Despite the unnecessary modifications Hasbro made, this is a great toy. Whether you have Hasbro's or Takara's version, you should like this version of Optimus Prime. The truck mode is slightly disjointed, mainly because the focus was clearly on the robot

The vehicle colours used may not be as realistic as previous Binaltech toys, but they look so good I don't care. Both modes look great, and while there are some minor robot mode flaws, this is still a great toy. The retooling is significant enough that I'

The name is down right awful - I got this toy as Drag Strip, basically. Decepticharge is the weakest G1 tribute in the line so far, which will reduce his appeal for a lot of fans. There are enough flaws to recommend Windcharger instead.

The vehicle mode is slightly flawed, a shame since it's my favourite model of car in Binaltech to date. The robot mode is both aesthetically appealing and a great effort at turning a sports car into a believable Grimlock. This is how an alt mode change sh

Hound is more ambitious that the Binaltech toys that preceded him, and he combination of a very good modern Jeep Wrangler with a robot mode that just screams Hound is fantastic.

A great vehicle, as is the norm for Binaltech. The robot mode is a great upgrade of the Omnibot - I really like the fact they've gone for a somewhat obscure yet classic G1 character - and done a great job. Hasbro's Windcharger is not as good.

Already a great mould with two great modes, and it's been reused very well here. The translation to Ravage is well done. While the black hides some of the details which come out better on Tracks, the shadowy look suits the character.
