    transformers universe tankor review (Loads of Pics)

    just a few pics of universe tankor....

    I like this figure but have a couple of gripes, firstly his wings are tiny for the size of his plane mode and secondly his arms seem too short for his body and are very weedy looking. Good overall figure easly 7.5 out of ten

    Sweet. He's looks really good without the blade thing. Also, I like the added paint on Astrotrain's head.

    Hooray for pictures instead of video!

    He looks like a good match for Astrotrain.

    Argh... I really didn't want to get this guy, but now his awesomeness has been confirmed through many sources I'm afraid I must.:p 



    Seriously awesome fig without the blade weapon. Astrotrain needs company and Octankor is just the friend he needs.

    Don't worry, they're not out. This is a test shot (I assume) or a packaged sample obtained on the secondary market.


    Also, I don't think his arms look short, it just seems from the pics that thye're set too high up. Still, doesn't bother me. (Adds to the look. I love quirky/goffy figs like these)

    It's really too bad he couldn't have been an Ultra size to get better proportions and transformation, but whatcha gonna do? I'll still be getting him, but reluctantly so.:redface2:

    Another for the 'to buy' list.
    I love Triple Changers, and Tankor looks great.
    At first his saw-blade weapon thingy made his robot mode look awful to me, but without it he looks pretty damn good.

    Jet mode is a little wonky (no more than Astrotrains train mode), but Tanker mode is pure love.

    Needs Upgrade

    The Vehicle modes are O.K. but it seems the figures coming out are going back to the hands-inside-cone mold that Gn.1 figures had.I think the hands should come out from the arms since the toys are being re-done.

    Overall he is a good/great figure but has some flaws. 8/10 overall

    BOT MODE:
    has good articulation and is poseable but has short arms

    JET MODE:
    not really anything wrong with this mode except for short wings but it doesn't bother me

    TRUCK MODE:
    this mode has the most problems and barely passes for a truck
    but it does roll nicely and front and sideways poses look good

    the mêlée blade gets alot of bad press but i like it in certain poses like the shield mode
