Here's my third of three new PCC Commander 2-pack review, the only Autobot of the bunch, Leadfoot with Pinpoint. I think I was maybe expecting too much from this guy, or maybe it was because yesterday I opened and reviewed the better-than-I-expected Sledge. Leadfoot is decent, sure, even very good, but Sledge is better, and Throttler is the third best of the three new mini-cons. Leadfoot comes in robot mode, and he's clearly into light bondage because he's tied down both with the sisal ties as well as rubber bands across his chest and both feet. He's a brown-orange color with white, silver and black mixed in and of course allspark blue for the PCC connectors. Not bad, but he may look better with a repaint. I can see a very credible PCC Mirage coming out of this guy, especially because of the Indy car alt mode and the similar transforms. Poseability is fine in robot mode, he's got oddly shaped arms but plenty of range of motion in the shoulders, poseable shoulder pads, bicep rotators and big hands made up of the engine blocs and three curved dragster-style exhaust pipes for fingers. There's another stubby exhaust-like bit that can stand in for a thumb, or maybe a small arm-mounted blaster, on each arm. The connectors are right below the hands, and the big back wheels are on the outsides of these big hands. The legs are okay, but they lack a real swivel joint as there is a diagonal cut joint instead - kind of useless in regular robot mode, but needed in torso mode due to the unique way it forms. There's decent knee flex and the spoiler halves are poseable in two places. The PCC connectors are, per usual, heel spurs. I like the heads on this guy. His regular mode head is slim and elongated, regal and serious. He kind of looks like a robot interpretation of Obama, believe it or not. Robobama. Rather than there just being a hardpoint in the center of the chest, there's a little panel in the center that swings down and becomes a loincloth-style armor panel, and the hardpoint can pop up from behind it. Opening the chest reveals the larger torso mode head, which looks like a racing helmet combined with Cybertron Noisemaze's face (a blank clear skinny triangle-style bit). Pretty nice, and fitting the racer/infiltrator bio notes. The back of the bot mode features the front-of-car hardpoint easily accessible, and the front wheels fold up with some fan-style detailing on top, so it looks like a VTOL pack of some sort. You can put Pinpoint on the back, on the chest, or Leadfoot can hold Pinpoint by the hardpoint using holes in each hand. You can even position Pinpoint so that Leadfoot can hold him using both hands, sort of like Car Robots God Magnus and his weapon. Transformation to torso mode is unique. When I started it, I turned the legs on the cut joints to find the hollow edges facing out and realized that the torso mode faces backwards. Makes sense, as the Autobot symbol is on that side. The larger head turns around, the legs cut around and position 90 degrees down. The arms fold down at the shoulders, then the whole arm assembly folds up to flank the head, and holes on the inside of the hands sort-of tab onto the sideview mirrors. They don't tab solidly, though. The PCC connectors fold out from under the hands. The finger/exhaust pipes wind up as moose-antler style decorations around the head. I'm not a huge fan of the torso mode, it's fine for what it is, but the shoulder bits and thigh bits want to inhabit the same space, and I think I may need to figure out how best to position both parts so that can happen. The side mirror tabs aren't great, and it doesn't feel particularly solid. Pinpoint can do his chest or back mounted weapon thing on either side of the torso mode, another nice touch here. Transformation to vehicle mode is reminiscent of Classics Mirage, especially in the legs. Legs and spoiler peg together, not sure what Blackrock is, but that's what it says on the spoiler. It's positionable, for what it's worth. The front of car folds up over the head, and the arm/hand bits fold back and peg into the legs. The result is that all four of the PCC pegs are pointing back from the racer. I did have a bit of difficulty pegging the arms onto the legs - the slot on the hands had some mold flash clogging it up, so it barely was even visible as a tab. You may have to trim the flash, or just push the tab firmly into the slot to clear out the flash. The resulting Indy racer is kind of oddly proportioned - he's got those big dragster-style pipes on each side in front of the wheels, which clearly don't belong but look fun anyway. The double air scoops behind the driver compartment look like they're up a bit higher than they should be. The cockpit opens, but there's just a folded-down hardpoint inside. I'm not too impressed by the instruction's way of attaching Pinpoint to the vehicle mode, it looks too bulky on so sleek a car. You can position the legs along the car to streamline it a bit. Very G1 Targetmaster/Powermaster. Pinpointer is a clear yellow and black minicon with definite leanings towards being a powermaster and targetmaster, as he has a big back-mounted supercharged engine, mini exhaust pipes on his arms, and fold-out dual skinny gun barrels in front. The guns can swivel around a bit, and in robot mode can fold over his shoulders. He's fun, but I wish he pegged together a bit better, as there are a couple of tiny ineffectual tabs that are supposed to peg his arms and legs together in engine/weapon mode. He's got hardpoints on each knee and a peg hole in his chest, so there are lots of connection possibilities. I do like the guns, and there are plenty of ways to turn him into a gun, engine, jetpack, etc. Overall I like Leadfoot well enough - I think that out of the three, I would rank them as Sledge first with Icepick and Leadfoot tied at second place. Of the three minicons I like Throttler the best, then Chainclaw with Pinpoint third. Thanks for the help with my camera, I think this batch may have turned out a bit better. Still not as great as I'd like, but you get the idea. There are some bonus shots of all three together as well. Tim "Toy Geek" Three vehicle modes w/minis: DSCN0848 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
