Warparth - Generations - Figure

It happens every time, doesn't it? Right as the last (and usually most desirable) wave of figures hit prior to a new series starting up, pickings are extremely slim. One of these scarce figures is the re-introduction of Warpath, a G1 original who has been absent from shelves for far too long.

Bio

Wherever the fight is, that's where Warpath wants to be. His super heavy armor and powerful weapons mean he doesn't have to worry about things like orders or tactics. he just heads straight for wherever the fight is heaviest, pouring fire into the enemy, and hoping there's someone left standing to give him a good fight when he gets there.

Alt Mode

Warpath is an H style ground tank. The color scheme is his familiar rust red. You will also find silver and unpainted PVC in various spots. The left front tread section has "ZOW-333" (Zowie) scripted on it, while the right front tread sections has "K4-90W" (Kapow) in writing. This is in reference to his G1 vocabulary, of course. Both sides of his rear tread sections have an Autobot insignia embossed on them.

As if the turret barrel wasn't enough, Warpart also has a launchable missile on the right side of the turret as well as a 4-missile battery on the left. These are permanently pinned to the turret. The good news is that not only does the turret spin a full 360 degrees, the main barrel can also tilt 45 degrees upwards.

Alt Mode Summary: The first tank in a long time I'm excited about.

Alt Mode Specs

Length:4.13in/104.9mm
Width:3.13in/79.5mm
Height:2in/50.8mm
Wheels:4, molded into tread
Detailed cockpit:N/A

Transformation

Warpath's transformation is alot like his original G1 minibot, albeit more sophisticated. One neat feature is that as you push in the main barrel, his head will pop up.

Robot Mode

Warpath's robot mode is nothing short of brilliant. His G1 look is preserved flawlessly, if you don't count the two new shoulder mounted weapons. While the head scuplt is nice, it offers no piping. A pity, since the eyes look jeweled and very dark.

The launchable missile now sits on his right shoulder and can be fired at will. Though Warpath has no hand weapon, both fists are ported to accept anyone's weapon. Like he needs one.

Articulation

Feet:Rivet pin, 30 degrees bend.
Knees:Rivet pin, 90 degrees bend.
Hips:Ball joint, 180 degrees bend and 45 degrees spread. Slide tab below hips for unlimited leg rotation.
Waist:Stationary
Shoulders:Pinned w/additional screw hinge, unlimited rotation and 90 degrees spread.
Elbows:Screw hinge, 90 degrees bend. Slide tab above elbow for unlimited forearm rotation.
Hands:Stationary (technical)
Head:Pinned for unlimited rotation.

The only thing missing here is waist articulation. But there's enough flexibility with the rest of the joints to work around it.

Robot Mode Summary:Nostalgic goodness combined with modern know-how.

Robot Mode Specs

Height:5.25in/133.4mm
Width:3in/76.2mm
Depth:3in/76.2mm
Supplied accessories: (1) Launchable missile

Value

The only real concern for this figure is with the painted treads. Run him around some rough surfaces in alt mode enough and you'll wear that paint right off.

Summary

Of the three figures this wave brought forth, Warpath is a definite hit. He shows just how far Hasbro and Takara have come with engineering Deluxe class figures. If it means scouring surplus discount chain stores, do it. To not get this figure would truly be missing something.

Final Verdict:

Class:Deluxe

MSRP:$12

Warpath and Wheeljack are back up for preorder at hasbrotoyshop today. While the repaints are inevitable, (bet the farm on Tomahawk as Whirl) I also think that some new figures are still coming in this line. if you read the tea leaves about what names they have in their trademark arsenal, A Trailb... read more

Its a shame Generations/RTS are either being done away or condensed to a few pegs for the movie line... Most people are not going to get a chance to own some of these must have figures...

Geez.....when I picked up my Warpath (and Wheeljack) at Walmart yesterday, they had all these figures on the shelf.. I was so excited to see them all I actually was tempted to grab one of each, but remembered I already had Kup, TC, and Scourge at home. Hasbro's distribution really sucked with... read more

Great review. I hope mine comes in along with Generations/RTS Wheeljack, Scourge, Kup and Thundercracker who I ordered almost three months ago from Epic Heroes. Getting tired of the wait.

I will tear down the columns of Heaven itself to get this figure, but I won't pay ebay prices. Not with him showing up everywhere.

I picked up Warpath and Wheeljack today at Walmart. They had about four Warpaths/Wheeljacks each along with like 8 Thundercrackers. I didn't grab TC cause I already got him, but damn I was surprised to see these guys finally show u on shelves. Oh yeah, Warpath is AWESOME!

I got mine today at a Walmart in LaCrosse, WI. First time I'd seen this wave on the shelves. It really is a spectacular figure. If this is the end of the line for Generations, they went out in a heck of a high note.

There have been sightings of these guys at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, to answer Middlebuzz's question Unfortunately, I can't help that the Bayverse makes it harder for Hasbro to put out a quality figure. I found these at a Walmart and it was my FIRST time ever seeing them on a shelf anywhere, ... read more

This is a great figure. My only thing is I wish he was a normal tank in alt mode rather than the 4 track tank, but he is great. Blitz, did you find these in the normal retail store or did you pick them up at a 3rd party retailer like TJ Maxx..etc? It a shame that these really good figures are bein... read more
