Spittor II - Beast Wars - Figure

Transmetal II Spittor

Series: Beast Wars (1998)
Size: Basic (circa 3 to 4 in)
Clan: Predacons
Function: Special Forces: Amphibious Warrior
Stat Average: 6.55

First Impressions
On the ‘card’ Spittor is doing that thing that all frogs do. He’s trying to eat a fly. He’s a frog, after all. But this isn’t Kermit by any means. It’s all Predacon. A couple of hidden twist ties. The back has stats, instructions, and the Transmetal II line of Megas, Deluxes, and the ultras. (Btw, that twist tie is a beast)

Beast Mode
Flexible, though its mainly his legs. He’s a frog. I’m not particularly partial to frogs, but I’d say he’s a convincing one. His tongue looks kind of like he’s smoking a pipe. He also has teeth. This adds to his ‘evilness’ but it isn’t very cohesive with the frog theme. He can do a ‘I’m not worthy pose’ or can stand on his head (if you remove the tongue). He also has those frog poses down. The coloration warns of poison and adds to the ‘evil’ image. Blue and purple don’t make a good guy (Ok, sorry Depth Charge), especially with the neon green. The claw in his back can extend and make him look like the mutant frog he is by giving the impression of another leg. Spark is in his mouth.

Transformation
Separate the back and the head from the lower body, twist them around, push the head and the back up a little bit. Move the robot head to where it can be seen. Twist the hips around, rotate the back onto the platform. Lower the head and pack so they form shoulder pads. Raise the claw, put the mace in his hand and there he is.

Robot Mode
Little ‘body’ to speak of, most of his height is in his limbs. The head peers forward menacingly. The mace works well with the hands, so that’s good. The claw seems a bit useless up there. Still Spittor has some fighter characteristics. His glare, his weapon, and his armor seem to suggest a hand to hand combatant. He might be stealthy enough to pull that off.

Purchasing Advice
Spittor is a non-show Transmetal II. His price varies, then, by seller on Ebay. For those who want him, I believe he has been recolored as a RID Predacon (like Cybershark) and might be available in stores.

The Final Word
I recommend Spittor to the completist. For most collectors, I recommend getting the RID recolor, if the price is right. Or explore Ebay, there just might be a good deal on him.
