    I finally found this guy today, and I love him. I search around the board for is review but there is none, so I decide to do a review for him. Bear in mind I still new at reviewing tf, so don't expect my review to be as good as some of other reviewer here

    Anyway on to the figure itself...

    Ejector is a toaster....an ordinary kitchen appliance, a pretty small 4 bread toaster...

    [​IMG]

    With a bit of electrical cord danggling behind...

    [​IMG]

    Now on to transformation

    Swing down his legs

    [​IMG]
    Twist his feet around

    [​IMG]

    Unfold his back, arm and his face

    [​IMG]

    And you have Ejector in robot mode

    [​IMG]

    His robot mode is interesting, he got a huge face, four arms and tiny feet. His tiny feet could pose a problem in posing him, but considering he's a scout class, he will not often fall like sideways or sideswipe.

    He got many articulations, in his arms he got shoulder ball joint, and in his main arms, mainly in his elbow and wrist, in his outer arm on his elbow can be move. His legs only have articulation in his knee and feet and finally his face is articulated, his upper face can be moved up or down.

    Here he's posing try to eat something, or threw something out from his mouth

    [​IMG]

    here a few more pics of him

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To me his robot mode is remind me of the devil, with his horn on the head and a pronged tail, except he's not red. Anyway he's really cool scout figure and I'm recommend pick this guy up.

    Thanks for the review, glad someone finally did one. If you have any figures, could you take a photo or two of Ejector with some Animated Decepticons?

    Nice review! I like that you kept it simple and to the point, and you showed off the articulation nicely.

    Man, what a fun little figure. I love when I can see a designer's sense of humor really coming through in a figure. Chompy mouth, power cord tail, devil face... so fun!

    And hey, his four arms even make a certain sense, since he's a four-slot toaster. Now you just need a photo of him hanging out with Ramjet. :)

    I've been wanting a transforming toaster for a very long time, so picking this guy up today was a no-brainer.

    Pros:
    Turns into a toaster
    Great articulation in the arms (love that he can cram stuff into his mouth)
    Simple yet clever transformation with more steps than you might think

    Cons:
    No back end on the toaster. Looks like it's been sliced off and you can look inside.
    Legs are minimally articulated and the goat-like style doesn't help this problem
    Feet are so tiny they have no chance of keeping him standing

    Random thoughts:
    Overall I like him. He's going to make for some great photo opportunities (I have Pop Tarts perfectly scaled for him). I really like that you have the option of folding his extra arms up because I prefer how he looks with just two.

    I don't particularly care for the style of his head and face. It looks to 'organic' to me and not very robot-like. It matches the overall demon-like look however, so it's not all bad.

    The 'cord' or 'tail' seems like it should have been made with a black string rather than white.

    I wish the toast slots were painted black instead of silver. As they are the look is too continuous with the rest of the body of the toaster. Black would have given the illusion that there are slots there.

    I want more. The Real Gear line from the first movie is still my favorite line of modern transformers, and I'd love to see more like them and like Ejector.

    Still think he should've been called Browning.

    Anyways, he's on my puchase list. Wish Hasbro would've done something similar to this and made a Frenzy Scout. Both are boxy in alt mode and those extra flaps on the arms could've been a second set of arms. Make the face pull up higher and in a Frenzy design and Bob's yer uncle.
    Oh well... missed opportunities I guess.

    For alt mode it's a tie because toasters are as underused as biplanes.
    For bot mode Ransack is by far better proportioned and balanced.

    Now that I've played with Ejector a bit more, I'm liking him less. The legs and head really kill him for me, and I also noticed the bottom jaw keeps the shoulders from swinging out all the way so they are always sort of angled back.

    His arms are also a total bitch to get back into bot mode as the force it requires (on mine at least) to swing the shoulder pieces out is greater than the force required to pop the arms off, so in order to move the shoulder pieces I have to first pop the arms off, dig the joint out, and then pop the arms back on.

    I still like him, but I think he's a missed opportunity.
