GRIMLOCK & INSECTICON & MIRAGE & OPTIMUS PRIME G1 & RAVAGE & RODIMUS & SHOCKWAVE & STARSCREAM G1
Categories: Robot Hero
These eight figures are, of course, cute little versions of the original G1 characters they embody and they are doing a pretty good job. All are recognisable, all are detailed enough to please the eye without being overloaded. Posability is restricted to the arms and in most cases the head, which isn't much, but then again, some G1 figures didn't even have that. So to sum it up, eight cute little guys with lots of nostalgic value.
The Robot Heroes are, of course, more of a fan bonus to the Movie line than an actual part, as I doubt very much any of these guys will make an appearance on the silver screen. Still, they are coming out as part of the line, so here they are. They don't transform, they are barely posable, but they are cute and lovable and full of nostalgia for the G1 fan. The rating here is purely subjective, of course, but I love these little guys. If you're a G1 fan and can get them, then do so. They are nice to put on your shelves.
