Ok, I just picked this toy up from Target greatland (last one, sorry!), and decided to write this review! Where will I begin...
Bulldozer Mode - This is a very nice model, and has gimmicks to boot! Reminiscent of the Decepticon Constructicons (G1), it is a light shade of green, with purple highlights and silver/black accents, and a touch of dark red. It has a pair of treads (which actually move instead of that old wheel-on-the-tread thing)with grey inner tread. Its gimmicks include booming sounds when it roles, and a cab which opens and makes a bunch of strange noises when you stick in the little mini-con figure. There are two mini-con ports (dead) on the treads.
Transformation - Just pull the scoop apart, pull on the treads, push 'em up, twist, rotate, pull and push until it looks like the box(see the actual instructions for this to make sense).
Robot mode - I call this guy the amazing brick. A twenty dollar brick. For twenty bucks, he had better be pretty darned amazing! Ok, first of all, the looks. Scavenger isn't very pretty, in fact, he looks more like a Decepticon soldier than an Autobot general! Once again, he is mainly light green, with more black, and a red Autobot symbol on his chest. He has grey accents, and big, purple fingers. his arms aren’t all that possible, he can bend at the hips, and has a walking feature. His gimmicks include two dead powerlinx on his arms, one live one on his hip that fires a dark red missile. He also has a walking feature (aforementioned) in which you push him and his "legs" move up and down and make that darned stomping noise again!
Rollbar - This mini-con is one of the greats! It is a white buggy-type vehicle, and has details! This guy is worth 20 bucks! (not really though) he turns into a small robot with no forearms, but has nice possibility in his legs. Mostly grey in robot mode.
Overall - Scavenger is a decent toy, not much play value, but he well sure warm up your shelf! Buy him now. Go. NOW. BUY HIM!!!
