I got Drag Strip from Hong Kong last week, he arrived in the post at the same time as the Amazon.co.jp exclusive leader Optimus Prime, so if I seem downbeat about this figure it's because he's been outshone somewhat by the black leader Prime. Drag Strip is quite frankly a mediocre figure, he doesn't have a joint that isn't used for transformation which limits his poses. His arms are the most limited, due to the lack of an elbow swivel, but the legs have 4-way articulation at the hips, have thigh swivels, and bend at the knee. Drag Strip's head articulation is limited by the car kibble on the back of his head. His "blades" attach to the back of the arms with c-clips. Master Disaster is semi-transparent hinting that he may be a hologram. The transformation is pretty simple, the only thing you've got to watch for is the steering wheel falling off and disappearing. The car mode is also a mixed bag. Master Disaster doesn't go into his seat easily, he ends up pushing the purple shield down with his legs as you fight to wedge him into the car, and he appears over-sized in relation to the car. The tyres have "XS PAOLINOS" on them, whatever that means. The yellow paint apps do not really go with the orange plastic in my opinion. The purple is metallic which is quite nice. The "weapon mode" is a complete joke, I can't imagine anybody buying this for the weapon mode unlike most of the other HA basics. It's just the car mode with the rear fin folded a bit, the purple shield pieces folded out, and a 5mm post folded out from one of Drag Strip's upper arms. Is it a gun? If it is, it would look like a robot holding a car not a gun. Is it a shield? A not very good shield, since there's a hole right in the middle of it. So in summary, meh.
