It's time for another PCC review, this time we look at the beginning of the Decepticons dominance of the PCC line.
Sledge transforms from a “rock wheel trencher construction vehicle” to a robot and a torso.
He is mostly (almost G2 constructicon) yellow, black and some purple. Oh and he's a Decepticon.
In his Rock wheel trencher mode he has an articulated scoop arm and a spinning trencher wheel. All four of his PCC pegs are visible in this mode. Two of them help hold the tracks on to the main body so at least they serve a purpose. He has two Power-Linx pegs, one on his scoop, (which works perfectly with Throttler) and one on his cab, good for weapon mounts. Sledges alt mode really doesn't feel like a real vehicle, t feels more like a folded up robot which makes it's flaws even worse, you can even see his torso mode head from the top, it really is the worst of all of his modes. I'm not going to say much more on it because of how poor it is.
His PCC pegs in his legs end up being used as heels, without them he'd fall over all the time, visible but useful. His shoulder pegs are fully on view, with no purpose served.
Throttler is one of the more interesting Mini-Cons from the PCC line. He transforms from a robot, to a drill to armour. He's a giant chunk of clear purple plastic and he's kind of awesome!
As a robot he has a decent amount of detail sculpted on him, nothing to special though, his face is picked out in silver paint and his head is painted black. Throttler has a lot of articulation but this is probably more to do with how he transforms than anything else.
It's a shame they never reused Throttler for the later PCC's it would have been nice to twin drill stuff with them.
OK that's us done for another week. Next week we start in on the Wave 2 5 packs and we start with, to be honest, one of the worst sets in the entire line. Brace yourself for the pain, it's Double-Clutch and the Rallybots.
He sometimes takes epic trips to Newcastle, and tells tales of these sagas often.
When not watching people in spandex fight each other he paints miniatures, go HERE to take a look.
