Hey guys, heres my video review of Universe Classic 2.0 Ultra Powerglide. Let me know what you think
Cool video, but I'll pass on getting him.
Looks like a fun toy, but with that red head and him being all white I dont know. Would have preferred classic powerglide colors, like their supposedly doing with Henkei. This hasbro version I cant help but think "Why is Ronald Mcdonald now a Transformer?" especially with him inbetween Onsluaght and Megatron, looks like he's about to get his skit plate kicked.
Thanks for the review. He looks great although I don't like that the top of his cockpit just hangs on his back like that.
From the design, Powerglide looks fairly top-heavy. Is this true with the actual figure? Is he at all difficult to pose if his legs aren't straight and parallel to the body?
I watched the review so I could see his heart. Where is it? I am curious to see what it looks like.
Looks like a buy to me...a buy then of course repaint red...thanks for the review...
i think it looks fantastic, except for when his gun is stored underneath his plane mode, how it's not directly in the middle, how it's not centered, if anyone knows what i mean. it is the same design on the actual plane it was disigned from?
No. The A-10 has is actually jutting out directly from the center of the nosecone. But I can live with it.
Just a tip, next time you film a review I recommend turning off the television and A/C. It'll keep that background static noise to a minimum.
nice review but but that figure looks like a plus size stripper with that engine chest
Still on the fence. I'm still not a fan of the reversed colors and with the cockpit essentially forming a backpacks of sorts I too wonder if he's top heavy...even the slightest.
I'll probably just wait for he Henkei! version to be released before I make up my mind of which version to buy...if at all.
Perhaps it's a nod to the Cobra Rattler? It mimiced the Thunderbolt, but the cannon is off-centered. (and it has a different engine configuration, and a rear gunner, but there's no doubting it was a take off on the A-10)
I never thought that they were so big
I thought that they would be the size of Classics Prime,Skyfire and Megatron
Well I'll buy it, but I'm not really happy with the paint scheme and the bot mode is off for me, I don't know what it is...I'll still buy it, it looks cool enough.
FYI the A10 cannon is off center on the real plane, just not by much as this picture shows:
the gun actually fires from approximately the 9 o clock position from the rotating barrel so the recoil is down the center line of the aircraft but the gun itself is not.
I guess this just tends to get exaggerated in toys.
The nose cannon on a Rattler is centred.
Great review again! Adding to some others feedback above, I think always using a comparison figure from the same line (as well as the others too!) is handy. Keep churning out the plastic crack vids
A shame we didn't get to see the heart. That's one of the key selling points (imo, at least)
All in all, definitely not what I was expecting. The transformation for the most part is quite a bit better than I expected, but the cockpit canopy hanging down is unforgivable.
Actually makes me glad I'm not buying Universe this time. It's a shame, he at least looked cool. (keyword: looked)
i might buy when it goes on sale. Then sell it.
But I don't really like it. Robot mode looks like..one of those old Punch Out characters. (big top, little bottom)
