X-Transbots Glider Red Version.

Kapow Toys Reviews X-Transbots Glider

I love Powerglide, not necessarily the toy but the grumpy guy from the 80's cartoon with ''The Girl Who Loved Powerglide'' being one of my fave episodes of all time ( go on, rib me for it ) so this figure interested me greatly. The Universe / Classics version didn't do it for me with the original being too big and slightly rubbish so I've been looking for something to fill the gap, for £30 this does the job and does it quite well.
Feeling far more solid than i imagined in hand the first thing you notice is the thickness of the plastic, compared to recent mainstream releases of the same size this guy feels solid and weighty, the plane mode also holds together well, again far better than I expected. Upon transforming you are met with a middle of the road process, you pull the wings outward and along with the tail fins they split off from the main body on hinges then fold upwards, the lower legs are quite nifty so I won't ruin it for anyone with a description. Nice touches include being able to store his gun in the chest cavity whilst in plane mode and a raised heart imprinted inside the same cavity for when he is in robot mode.
Whilst a robot Powerglide once again fits together far tighter than I expected, he's not perfect but good enough for me, he has some nice articulation in the arms with shoulder and elbow swivels, his ankles also have ball joints allowing some good poses, I would have liked some more movement in the hip joint which is hindered in its outward movement but I'm guessing this is so he stays together in jet mode. As you can see from the images he is well balanced, enough so that he can stand on one leg unaided, weapon wise he comes with his main animation style pistol along with a large pistol and a knife. Due to the design of the hands only the animation style pistol and knife are a good fit, the large pistol tends to slip out but its a minor gripe when you have the choice of 3 weapons and easily remedied with a touch of clear nail polish.
Overall this exceeded my expectations which were not high and has turned out to be one of the most fun figures I've played with this month, its not perfect but will fill that Powerglide sized gap in your collection without a problem and is probably the best rendition of the character currently available.

Kapow Toys Review zu Toyworld TW-T01 Grind Rod

Hier kommt die Review von unserem Sponsor Kapow Toys zum Toyworld TW-T01 Grind Rod.

Toyworld TW-T01

I love Throttlebots, just not the toys that we got in the 80's, I always felt they utterly sucked compared to the amazing designs I was seeing in the Marvel UK comic and the cartoon so when I first saw this guy I got quite excited and he does not let the side down. Toyworld crashed on to the scene with Hegemon, a figure many were unsure of but in the end turned out to be really quite awesome and one of the best G1 style Megatron figures we've had so how does Grind Rod hold up ? very well in all honesty, the build quality is better with a fantastic grade of plastic being used and super tight joints all over, it feels solid in hand and above all professional. The outer packaging itself is great, really looking the part with a display window and lots of superb graphics including a teaser for the second release Aurora.

Grind Rod comes in jeep mode and free wheels across any surface without problems, the panels all line up and stay tight throughout any handling, upon changing to robot mode you find just how well made he is with nice tight ball joints and panels easily clicking out and into place. As a figure he is very good looking and capable of a lot of movement including that all important but often missed out waist swivel. If there is a criticism its that the gun could have done with a longer handle to prevent a small clearance issue with the forearm panels however its a minor complaint which takes nothing away from a figure which will slot in with your Classics collection putting some of the official efforts to shame.

Keep it up Toyworld this is great stuff!

We score Grind Rod 8/10 - add an extra point if your a Throttlebot fan.
