I just got this guy from ShowZ. I wrote a review since I earn points by doing so. Thought I might as well post the review here. This guy is a lot of fun! He looks and feels premium. He comes with a lot of accessories and extra parts. Besides his gun and tail whip, he comes with a rigid spear whip, hubcaps that can be wielded as bucklers, bombs that store in his arms, a weighted stand, a stand adapter, an adapter for MP Dinobot for vehicle mode, and a pair of gloves for safe handling. More accessories than I care to use if I am being honest, but at a good price of $70-80 USD, none of it feels padded on to jack up the price. The paint and finish is gorgeous! TA’s best work so far IMO. It looks like my copy is from the first production batch since his brain and chest piece are orange instead of copper. I have no preference either way. I can’t think of any flaws regarding the paint or finish. He also feels like a premium piece. All of his joints are tight and he has great articulation, including articulated jaws in both modes. The backpack bothers me more than I thought it would. From straight on, it doesn’t look that bad, but it is extremely apparent from all other angles. Despite the large backpack, he is able to stand up straight without any issues. His transformation is more complex than expected, especially from this company. The transformation is actually quite clever, and results in a very clean looking beast mode with a covered up belly. It makes use of faux parts, which I don’t mind since they are appropriately hidden in both modes. His gun can store inside of his beast mode and he can store the whip as his tail without the use of swapping parts. He transforms into a rather large honkin’ rat. It looks too big in my opinion, and oversized compared to other MP-scaled Beast Wars figures like Dinobot and TA Cheetor. That said, his beast mode is very clean with a covered belly, and is quite expressive with posable limbs, head, and jaw. Overall I am very pleased with this release. Great articulation, good stability, amazing paint and finish, and a fun transformation. My only critiques are the large backpack and oversized beast mode. I would like to see someone else take a crack at the design to reduce the size of the backpack, and compact the robot into a smaller sized rat for better scale in beast mode, perhaps without the use of faux parts. But for now, I am quite happy with this release. Man, I hate to revive this discussion from so long ago, but I cannot just let this go. I wanted to wait until I got TA Rattrap in hand so I could do some comparisons, and based on my observations, I strongly disagree with your assertion that TA Rattrap is scale accurate in beast mode, or that compacting a robot into a smaller shell would result in an undersized beast mode. Since I would rather not clutter this thread with discussions on scale, I posted my comparisons in the Unofficial Beast Wars Scale Chart thread. Feel free to judge for yourself.
