Thanks to the fine people at Hasbro and Hunter PR, I was given Quickslinger and Brake-Neck early so that I could get time with them to give you, valued ASM reader, my thoughts.
However, life as a parent means things don’t go to plan. I will sadly have to postpone my reviews of these toys until later (I hope to do a full breakdown over the next few weeks), but that being said, I do want to share some quick thoughts:
- You know you’re going to want to buy these. For the G1 “purist”, you need these toys to make Superior and Menasor the way you remembered them as a kid…. or adult, I won’t judge.
- Even if you like the new characters (and believe me, I’m all for introducing new characters), you’ll want these toys. Extra limbs can be used with Optimus, and I’m sure Cyclonus wouldn’t mind having them either.
- While it would be interesting to see what Hasbro could have done with all new molds for these toys, what they did do with minor remolds is great. The headsculpts are quite nice, the decos chosen hearken back to the original toys.
Look for more in the coming weeks!
