    Kinda wonder why they didn't call him Mixmaster? Did Hasbro loose the copywrite?

    No, it's because they don't want to have two Mixmasters that are similar that may be on the shelves at the same time. hasbro has the trademark for Mixmaster, for Animated Mixmaster.

    The mold is okay, not a great mold but still above average, I'd say. I do like the colors on Heavy Load here, I like how they introduced a third color - what was orange on Quickmix is now yellow and green. Although I think maybe the uniform orange and yellow on Quickmix works better overall. I like how he's got more paint applications too although it is missing two that is on Quickmix that I would have liked on Heavy Load too - the red on the side of the cab area of Quickmix is unpainted and the paint Quickmix has on the wheels is unpainted too.

    In terms of colors, both Heavy Load and Quickmix have things that I like and that I am slightly disappointed by. I doubt I will get Heavy Load because I already own Quickmix but whoever doesn't have either won't go wrong with either one.

    From my what I've learned off my quickmix figure I think you still have him mistransformed. The shoulders should go down as you push the legs in. This also makes heavy duty about a head taller than he is your pics.

    Looks great though. I thought he'd be more yellow than orange. But the accent between toxic sludge green and atomic waste green is so cool its practically g2. Hmm it does have tinted red windows like many g2 figures.

    I was initially going to pass on this guy because he was just a repaint, now I'm glad I didn't.
    Like I said in the Blaster thread, I got a fairly decent deal for both Universe Blaster and Universe Heavy Load from TF Club for only $36 so I went ahead with it.

    Heavy Load is pretty cool, not the greatest mold but definitely cool. Looks good in both modes and comes with a cool min-con as well.

    Powerglide is like a giant in comparison to Galvatron.. he's so tiny, look at the originals, Powerglide is a minibot and Galvatron is almost tallest as Metroplex :lol

    Not a bad repaint but I'd rather see it in green/purple Constructicon color.
