    Wasn't sure if anyone had done a pictorial review of this guy but I picked him up recently at a local Big Lots (priced at $7.50).

    Don't knock this guy just for being Backstop. Regardless of what most would say I happen to love this little guy. He is a fun, and intricate little mold for his size class. Here's some comparison shots with the original Cybertron version of this mold.

    Notice the teal kneecaps? Nemesis Backstop? Dark Backstop perhaps? lol

    All joking aside this new repaint is a fantastic update to the original color scheme. The Cyber Key he comes with is a straight up blue version of the Jungle Planet key.

    All in all I'd definitely say pick this little guy up :thumb 

    My only complaint being.... I wish they'd given him either the name Rhinox or Rhinox's paint scheme.

    His color scheme is definitely superior to the original, but I have no reason to ever buy that toy

    That colour scheme is very flattering to the mould. Just some green and he'd have made a nice Rhinox homage like you say.

    :lol  @ the last pic. Nice one!

    But it IS based on Rhinox, albeit his Transmetal toy...
