The latest creation from Mastermind Creations is R-08 Azalea! Figure stands 14cm (5.5") tall and changes from futuristic car to robot and back. Note: Video is of a prototype and final colors will be closer to the rendering but may vary.
"Achieves The Impossible"
How the heck can a toy this small, with so many tiny joints, feel this sturdy? My biggest worry about getting this toy was worrying that I'd break her. That worry is gone. This plastic is AMAZING. Even with some of the more nerve-wracking parts of her transformation (in particular, looping her head through her backpack), I haven't seen or felt any stress on the plastic.
Poseability is off the charts, even with her rather enormous backpack. Plus I like how the plethora of joints and pegs means you have a lot of choices for you you want the alt mode to look. Though the downside to this is how this means it's really hard to get the back end perfectly symmetrical.
The only part I feel *might* break are the hinges on the swords. Would have liked those a little stronger. But I love how many places you can stick the swords and guns on in both modes, and I love the clever little pink stand that either gives stability to any pose in robot mode, or makes the vehicle look like it's hovering.
This toy is full of good ideas and good engineering.
"Great Figure, pretty great transformer"
I like this figure a lot, but I have to give it 4 stars just because the transformation seems needlessly fiddly. I love a complex transformation, but this one seems a bit more trying than it needed to be.
That said, the alt mode is a little small, but the bot mode is awesome. These figures have amazing posability and can really be put in some neat action stances, aided by the stand from the alt mode. Definitely a great value for the cost, and definitely great figures.
While it was a little smaller than I thought, it is a must have for any true Transformers collector. A perfect rendition of one of my favorite G1 Transformers!
"the perfect arcee"
Great figure love how fun the transformation is once you get it down
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
This is one super happy fun toy. Poseability is redonculous. She has a fiddly transformation the first time, but it's easy after that. Couldn't be happier. Bravo, MMC.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
