Thrust Smallest TF - G1 - Figure

Apart form Starscream, Thrust was (In my opinion the coolest of the seeker jets) From the deep maroon paint job to the fanned wings, he was in my humble opinion one of the coolest Decepticons in the line. Recently my Girlfriend bought me a box of 12 worlds Smallest Transformers including Thrust, which is why I’ve decided to do a quick review.

First impressions: as with all the WS transformers it’s kind of odd to see a minicon sized classic figure, and in this case doubly so as he comes with an array of equipment, Most specifically a pair of wings, seeker missiles and hands. In many ways I’m reminded of the minicons with these figures (and the micromasters as well) detail wise, thrust is more detailed than your average minicon, and he does for all intents and purposes look like a mini thrust. (Now if only they would do Dirge and Ramjet!)

Transformation: Just like it’s larger version transformation is a simple matter of flipping the wings down, popping the arms out from the back part of the cockpit, and moving the rest of the cockpit, through the hole left by the arm’s absence. Then just add the hands and take the missiles from the wings and put them on the arms. Again, if you’ve transformed any of the G1 seeker jet models WS Thrust will be a piece of cake, the only real difference is that flexible pivot between the leg and the torso is now firmly part of the leg, however the legs now can pivot on their own (and are removable)

Drawbacks: the only real drawback to think of comes in their fragility. The original G-1 Takara molds were never meant to stand up to kids in the US or their play habits, (that was pretty well proven and is one reason the newer figures have gone to more flexible plastic and a lot of ball and socket joints!) and smaller versions can be more fragile, on first transformation his nosecone popped off and after a second of wrestling with it I got it back together and an still concerned about it falling off again. Also of course with the smaller figs come smaller accessories, if you were ever frustrated about losing a seeker jet fist as a kid just imagine losing one that is 1/5th the scale of the original.

Final Verdict: Thrust like many of the Worlds Smallest Transformers is a damn cool figure, and while he may not be quite the same as the original ones the price is more than right and they are a welcome addition to any transfan’s collection.
