So here in Australia we skipped Wave 4 and have gone straight into Wave 5, which is hitting shelves next to the other AOE stuff. All in all, I think this is probably the weakest wave we've gotten. Wave 4 was awesome in heaps of ways and this one feels like a big downgrade. I love the obsolete Kreons, but this has so many I had to look up most of them and there are just too many brown and dark red Kreons for a single set. For those after them, here's the codes on the packets: 45- Skrapnel 46- Fangwolf 47- Misfire 48- Trypticon 49- Mindswipe 50- Nightbeat 51- Highbrow 52- Jarugar 53- Jetwash 54- Wingspan Hawk 55- Torosaur 56- Silversnout That said, lets check them out! First up is the very originally named Wingspan Hawk! I've looked into it, but I really can't work out who he's supposed to be. He doesn't appear to match any of the AOE combiners either. He's a Decepticon. Maybe someone can help me out? EDIT: Thanks, PopCulturePooka, he's based on G1 Wingspan! His alt-mode is apparently a hawk, but it doesn't really look like much of anything. The equally inspired named Fangwolf comes next. He is based on Cybertron Snarl! He even retains Snarl's Wolf Head hand! Awesome. He possibly also doubles as the fifth member of AOE Combiner Lazerbolt. He pulls off the wolf look a lot more successfully then Wingspan Hawk pulls off a hawk. Silversnout looks pretty fierce. Like Wingspan, I'm not really sure where he's supposed to fit in, although possibly he's supposed to match AOE combiner Grimstone? He's got a tail, so that's pretty cute. He transforms into a dinosaur type thing. Possibly a Stegosaurus considering the spikes? I really love the new dinosaur parts. Jetwash is, obviously based on G1 Jetfire! I wouldn't be able to tell you why he's "Jetwash" here though, seems a rather bizarre name change. I would've preferred a less spiky helmet, but this works too. He turns into a gun-packing jet! The Scavenger Misfire is for whatever reason an Autobot in Kre-O instead of a Decepticon. Talk about... A misfire. He's still unmistakably G1 Misfire though, I'm disappointed by the mix up though. They did pretty well emulating his G1 Jet mode as best as they could. Mindswipe is obviously G1 Mindwipe! He looks really awesome, definitely one of my favourites in the set. He turns into a bat, although the instructions claim its a "Dino Mode". Definitely one of the better looking animal Kre-Os. Here's Nightbeat. You'd be forgiven to think this is supposed to be G1 Nightbeat, but for whatever reason its actually G1 Punch. Not really sure where that mix-up came from. Either way, he looks good and its refreshing to see a Yellow and Blue character in the sea of dull colours of this wave. I think cars are the most successful alt-mode for Microchangers. They always look petty good. A pretty darn cool addition is Trypticon! For the first time ever, he now has a robot mode. The T-Rex head does not like staying upright like that, it pops off constantly. Pretty ignorable though because... ... The T-Rex mode is ridiculously adorable! This is definitely the mode I'm keeping my Trypticon in. The chest design really solidifies this version as WFC Trypticon. EDIT: Thanks to XenoTK, it seems I was completely wrong about my WFC claim, the chest is spot on to Classics Trypticon! This guy is a dual homage between G1 and Classics! I love it! Jarugar is probably the coolest homage in the set. He's based on the Breastforce G1 Jallguar! I really love those sorts of obsolete homages in Kre-O. His alt-mode is an off-roader and it looks pretty good. Highbrow is based on G1 Highbrow, of course. Just like Misfire, they've screwed up his allegiance! He's an Autobot (and the instructions depict him as such) but his chest has a Decepticon logo! Seems MTMTE minor characters aren't faring too well allegiance-wise. Luckily, the chest piece mostly covers up the mishap. Unfortunately you can still see the Decepticon symbol if you look through the circle on the chest piece. Lame. His alt-mode is a twin-rotor helicopter, similar to his G1 self. Torosaur has a vicious looking robot mode. He appears to be the fifth member of the original AOE combiner Volcanicon. He turns into a... Thing. Possibly a dinosaur? The instructions just say "Beast Mode". Last but not least is Skrapnel, based on G1 Shrapnel! Finally the Insecticons are complete! Unfortunately, they've colored him to match the Insect combiner team of AOE original combiner Obsidian, so he doesn't match color-wise to his brethren. He still is unmistakably Shrapnel though and he even comes with Megatron in alt mode! Awesome! EDIT: As XenoTK pointed out, the colors match the G1 Zaptrap redeco of Shrapnel too! He turns into a Stag Beetle, as usual! So all in all, its an OK set. I love some (like Trypticon, Fangwolf and Nightbeat) while some could've been better with a little help (like Misfire and Skrapnel) and some I'm not really interested in (Like Wingspan Hawk and Silversnout). Interestingly, the package now says "Robot to Beast" although most are still vehicles! They're really plugging the Dinobot thing, I guess.
