Steamhammer of course...
He is molded in a oh so familiar bright green but he lacks the purple he needs to make him 100% Constructicon.
As a robot Steamhammer has one major flaw. He has a GIANT ass plow on his back, it over balances him and you have to fiddle with him to get a decent standing pose. There isn't many other problems in this mode, as is the standard with the commander figure he has some nicely sculpted detail. He lacks light piping (Boooo!) but he has a nicely sculpted face with some beady red eyes. He has some facial detail picked out in silver paint which looks good as well.
At some point my Steamhammer got scratched on his head and some dirt got in there but I like it. He's a Constructicon! He should be dirty!
Steamhammer is “variable” on his visable PCC peg syndrome. The legs pegs can't hide, wont hide but they make excellent heels which he desperatly needs. The other pegs are attacthed to the plow and you can tuck them away or you can leave them on display. I'll post pictures of both if I remember to take both of the photos....
He's got some cruel looking blades attached to his wrists though, I like having some inbuilt melee weapons on a commander figure, it makes a nice change.
There's not a lot more to say about the vehicle mode, let's go on to the torso.
Mobine makes the already chunky shoulders even bulkier, the way the shoulder pegs are mounted paired with how mobine is sculpted means the shoulders don't sit as flush as they do with some torsos but it's not a massive problem. The connecting pegs for Mobines missile carrier mode bash into the back treads but you can easily move those out of the way, yeah this pairing looks good!
Shall we talk about the Constructicon drones?
I love how the thumb is swappable so you can use the arm for right or left. The only way this would be better is if the other arm had a hand to!
As an arm it does several good thing, including the unique ability to lock itself into arm mode while unpegged. While that's not useful in the most part it's great when you're trying to review it! It's a little longer than the other arm which is it's only real problem. Hey guess what! SECOND HAND! WITH THUMB! Just like the other one it's swappable. What's weird is that this hand has 4 fingers and the other hand has only 3.
Well lets wrap this review up, This set is great and is a fine example of what the PCC line could've been, the United EX version is also a fine example of how colour matching your Drones and Commander REALY works.
So that's this weeks review all done. Next week.... Oh next week..... We talk about Dinobots.
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.
