personally I would have done Arcee or Velocity - who turn into cars.
Same, joints are all solid on mine and she feels as robust as past Fans Hobby toys. I think she may give the illusion of being more fragile because she’s a smaller bot with thin car shell pieces on her, whereas all previous FH bots are thick, chonky boys.
The only two issues mine had were the door panel tabs needing to be thickened because they didn’t tab tightly in bot mode and the headmaster needing some tab trimming to pull out more easily.
Worth it for the pun. Thew rules.
It's not just Bobby Skullface
Athena is no where near the level of quality of let's say Power Baser or Double Evil. I really enjoyed Double Evil and was so happy to hear that they were going make some Headmaster Jrs but Athena turned out to be so lacking. The hands are awkward, they so long and thin and don't use the rail system that other Fans Hobby releases use. They remind me of when Gundam uses the all purpose posable hands, they are just not as good as the fixed position hands. The panels that peg onto the calves don't tab in securely. Knees are a little on the floppy side as well as the ab crunch. The white plastic feels slightly grainy, not 3D printed grainy but doesn't feel as smooth as it could be. And then there's the top-of-the-car-kibble backback. Fans Hobby didn't even try to clean that up. If the windshield could have spun around and laid flat against the rear windshield and then bring the spoiler up it would looked a lot better. With the exception of the backpack, which can be partsformed off, these are rather minor complaints but they weigh equally on what is good about the toy.
It's a $60 third party release and you get what you paid for. No more no less.
This is such a stupid choice of character for this mold, I love it.
i dont get all yhe complaining about minerva having a giant backpack. in the cartoon she indeed had a giant chunk sticking out of her back.
This figure is hilarious
i mean its so silly im like maybe now. i dont have the mold, im always a sucker for con exclusives of molds i dont have. I would like to buy something, anything if anyone could come up with something interesting and fresh... which would actually describe this as
in my head im just trying to sort out which stand in on my idw shelf i prefer. this or my iron factory windblade legends figure that i pretend brainstorm has shrunk
Nice. A female transformer that doesn't just tuck up into a huge shell/backpack. And yet makes a decent car form.
"Wheel Blade will be available to order at www.thechosenprime.com on Saturday October 24 at 10AM EST." - TCP's Facebook page
Yea I'd seen that in the Minerva thread a few minutes ago - I just sorta figured nobody would answer me.
Ummm...Ok???!!! In the words of Emgo "This is a thing...a thing you can do".
I'm just glad we are having a convention. Even though it's virtual. Hopefully we will see some new stuff. I know the past few conventions have been just updates of stuff, but hopefully this will go back to new reveals. It would be a nice break
This is really cute! It's not for me at all, but it is still a great, unique concept.
I like the headsculpt, and I like Athena, but I don't think I need this. Windblade as a car just doesn't make sense to me.
Shoulda called her Wind Wheel, amiright?
That\'s one tiny ass mouth
That looks hilariously bad.
Appropriate, because this mould is dogshit and should be erased from existence for sullying Minerva's name and image.
