BUMBLEBEE G1 & JAZZ G1 & MEGATRON G1 & OPTIMUS PRIME G1 MATRIX & SOUNDWAVE & THUNDERCRACKER & ULTRA MAGNUS & UNICRON
Allegiance: Other Villain Categories: Robot Hero Year: 2007
Robot Mode: The second wave of the Robot Heroes once again contains miniature versions of beloved G1 characters, reimagined in a small and cute form. All figures are nicely detailed for their size and easily recognisable for who they're supposed to be. Posability is restricted to shoulders and head, but that's okay. Small stuff like Soundwave's hand posed to open his cassette deck and Jazz giving people the thumbs-up while grinning just add fun to these figures. Adorable and too cute for words.
Remarks: The second set of eight figures from the Robot Heroes line once again features G1 characters, though the pairings are a bit odd. Optimus Prime, for example, never even met Unicron nor did he wield the Matrix against him. That was Rodimus Prime. And Ultra Magnus and Megatron never had an on-screen confrontration, either. Magnus would have been better paired with Galvatron. That's just details, though. I'm a bit miffed that we're already getting a second Optimus Prime here and that Thundercracker is not only a repaint of Starscream, but in the exact same pose, too. Still, all in all, the Robot Heroes are still lots of fun. If you're a G1 fan, go get them.
