Tap-Out - 2002 BotCon Exclusive - Figure

A grizzled survivor of the grease pits of Polyhex, Tap-Out is the capable but over-impulsive bodyguard of Glyph in Wreckers #2. This dimunitive powerhouse came as the pre-registration exclusive for Botcon 2002.

Vehicle Mode
A redeco of the G1 Cliffjumper keychain that was released in 2001, Tap-Out is a cuteseyfied Porsche 924 Turbo that measures a mere 5 cm(2") long. His main colour is a nice sparkly metallic green, as well as metallic grey windows, chrome hubcaps, and rubber tires. Autobot stickers are lopsidedly plastered on his roof and rear. A black ring on his rear bumper allows you to attach Tap-Out to the metal chain that came with the toy. I've decided not to use him as a keychain, however, since I don't want him to get dinged up by coins or whatever else happens to be in my pocket.

If you can't figure this one out, something's wrong. The Porsche's front end slides out to become the robot legs, the arms slide out from the sides, and the rear hatch opens to reveal the head.

Robot Mode
Tap-Out comes in at slightly under 8 cm(3.1") tall, making him a less than intimidating bodyguard for your shelf, dresser, or dashboard. Still mostly metallic green and grey except for his face, which is silver. His arms swivel at the shoulders and have moulded fists. Also, his feet can lower and his head can tilt down to make him ashamed or shy.

Susp Sez: Although I wasn't too keen at first on Tap-Out, I must admit that he's grown on me since Botcon 2002. Since my TF collection is almost devoid of G1 items, it's refreshing in a way to own this guy and Glyph. He's cute, he's got nice colours, and a detailed bio in the BC2002 program guide.
