Mudflap has arrived! Well, at my doorstep anyway, thanks to BBTS. As most Cybertron toys do, Mudflap comes packaged in vehicle mode. And what a nice vehicle mode it is. Super realistic(ok, except for the missile launcher near the cab), nice size, and if I'm not mistaken, is actually in scale with Hot Shot and the other vehicle TF's in Cybertron. Transformation is fairly simple. His side panels in vehicle mode pull up, and then you turn him on his right side. You then pull apart and fold down his legs. Rotate the side panels 90 degrees, then reposition his arms. Next open his chest panel and unfold his head, then fold it back onto his shoulders/chest. One thing to remember: Both the cab cannon and the crane cab/boom are on hinges that can be moved so they don't restrict the arm articulation. *edit* After looking at the instructions, that's actually the first thing you do. Oops, my bad. Once in robot mode, he's even cooler. Articulation up the whazoo. I'm serious, damn near everything on this figure moves! While he doesn't have a handheld weapon, he has the cab cannon on his right arm and on his left is a sword, but the packaging calls it a saw blade. Whatever. Both gimmicks work in vehicle mode as well. A couple of things struck me odd about this figure now that I've had him for half a day or so. First, he doesn't have any electronics. Now, nowhere was it ever said that all Voyager class figures must have electronics, but since Armada, damn near all of them have. The only exception I can think of is GF Starscream, but that's because Takara gutted his electronics. If someone can correct me on this, have at it. The other thing that strikes me odd is that if he had a different paint job, he'd be an Autobot. Hell, he wouldn't even need a different paint job. Just swap his 'Con symbol for an Autobot sigil, and bam, instant Autobot. *SPOILERS* In Galaxy Force, Starscream convinces Demolishor/Mudflap to switch sides, therefore he's an Autobot who becomes a Decepticon. All in all, even w/o the electronics, Mudflap is awesome. Realistic alt mode, neat gimmicks, and good articulation make for a good figure. I paid over retail for him, but it was worth it. Definitely recommended.
