Here's an obscure character review!
I found Gusher among the used Transformers at my local comic shop. He comes from a micromaster line I knew nothing about until the MTMTE series from Dreamwave came out. I bought him very cheaply and think he's a neat little figure.
Being a Micromaster Combiner, Gusher is actually the back half of a vehicle, as you can see from the link below. By himself, he appears to be a predominantly orange construction digger type vehicle. The fenders are partially black and the the digger arm is teal. Maybe he's a Miami Dolphins fan, given his color scheme!
Transformation is very simple, like most Micromasters. The cab rotates down halfway to form the lower legs and feet, and the arms rotate up at the side. Stand him up and he's done. Nothing to it.
He's not much more than an inch and a half tall. More teal is added in the torso and head, and the face is gold. It's a nice little robot mode, though with only two points of articulation at the shoulders, and the knees, which are one solid piece. You won't get much in the way of dynamic posing here!
Gusher is a neat little Micromaster, who thanks to MTMTE has a personality at last! His robot mode has some nice colors, and despite being the back half of a vehicle, he looks fine on his own.
