ICONIC MODES: Figure features classic conversion between robot and sports car modes in 29 steps. Perfect for fans looking for a more advanced converting figure. For kids and adults ages 8 and upIt’s roughly the same size as a Siege deluxe, but a lot heftier thanks to being made of more solid chunks of plastic, and a bit of diecast metal (though it’s not visible in this mode). In fact, the whole thing feels really solid and durable, and unlike a lot of G1 toys from the first two years, I don’t feel like I need to wear kid gloves to handle it. Studio Series has always allowed fans to reach past the big screen and build the ultimate Transformers collection inspired by iconic movie scenes from the Transformers movie universe. Now, the Studio Series line is expanding to include the epic moments and characters from the classic 1986 The Transformers: The Movie, bringing fans a whole new series of screen-inspired figures to collect! (Each sold separately. Subject to availability.)

Transformers: Legacy brings together fan-favorite characters from across the Transformers multiverse. Figures feature deco inspired by their universe with an updated Generations design. In honor of the almost 40-year legacy of Transformers entertainment, the fandoms come together from across the Transformers multiverse, all in one toy line. Over the last few years, I sold most of my G1 stuff, but I intend to keep this figure. It’s solid, it’s got a really fun transformation, and it looks nice. Even if you don’t collect any G1, I still recommend it as a curiosity piece, or as a small vertical slice of “what mid-to-late G1 was like.” Of course, the real question is “how much is it worth?” To put it bluntly, with the exception of the smaller minibots, I feel like the current run of Wal-Mart exclusive G1 reissues is overpriced for what you’re getting, and you should wait for a sale, like the current run of Hot Rod reissues eventually found themselves on. I bought mine years ago, and don’t recall what I paid, but it’s something I’m never letting go of, and am happy with it. So, it’s worth getting, but keep an eye on how much you pay.

Figure also includes 2 movie-inspired blasters and 2 blast effects, and features buzz saw and spark welder hand attachments inspired by the scene where Hot Rod slices through robot kelp and giant squid tentacles, then repairs Kup.No lie, this is my favorite part of the toy. It just feels really satisfying. I guess this is what reviewers mean by “handfeel.” It takes only a few moments to complete, but is involved enough to feel satisfying. Basically, you pull the legs down, pull the arms out, flip the hood down to reveal the head (with a bit of flipping and finessing), and spin the roof and spoiler around. It’s all about moving big chunks around, and snapping things into place. I particularly sliding the legs down, and flipping the feet out. It’s hard to explain, but this is where a lot of the tactile fun is for me.
