Terradive - Movie - Figure

Terradive

For the people who weren't enamored with the Animated series, there were worries that the questionable aesthetics of the line would somehow start creeping into the universe in general. Then Lockdown crossed over to the Bayverse and proved that Animated designs can be properly interpreted. Now, we get a Bayverse interpretation of the Seeker design with Terradive.

Bio

Terradive loves to dive toward unsuspecting prey with the sun behind him. The light blinds his target, and the scream of his engines terrifies them, leaving them easy pickings for the blades of his trident. With Jetblade serving as a decoy, Tomahawk will never know what hit him.

Alt Mode

Terradive is officially listed as simply a fighter jet. There's no denying that the swept forward wing design is futuristic. The design is loosely based on the SU-47 Russian experimental aircraft. The color scheme is a mixture of orange, black and white. It looks surprisingly good on this jet. .

On the belly of the jet, you'll find a retractable 3pt landing system. The abscesses of the belly are well hidden with the weapon storage system, consisting of a horseshoe clip and a pinch tab. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if a certain purple repaint happened to come along in the coming weeks.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 6.25in/158.8mm
Wingspan:5in/127mm
Height:1.63in/41.4mm
Scale Ratio:N/A
Wheels: 3, retractable and molded.
Detailed cockpit:N/A

Transformation

Transforming to robot mode is about as complex as the jet design. Separate the wings from the fuselage. Pull forward on the nosecone to extend it from the cockpit. As you flip the nosecone upward, a protective guard will swing around. This will eventually cover the cockpit. With the nose pointing straight up, flip out the legs 180 degrees. Continue to flip over the nose so it covers the cockpit. Rotate the legs 90 degrees so the wings face forward. The wings sit on a rotating joint with a tab. Spin the rotator 180 degrees, then align the tab so that the slot on the inside of each wing clips to the tab. Fold out the feet.

Rotate the fuselage 180 degrees. Fold in the winglets behind the cockpit so they collapse around it. Carefully pull the engines apart to untab them, thehn rotate the engines to sit under the tailfins. Flip the engines out 180 degrees to form the arms. Flip the tailfin assembly forward 180 degrees. Lift up on the trap door between the tailfins to expose the head. Peel back the tailfin assembly 180 degrees. Note that this assembly is on 2 separate hinges. Once you clip the fuselage to the back, close the trap door. Fold in the shoulders adn clip the extruding tab into the slots on top of the chest. Rotate the arms 90 degrees so the orange section of the engine is facing to the side. Pull on the orange section, then rotate the engine port 180 degrees to expose the hands. Close the orange section back up. Pull the head down into position to finish.

Robot Mode

This is one wickedly executed robot mode. The legs and upper arms are done in black, with the forearms a mix of black and orange. The upper thighs are silver, while the shoulders are white. The head sculpt is vicious looking, with elements or RiD SkyByte in the design. The eyes are jeweled red, with clear piping in the back.

Terradive's main weapon is a spear. However, push down on the head and it unfurls into a trident. A staff weapon is only as good as the bot wielding it, and in this case Terradive has been given the proper arm articulation to do this. However, you have to lodge the thicker parts of the spear into the hands to keep a proper grip on the weapon. As far as Bayverse jets go, this one is the clear winner.

Articulation

Feet:Pin hinge, 90 degree bend
Knees:Pin hinge, 90 degree bend.
Hips: Ball joint, 105 degree bend and 90 degree spread. Slider tab under each hip for unlimited leg rotation.
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Dual pin hinges, unlimited rotation and 75 degree spread. Slider tab below shoulder for unlimited arm rotation
Elbows:Pin hinge, 180 degree bend
Hands:Slider tab for unlimited rotation
Head:Ball joint, unlimited rotation w/ 45 degree downward tilt

Joints are set up fairly well. However, the tab system to keep the shoulders in place can tend to slip out of position.

Robot Mode Specs

Height:5.75in/146.1mm
Width:3in/76.2mm
Depth:2.75in/69.9mm
Supplied accessories:(1) collapsible trident

Verdict

Alt Mode: Nearly flawless jet design, contrasting colors work well.
Robot Mode:Unique design blended with above average articulation.
Overall:With so many great non-movie characters, it makes you forget who WAS in the movie.

Class:Deluxe

MSRP:$13

I got this guy today. Fucking amazing. At first I was concerned about the shoulder tabs, but once I figured out that if you fold in his shoulder hinges past where they need to be to clip in before clipping in it fits a hell of a lot better because you have the tension from the shoulder hinges pushi... read more

I think Blitzwing's 10 out of 10 score is correct. Terradive is perfect. The jet mode looks great. The robot mode looks great, with no kibble at all.

Have to wait for a repaint cuz Toronto is lagging terribly.I won't see this fig until they've rehashed it with some horrible colour scheme. Can't win for losing.

Terradive is a GI Joe . Subtle hint? Do you think people would like the Seekers / Coneheads as this type of Aircraft? I like this plane. Imagine this guy as a Voyager class...
