Depth Charge - Beast Wars - Figure

Depth Charge is one of the most impressive Beast Wars toys to date and by far the best of the Ultra series.

Beast Mode
His tale is a tragic one. Depth Charge was security for Colony Omnicron while Rampage (then known only as "X") was imprisoned there. Unfortunately, Rampage escaped, leveling the colony and destroying everyone except Depth Charge. The Maximal then spent the rest of his days hunting down "Protoform X" until he wound up in the middle of the Beast Wars. He never really joined the other Maximals on a regular basis, insisting that he hunt Rampage on his own and without interference from the others. Depth Charge finally did get his revenge, during the Beast Wars episode "Nemesis Part 1", but at the cost of his own life.

But enough about that, let's get to the toy!

Robot Mode
Depth Charge is pleasant to look at, for me at any rate. His color scheme is subtle, yet rich and detailed. In robot mode, he stands a tall 7 inches or 10 if you include the tops of his fins. By pulling the trigger, cleverly disguised as a fin, on his back you can fire several yellow discs from his chest (or mouth in beast mode). These "power pizzas" as Cheetor refers to them, fire a fairly long distance. Thankfully, since they are round, they don't hurt much if they hit you.

Transformation
His manta ray form is very nice and does an excellent job of hiding the robot parts. With a wingspan of about 14 inches, he is the widest Beast Warrior. The spacecraft mode resembles his ship that he flew in the Beast Wars episode "Deep Metal". There's not much difference between the beast and ship modes though. You basically straighten out the engines underneath and position the wings so the face flat to the sides.

Overall
I recommend Depth Charge. He's a wonderful toy with a unique beast form and a great transformation. Add to the fact that he's a badass and you've got a killer toy!
