SS-92 TF5 The Last Knight Crosshairs

“Love that guy. Goosebumps every time.”

Next up on the reveals today we debuted the all new Crosshairs! TF5 Crosshairs is based on a repurposed design from AOE that saw modifications to the vehicle mode. The licensed C7 Corvette Stingray saw minor body modifications to mimic some of the wider flared details of a Z06, while introducing a new spoiler, canards and an all new livery.

Talk about an impossible design, a lot of the new characters introduced in Age of Extinction didn’t take transformation into consideration when hiding car parts amongst the robot forms. To make matters worse, they introduced a figure wearing a trench coat, turning car parts into pliable clothing.

Yuki Hisashi had a hell of an undertaking in trying to bring this character to life, but I think he succeeded marvelously. This figure is a massive improvement from his premier edition release, and does a great job of modernizing the articulation, and introducing an articulated trench coat flaps to the front of the figure.

Crosshairs includes his iconic submachine guns which can be stowed in his door panels, along with his jetpack that can be found on the upper back. Unfortunately Crosshairs does have a rather sizable kibble on his back due to the entire vehicle form needing to disappear from the robot design.

What are your thoughts on this guy? Does he hit his mark, or miss the target?

Robot Turns

The robot mode for this character was always going to be a difficult design challenge due to the vehicle parts vanishing during transformation in the film. Yuki did an incredible job of migrating the entire vehicle chassis to the back of the character, to help hide it behind the trench coat.

The outer corners of the hood make up the front of the coat, and are able to articulate with the figure, as well as being able to open up while in more dynamic poses. Its a bit rear heavy, but it is a very fun figure to pose out with his submachine guns. I’m excited to share some in hand photos of what this figure is capable of.



Vehicle Turns

Crosshairs vehicle mode is a licensed 2014 Corvette Stingray, that saw some moderate modification from its debut in AOE. The vehicle mode is primarily where we saw any medications for the character between films, and there was an attempt at “Z06ing” the vehicle chassis.

There is also a welcome livery change between the two films, with a use of matte black stripes and paneling to split up some of the reflective surfaces.
