Let me spoil my verdict on this somewhat maligned figure before you continue reading - I really like him a lot. Hate him, or want to agree? Well, that's what the reply button is for. Undermine arrives, as expected, in the sweet, partially resealable Cybertron Scout packaging. A lot of twist ties are holding him back, nearly ten of them, but he pops out of the bubble rather easily after that. In "Jungle Planet velociraptor" mode, Undermine stands about as tall as the average Scout and is just right to go with Energon Cruellock or a repaint. He has fourteen points of articulation in beast mode, most in his legs and tail. His Planet Key gimmick is not as useful in this mode, since it comes close to whacking himself in the neck, but it could have been worse. Aside from his robot eyes being visible, Undermine could almost pass for a robotic spinosaur of some kind. In robot mode, Undermine gets some extra height and is a bit more interesting. Undermine only has twelve points of articulation now, but counting his club weapon, can go up to fifteen. Also, his robot head may be stuck but his chest has some poseability due to the transformation, making it lucky sixteen. Undermine's robot mode is quite unusual considering the sail is now his "headdress," but it gives him a unique tribal look that I haven't seen around since Dinobot Striker. His Planet Key gimmick is more accessible and fits his bio as a silent stalker, and the bonus of a hand weapon that he can hold with no problem (using a tab, instead of the standard peg, aside) and this is one sweet beast. One final note - many people seem to complain about his eternal "four-armed" look, which is even seen in the show. However, there is an option built into the mold that is obvious if you know what you're looking for, that gets the dino arms out of the way. Both sides of Undermine's body include various pegs that are supposed to lock the grey pieces that connect the dino neck/robot arms to the body. If, however, one rotates the grey "shoulders" towards the back of the body, they lock into place again somewhat and the dino arms are much more effectively hidden from view. If that's old news, I'm sure someone would still appreciate the info. Until next time, have fun with sail-backed dino TFs.
