The pack comes with 3 guns, a headmaster robot, and a green box to connect the items to the figure. Lets check them out.
The Headmaster Robot
The headmaster comes in light grey with green arms. His very hard to see face is molded in an off yellow. Now this little guy does have some articulation but not much. His arms and legs are on a ball joint . His knees sorta bend but not much.
Now while I have to say the molded mouth pieces on both modes is very cool. But the little guy feels off. The quality and feel of the plastic does not feel not very strong or sturdy almost to the point where it feels cheap. Like a piece of chocolate from the dollar store I get afraid that this piece will melt in my hand not in my mouth. Now I may be exaggerating a bit but you get the drift. Looks good but bad plastic.
These too hit that g1 look of the original figure they were based from. But unlike its G1 counterpart these do not feel sturdy. If you drop them they sound hollow. headrobots probably did this to save on the cost of plastic. These feel like the stuff that come with the cheap $5 robots they sell at the local dollar general.
The Shoulder Cannon
Like the other 2 guns this cannon feels light but slightly sturdier plastic wise. It also hit's the g1 aspect and look. The cannon is also very hollow and really suffers from the decision to do that.
This box is used to connect the weapons on to the hasbro figure in vehicle mode and robot mode. The plastic is of a different variety of plastic and feels sturdy yet cheap at the same time. To use it it must be split apart to connect it to the bot. It is very difficult to separate it apart and mine actually formed stress marks from it.
See the stress mark?
This does not give me much confidence in its longevity for sure.
On the Bot
Well after all of that lets take a look how the kit looks on the Universe action figure.
I am here to take your beer and drink your women!!
Ok wait. I got it this time.
I am here to make love to your cattle and slaughter your women?
On the Vehicle
With the help of the box the weapons can be placed on the vehicle. I have to say they work. They don't look odd or out of place. The colors match the vehicle very well. The weapons don't look odd or out of place.
"That kid at the Taco Bell window better not screw up MY order up! AGAIN!!"
In an added extra the headmaster fits inside the vehicle as a driver. Which is very cool. You can't close the door down due to space restraints for those of you who are wondering.
The figures size works well against the vehicle as well. He doesn't look oversized or tiny against it. He looks like he belongs to the vehicle and not an add on part.
"Someone give me a push or it's gonna get ugly!!!"
The set works. In the end it really works. I was very surprised with that. The colors are close enough and they make the character look like it's an updated version of it's G1 Hasbro counterpart. But I can't honestly say it's worth the $40 it will run you on Ebay or the $31 it cost when it first came out on retail. The plastic quality and the fact that each piece seem to be made in a different plastic really hurt this add on kit. They feel like they got a bunch of left over pieces from different quality wise figures and put them all together to make the set. There is no continuity on the plastics of this set which is weird. Overall the look works but the price and quality doesn't.
Look Ma!! Im Dancing! Im Dancing!!
We are fam-i-ly!! All my brothers ,sisters and me!!
