Review: Transformers Reveal the Shield Strafe Figure

Fanboys are always looking for homages and tributes to the Autobots and Decepticons they grew up with. In response, Hasbro gives us different attempts to do such. Sometimes, they hit a line drive. Other times, they fall off the mark. This review looks at Transformers Reveal the Shield Strafe, which borrows a mold from the previous movie line. Can a Bayverse figure really make a good G1 tribute? Jump to the review and find out!

@Breaker: yeah, Scattershot may not fit that mold, I was just thinking if that mold got repainted as an Autobot in Technobot colors that could be a cool pair up. And Scattershot fits thy mild better than the other technobots do.

You mean Skystalker That would be a terrible mold to use as Scattershot.But I do love that mold, I'd probably buy up any repaints they make of it.Hey Blitz! Wasn't there suppose to be an Autobot insignia being formed by the entire top of the jet mode or something (like by the deco I mean).I had to look again. The wings sort of form the Autobot insignia if you look hard enough.

If they were to repaint Mindwipe's scout class partner as scattershot, it might help.It looks ok, but I agree he's definitely a pass at full price. At clearance though....

Forgot about Dreadwing only because he was a Japanese exclusive

I give him an 8 out of 10 only because they didn't put a new head on him. Though I love the Mindwipe mold , and Strafe is the 3rd in the uses of the mold. Mindwipe was first, then Dreadwing, and now Strafe.Honestly if you want a G1 homage proper then hope a 3rd Party does it. But over all Strafe looks great.

One of the more pathetic repaints of a Transformer into something it's not.
