Images of Cyberverse Powerglide
Please use this thread to discuss the Images of Cyberverse Powerglide news story on the main site.
TFW2005 member Fabermax has posted images of the Transformers Dark of the Moon Cyberverse Wave Two Powerglide toy.
This is what he has to say about the Transformers toy.
So on to a quick review. After opening him, I will say some of the hype
died down. He still is a cool homage to PG, but this figure needed to be
a deluxe! Plain and simple. He is just too small in my opinion. As you
can see in the pic with Cliff, CJ towers over the lil guy. And as some
had speculated the head DOES NOT turn. The transformation of the front
of the plane doesn't allow it.
Speaking of transformation, the plane mode by far outshines the robot
mode. The alt just screams G1 Powerglide, much more than the Universe
version does. Again, why oh why couldn't this have been a deluxe. The
Transformation of this guy is pretty slick too. Although he resembles
the A-10's from the Universe and RotF Aerialbots (comparison pics to
come later) his transformation is more complex, and that's cool
considering he is such a small bot. Think Breacher. One additional minor
gripe I have is that the colors are more maroon than red. Powerglide
was clearly a red plane, and this guy is more of the same color as
Warpath instead of Universe PG's bright vibrant red.
The missle/gun gimmick (i didnt take pics of it yet) didn't come out
that well to me. Once all the missiles combine it kind of looks like
a...bunch of missiles stuck together to look like a gun. More details
once I take pics.
Overall he's an ok figure, not as hype as I was when I saw him in
package vs opening him, especially when holding him up to Cliffjumper,
but some will be ok with that since he was a minicon, but for me the
minicon size has been re-established due to TF CHUG, and they missed the
mark on him again. Universe was too big and now DotM is too small.
