    Here is a pictorial review of the TF Prime Deluxe Deadend. This is basically a recolour of the TF Prime Deluxe Wheeljack with a different head scuplt. So I am not going to into a full pictorial review of this figure, if you have seen the review for Wheeljack, the articulations and even the weapons are the same except that they are green in colour now.

    Some pictures of the figure in alt mode:

    Not sure about you guys but the combination of different strong colours on this figure didn't work for me, this whole figure especially in alt mode looks like a vandalized car to me.

    And here are some pictures in robot mode:

    But I have to say that I do like the head scuplt of this figure, it got this menacing and ninja-like look which goes well with the swords I guess

    And a close up picture on the weapon:

    And finally some side by side pictures with Deluxe Wheeljack and more:

    Conclusion:

    I cannot recommend this figure for its paint apps but if you like the mold of wheeljack (which I do like very much actually) plus the head scuplt of this figure, then perhaps this figure can be for you. We don't know if this figure is going to appear in the show at all but chances is likely "no" as I don't really see how it is going to pan out that a deadend character will come onto the show having the same alt and robot mode with the character Wheeljack, unless the script writer proves me wrong. I guess it is like hotshot having the same mold as Bumblebee but different head scuplt, these figures are likely not going to be any characters that will appear at the show. You'll probably be able to find lots of this figure on the shelves in the mall.

    I like the car mode's colors, but they look cheap in robot mode. Mostly I just like the translucent green, which is hidden in the robot mode.

    Every time I look at that head I laugh :lol  it's sooooo stupid looking. The color scheme is pretty terrible too, it reminds me of radioactive vomit. And doesn't his bio say he's been affected by Dark Energon or something? If so, then why doesn't he have a lick of purple on him? And to be honest it would have made him much better looking. Overall I think this toy looks horrendous and I'll be avoiding it like the plague, I even prefer Airachnid to it. Still a good review though!

    Those colors are so garish. And that head sculpt is so freaky.

    I love it.

    Halloween incarnate! *starts humming "This is Halloween"*

    Kinda wish the painted/opaque greens were more of a sickly yellow-green like the piping appears to be, if not piped instead (the swords in particular would've been awesome looking done like that). They're a bit minty as it is.
    Hows the light piping? Can it achieve a hellish, sickly fiery glow you'd expect from a haunted jack-o-lantern?

    I think I said it before, but his color scheme is just insane and I love it for that.

    Yeah, I love the head, but these colours make it seem like a KO, and Wheeljack's white colour is so nice that its kind of a shame to pick Deadend over it. :(

    Does anyone else feel this was almost supposed to be a color homage to Bludgeon that turned out horribly wrong?

    I like to think that this is post-grenade Makeshift.

    Stuck between his own form and Wheeljack's, kept alive by Synthetic Energon.
