Heavyload - RiD - Figure

HEAVYLOAD (Insert Cape Thing joke here)

Vehicle Mode
Heavyload is a quarry dump truck, the type which is usually several stories high and wide enough to take up three lanes on an interstate. Measuring 9.5 cm(3.7") long, Heavyload is light and dark yellow with black and silver wheels, blue headlights, red tail lights, assorted silver parts, and a big Autobot symbol on the front of his bed. This dump truck holds together like a brick and rolls quite nicely on hardwood floor or carpet. Heavyload's dumping bed can rise up in order to unload whatever cargo it happened to be carrying.

Attack Mode
Now this one is cool. Rotate the dumping bed and the cab 180 degrees and press down on the Autobot symbol to reveal a set of chomping jaws lined with humongous teeth. *This* guy should have been named Grimlock, ladies and gents. Memo to Sky-Byte: That ain't a set o' teeth, mate; this 'ERE'S a set o' teeth!

Transformation
Pretty straightforward. The rear of the dump truck extends to become the robot legs, the front part opens up to become the arms, and the robot head flips out of the cockpit.

Robot Mode
Heavyload stands 13 cm(5") tall as a robot. The first thing you notice about him is his blockiness: he's much squatter and more massively built than Grimlock or the three Autobot brothers. But don't let his appearance fool you. Heavyload's got articulation at the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and feet. He holds together just fine, and his robot form is devoid of vehicle kibble, yay! His head is yellow with a silver face, a red visor, and a lopsided grin. He's up to something, he is. His chomping dump bed can either attach to his back or be held in either fist. While other fans have expressed dislike for this weapon, I rather like it. Chomp. Chomp. Pac-Man, anyone?

Overall
Heavyload is my favourite of the Build Team. Good dump truck mode, blocky but poseable robot mode, neat weapon. Chomp.
