Hello everybody and welcome to my next Transformers review. And before we continue with that, just a reminder that I'm selling my PS3, which you can find more details about here.
Today, we'll now start taking a look at the arm bots of Predaking, starting with the left arm. So, without further ado, may I present to you the Power of the Primes Predacon member, Rampage!
So, you keep the name Rampage, but not Tantrum? Why? Anyway, as you can see, Rampage is a red tiger that has tons of anger issues, and the best way to quell those anger issues is by letting him watch TV. No, really, that's a thing.
Keep up to that head sculpt for the tiger you can see that it's done in red plastic with some nice yellow for the eyes. This is about as high as he can look, unfortunately, but he can look down!
It's easier for him to check on his portable TV this way.
From the side you can see a lot of bulk to this cat, because like the leg bots, parts of the arm are part of Rampage. Not as much as you think, obviously, but a good chunk of it is.
And here we have the rear of the bot, and I don't what you're thinking, he's missing his tail! Well, that can be resolved very easily.
And there we go! Rampage now has a gun for a tail! The port is purposely slanted to give it the off center look, which I think is rather nice.
Posing wise, you got some movement up front and not a lot in the back. So, really, about what you'd expect.
And now for the comparisons, here are the usual suspects.
Shazam! Though interesting enough, a lot of the color palettes match up, compared to the other comparisons, but obviously, there's more orange on G1 Rampage than PotP Rampage.
Moving on to transformation, like before, it is rather simple and straight forward. Just follow the directions and soon you'll have Rampage from alt-mode...
To robot mode. You'd actually be surprised about some of the transformation here and there, as well as some of the sticker placement.
Getting close to that head sculpt you can see that is one red head. Probably from all the rage at not watching TV.
And like the others, he's got quite the backpack on him, but like the others, he has no balancing issues. Hooray!
You got good options for posing, including a waist swivel, though as you can see, he's still got that hollowness problem.
And, of course, he can hold onto his tail gun for maximum death!
And now for the comparisons on this half.
Bam! Too much red!
Wazam! It's actually rather surprising how much of the look is kept between the G1 incarnation and the PotP incarnation. Except PotP Rampage looks more red than orange.
And that does it for Rampage. Tomorrow we take a look at another Predacon figure, and hopefully they won't call for a Divebomb on our heads. Until then.
