Jolt - Movie - Figure

Walmart has been given access to 4 Cybertron repaints for their own movie exclusive subline. In this subline, there are 2 Autobots and 2 Decepticons. This review will look at one of the Decepticons, known as Jolt. Jolt is a rookie to the Decepticons who serves as a whipping post for Barricade and his lackey Frenzy.

Alt Mode

Jolt borrows his mold from Cybertron Crosswise, who has already lent his mold to Smokescreen. The alt mode resembles the Bugatti Veyron very closely. The color scheme is a blend of purple and silver. It actually goes pretty well with this mold. The rear spoiler doubles as a missile launcher.

Jolt's cyber key is molded after the Unicron key from Cybertron and features the Decepticon insignia. Inserting the key into the rear end reveals a pair of missile batteries from the rear deck.

Transforming Jolt can be somewhat of a pain. The easiest method is to pop the quarterpanels from him and reattach them once in robot mode. The arms are also a bit cumbersome to get into their right position, especially when going back to Alt mode.

Alt Mode

Jolt retains his color scheme in robot mode with no new colors added. The rear spoiler becomes his hand weapon. Also, the roof of the alt mode makes an impromptu shield for his left arm. As with the others, Jolt's head sculpt is unaltered from the Cybertron figure.

Points of articulation are as follows. Feet: Dual pin hinge, 90 degrees of combined usable rotation. Knees: Ball joint, 90 degree bend with unlimited thigh rotation. Hips: Ball joint, 135 degree bend with 90 degree spread. Waist: Stationary. Shoulders: Ball joint, unlimited rotation with 90 degree wingspan. Elbows: Ball joint, 90 degree bend with unlimited forearm rotation. Head: pinned with pin hinge at neck, unlimited rotation and 60 degrees tilt. The hinging of the feet make this figure an outstanding poser.

The cyber key works in the same fashion in robot mode. The missile batteries pop up on each shoulder. Although somewhat tedious to transform between each mold, Jolt is nonetheless an excellent mold and the color scheme is different enough to consider in the collection. Although having a three variations of the same mold might be a bit much for some, especially considering that BotCon will be offering this mold AGAIN come April.

This mold has always seemed very RID to me... and I loved him as smokescreen.

Yeah, I can't bring myself to like the robot mode. I like some aspects of it, especially the shield, but I just don't like the way the arms and legs look. They look okay in a standing pose, but any action pose and they just look off to me.

i really want to love this mold. the car mode is perfect, the color scheme is great. the robot mode is even decent, but the transformation of the arms just makes me despise this mold.

My eyes, they burn. :07laugh Great mold and IMO this would have been a better evil Jazz for the botcon set. He'd fit right in with all of those miss match coloured bots.

Huh. He does look that way, which is kinda cool...

Love 'im...back when Crosswise was released, I spent many a sleepless night pondering what good repaints would be for my TFs, and this was one of them. Sometimes the universe does work in mysterious ways after all. Thank you, God.
