Fallback - Reveal The Shield - Figure

Fallback

Sometimes, Hasbro doesn't have access to names previously used. Take Outback, for instance. The name has since been granted to another entity. In an effort to keep some correlation, they decide to use the name Fallback instead. Add that name to a repaint of ROTF Brawn and you have the subject of this review.

Bio

Fallback has never been particularly interested in following the rules. The fastest way between two points, after all, is a straight line. Given a destination, Fallback will gladly drive straight to it, smashing through or knocking over anything that gets in his way.

Alt Mode

Fallback is an exact duplicate of ROTF Brawn, with only paint changes. The vehicle is done almost exclusively in a sandy tan color. All the railings and guards are in black. The grille and door vents are silver. You'll even spot some amber on the front turn lens.

The rubsign is located on the hood, which will reveal Fallback's ties to the Autobots. This is a great mold due to all the details in the body. The trick is for someone to detail it out to bring those details out in fill, such as the tail lights.

Alt Mode Specs

Length: 5.75in/146.1mm
Wheelbase:3.63in/92.2mm
Width:2.13in/54.1mm
Height:2.25in/57.1mm
Scale Ratio:N/A
Wheels: 4, rotating.
Detailed cockpit:N/A

Transformation

Identical to ROTF Brawn.

Robot Mode

The coloration similarities between G1 Outback and RTS Fallback is no coincidence. The tan and rust scheme is an almost faithful tribute to the G1 minibot. Some orange can also be spotted on the abdomen. Head mold is unchanged, and the eyes are piped clear.

As well as having the shoulder canon, he also has a pair of hand pistols. Interestingly, the clips are clear while the rest of the pistol is black. This was a great mold to begin with and, in what happens from time to time, has made out for a very smart repaint.

Articulation

Feet:Screw hinge, 75 degree backward bend
Knees:Screw hinge, 90 degree bend.
Hips: Ball joint, 225 degree bend, 75 degree spread and 75 degree inward flex
Waist:Pinned for unlimited rotation
Shoulders:Ball joint, unlimited rotation and 90 degree spread. Inner pin hinge adds additional 45 degree spread
Elbows:Double pin hinge, 180 degree bend
Head:Ball joint, 75 degree rotation and 75 degree downward bend

Although plagued with excessive panels, it doesn't interfere with his great range of articulation. Hip joints are still prone to popping off.

Robot Mode Specs

Height:5in/127mm
Width:4in/101.6mm
Depth:2.63in/66.8mm
Supplied accessories:(1) pair pistols

Verdict

Alt Mode: Tan repaint looks good on the vehicle, but could use some paint detailing
Robot Mode:Near perfect tribute to G1 Outback. Hips tend to be weak, though.
Overall:One of those times when a repaint is done just about right.

Class:Deluxe

MSRP:$13

Like school, I grade on a bell curve. 10 is perfect with negligible flaws, 9 is very good with only a couple of noticeable problems, 8 is average, 7 is fair with several issues but still very usable as a figure. I reserve from 6 down to figures with moderate to severe issues. To be honest, not ma... read more

It seems you rarely rate a figure less than 8 or 9 out of ten. I like the images on your reviews and the detailed description of transformation, coulors and articulation but i find the numerical rating system is not as accurate. Sorry if i offended.......just trying to be critically constructive.

2 words. Autobot Outback. Looks like you are buying all of the figures this time eh Blitz? I like the colors on him, just still don't like the feet, just seems too small. Something seems off, just like Brawn....er...Autobot Brawn. I do however like the way the head looks better on Brawn than thi... read more
