Before we begin, let me warn you that I quite like the NuRID One Steps, so my way of thinking may not necessary match with your way of thinking. And that's fine, variety is the spice of life after all. Now, first off I'm quite liking this BeeSwipe crash combiner. It's rediculous, very much in the same vein as the One Steps, so if you like them (precious few of us I know) or even the Superlink combiners in Energon then I think you'll like these. Alt modes are just boxes with push fit wheels. Not big either, kinda like small Legends. Bigger than Legions though. They desperately need more paint, it looks like there's a semi decent alt mode there if only it were embellished a bit. The robot modes are basically stand up the cars (ala RPM Speedstars!) but you do open up the chests to flip up the heads, rotate the feet out and swing out the arms a bit. Sideswipe can separate his legs a bit too(!) Considering their size they're not bad, but again would look much better with a lick of paint. Hilariously they have the same articulation as G1 Duocons, because of those swing out arms only. But it's the combining them and it flipping out to be a robot which is actually really the fun bit, just like a Duocon! Shit, it they did actual Duocons (ie Flywheels and Battletrap) I'd be all over those like a rash. Anyway... He has long torso syndrome like G1 Squawkbox. This guy is very much in the same vein as the Superlink Energon Combiners, ie they're good 'toys' but as figures they're crippled by the gimmick Combination gimmick. But because this is spring loaded (as opposed to the manually conversion of Energon) it's actually really good fun. Smush them together (in this case Sideswipe rearends Bumblebee for Autobot-centipede/insurance scam action) and *snap* suddenly there's a robot. It deffo brings a smile to my face, but it does look horrible. Also £12/$12 is proper pushing it. £10/$10 is MAX really, £8/$8 is probably more the right speed. TLDR, it looks terrible, but it's actually really good fun. Madness. Edit Oh, you can pull BumWipes legs further apart then in my combined shot. Turns out Sideswipe has two positions for his legs, one click for the littl robot and all the way out for the combined mode. Doh!
