I want to get his Universe 1.0 repaint Ransack. Is he worth getting?
*looks up which figure that is*
No. Oh god no. Very disappointed with that. I guess if you like Armada toys in general he might be alright, but... no thanks.
Not in that colour... I strongly suggest Cyb. Longrack. Nicer colour scheme and much better head sculpture.
I have Ransack. I love him.
I've got both the Armada release as well as Cybertron Longrack retool. If I were to choose 1 I'd go for ther later due to the much better proportioned head and cool deco to boot.
The mold itself though while not spectacular, is pretty simple, basic bag of fun!
For an Armada mold, this one is very good. If you're okay with the non-symmetrical, I'd pick it up.
He's a pretty good mold despite his asymmetrical appearance. I sadly got rid of Armada Hoist and now I regret it. His Mini-Con Refute...not so much. I too own Cybertron Longrack, and he's FUN to play, especially since I'm a sucker for construction vehicle Transformers.
I didn't mind him but the ratchet joints on mine would never click to line up in the right places in alt mode so it always sat wonky.
Get him in either the original or the Longrack colours if you can. Just don't bother with the minicon, as Hoist isn't dependant on it, and he doesn't have the ugly block that is the cyber key port too. Longrack is very pretty though.
Easily the best deluxe to come out of the Armada line and a very fun figure. I'd definitely recommend picking him up.
It's not terrible, and a standout from the Armada line. Transformer toys have evolved by leaps and bounds since then though.
