Quote: "Strike hard, strike straight."
SMOKESCREEN is a big, strong warrior that moves with slow deliberation and packs a lot of power. He makes every move count in battle. He doesn't waste time on fancy fighting styles - he plows in with all his might - fists and weapons swinging with full force. SMOKESCREEN channels all his energy and skills into the fight and tries to predict what the DECEPTICONS will do next. Can the strength and insight of SMOKESCREEN help the AUTOBOTS win the battle to claim the MINI-CONS?
Smokescreen is a very unique toy. His primary colors are orange gray/black and blue. His main gimmick is his boom arm, which, when Liftor (Smokescreen's Mini-Con) is attached and pushed forward, extends quite a bit. Then a missile laucher flips out finishing the 10 inch missile launcher crane. Also, a hooked rope sits on the back ( or chest in robot mode) of Smokecreen's vehicle mode and, if the switch is flipped on, if extended can pull back quickly when the car drives forward. His robot mode is quite wide and not very tall, making him look quite odd- yet it fits this particular transformer perfectly.
His vehicle mode is a crane car with a roped hook on the back. Transformation to robot mode is simple- flip the front of the car down, flip the legs around and lower the feet. Swing the arms into position andflip the crane around, exposing the robot head. Smokescreen has a odd patch on him that looks like a spark container to me- you'll have to see it for yourself. It bears an Autobot symbol on it and is located on the left shoulder of Smokescreen's robot mode.
Liftor, Smokecsreen's Mini-Con is a fork-lift car. He is mostly blue and black with a touch of orange- basically Smokecreen with...less orange. Simply flip the orange cone back, flip open the arms, fold down the legs and spit the fork-lift in two to transform Liftor form vehicle to robot mode in an instant. He is a neat Mini-Con, one of the best in my opinion.
I hope my review has been helpful to you. I am an 11 year old dedicated transfan, who has quite a few transformers- Including a large collection of G1 from my big brother. I have bought many transformers from every series in the U.S. ( G1 and G2, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise and Armada )and have 2 Japanese exclusive toys.( Choro-Q Megatron and Beast Wars 2 Galvatron) I am thankful that I am able to make other Transfans happy by lending them my opinion of different figures and enjoyed writing the figure very much.
