Playing a little catch up with this entry, Warbotron Sly Strike! I’ve had this guy for a bit, but damn all the other cool stuff kept distracting me! (Believe me, if you only knew how many Figuarts I have skipped…) I will stay on this team though! So we have the latest of these combative robots, the arms dealer Sly Strike! (Ok we all know he is Swindle lol)
Starting out in vehicle mode, I am just floored by the awesomeness. This mold holds together great, and is pretty much flawless. The coloring pops, and upgrading to a hummer helps keep the scale whining in check.
He looks great from all angles. This is a great step up from the first release of the team. I can honestly say no complaints.
After a satisfying transformation we have THIS charismatic con! We now have some purple and black added to the color scheme and it is puuuuurty! Plus he has that damn grin on his face, ready to charm the next customer.
I love the light piping a swell…I could get lost in those eyes, and buy what ever he’s selling…
Articulation is spot on. Waist, knees, elbows, oh hell, the whole nine yards.
Sly Strike is armed with a pistol and a really big pistol. Rumor has it that the leader will have an add on piece for the large gun to be arm mounted.
And as an extra added awesome…he passes the one leg test with flying colors!
If it hasn’t been hammered into your face just yet, I love this figure. Swindle has been my favorite Combaticon and second favorite Decepticon, so I was going to be picky about him. Warbotron trashed that idea by making a fantastic rendition. Even if you were not getting the team, this is a great stand alone figure.
With three out of the five released I can say with confidence I am glad to have backed this project. Just two more to go!
