    Finally arived today.


    Gears is a straight up repaint of the excellent Stockade mold in Blue,Red and silver.

    Packaging

    alt mode

    The only minor complaint is the lack of any color but i can see why they did it(blue would have looked nice)

    Bot mode

    no real complaints for bot mode.Colors are Gears even if the blue is too dark:lol 
    A new head would have been nice but it works even though i see Brawn.

    Bleh. The colors look like ass in my opinion. I understand they're an homage to G1 Gears, but that's not quite what I meant. My real problem is that a completely silver vehicle makes a predominantly blue and red robot. In a Classics mold, that'd be fine but it completely betrays the movie aesthetic.

    Definitely one I'd get. Never got Stockade, although I must admit I like his paintjob better. Will probably buy eventually!

    I always liked that mold. I may actually bite at this repaint.

    I need the mold, so I'll probably be picking him up. I SO need to do some customizing on him, though, those shades of blue and red just don't work together as solid colors. He might just work for a classics Brawn, though, and I just LOVE it when I can expand my classics rosters.

    I'll get him because he's freaking Gears, and also I have a special purpose for him, in relation to Stockade...

    I was hoping this could be another potential Classics/Universe fill-in like that upcoming Hoist repaint will be, but it's still way 'too movie' to pull off. The Cap't America vs. Spider-Man paint job isn't doing it any favors either.

    Great review, but there's something that bamboozles me.
    His Bio says he's a complainer, which is interesting, 'cause I thought the complaining was Huffer's job. But on the bright side, this isn't G1.

    Naw dude. Yeah Huffer crys alot too. But check out G1 episode "changing of the gears" or something. Gears is definetly a whinny little prick too.

    pass.
    his alt suffers the same ailment as TFU Ironhide/Ratchet.
    those Puzzle Pieces, gapped areas just kill an otherwise impressive vehicle.

    You guys remember "A Christmas Story"? those 2 bullies that beat up on everybody?
    Gears reminds me of that short, little punk.
    worse, he's got Optimus colors in bot mode.
    so...it makes me think that Optimus had a bitchy little punk nephew.
    that's what Gears brings to mind.
