Because this is way overdue, and I don't want to have to deal with this longer than I have to, or I'll get a headache the size of Rita Repulsa's when she's upset.


Introducing Saberback, the nastiest Predacon of a dinosaur that ever lived due to his stupidly complex transformation that will leave you exhausted and frustrated in ten seconds flat. =_=" Well...maybe not the most complex. That honor goes to Mach Kick, which I'm hoping Dad will exchange that $20 I got from him for. I hardly use cash these days, anyway, and the Beast Wars Neo line is so under-appreciated or overlooked that the toys are dirt cheap. And it'd be cool to show people a horse transformer whose head can spring up to poke out your eye if you're not too careful. It's definitely a gimmick I'd be a fan of. 

He's also the only Transformer with brushable hair in robot and in beast mode. 8D I think I have a tiny doll comb somewhere I could use on him, and maybe I might be tempted to tie ribbons on his tail by stripping the ones off that electronic Barbie palomino horse Sis got as a gift one year. Just give him to me...! I'll make him presentable for horse shows and...and... kidding. But I'll definitely make sure he looks nice on my shelf. ^_^

Sparky does not like all things that begin with S. )

Do I recommend this guy? If you're looking for a simpler Transformer that is simple to switch from mode to mode, no, because he is not easy to work with, and if you have kids, they are going to be really upset trying to play with him. But I do recommend him if you're looking for a challenge, and if you just want a great looking dinosaur on your shelf. He does look better than the fugly US repainted versions of himself though, so I wouldn't recommend paying the extra money to find his discontinued American cousins. He's also quite cheap. Now, I need to find something else to review next month. Hmm... Maybe I could be tempted to do a review on my 2010 Megazord, seeing as how it's Zyuranger's 20th anniversary.

Right. Because robots in disguise are so annoying sometimes. ^^;


Let's start with something easier to work with now, shall we? Presenting Corada VS Saberback...only, sans stegosaurus...for now. I'll work on a photoshoot for the stego tomorrow, since I can't be bothered to transform him now. (Fun fact: Saberback's transformation has been known to befuddle and infuriate even people with Ph.D degrees. What your education has to do with your ability to work a toy I have no idea, and I found the fact that the guy had to point this out hilariously funny.) 

The Transformers here are from a Japanese only series (it was never aired in the US) called Beast Wars Neo. Some episodes are subbed and I've seen them on Youtube, and there's quite a diverse cast. (Penguins, giraffes, and horses, oh my!) The toyline is also Japan exclusive but are relatively cheap to get online or otherwise, and I don't think these guys cost me more than $30-$40. Sold individually they shouldn't cost you more than $25 max. Stampy the rabbit from the Neo toyline can be found for as low as $8, for example. Mine is from the Korean re-release, and came in a box set. However, they're completely identical to the Japanese releases. Hip, hip, hooray! 

Hissy hissy little snakey, slither on the floor... Sparky, you're not speaking Parselmouth all of a sudden now, are you? O_o )
