This set includes both Trash-Talk and Cog-Wheel figures, as well as guns and, two alternate faces, and a drink tray! Figures stand approximately 4" tall.
"Can't Trash Talk These Guys"
I was VERY impressed with these figures right out of the box. Joints were very tight and paint apps were flawless. Trash-Talk's accessories are awesome as well and it will make fans of the comic even more happy. Transformation is pretty simple which is a given due to the size of the figures which is about scout size. Still, they aren't as simple as any scout put of by Hasbro. In fact, locking the wrists into place was downright difficult but once you succeed it gives you a well deserved, locking "click". I would highly recommend these figures to anyone, especially as a replacement for the Hasbro versions.
"SMALL DESIGNS, BIG PERSONALITY"
Swerve deserved a great representation, and this is poetry in plastic. If I'm being honest, I paid for Trash-Talk, and got Cogwheel for free :P
It's impressive, how much personality they managed to cram into such a small package. Trash-Talk's big grin is epic, and I almost want to believe 'body language' was a topic of discussion during the early stage of their design. Pose options are among the most life-like I've seen so far.
I counted 20 points of articulation, including a ball jointed waist, and some interesting engineering in the shoulder joints. Cogwheel is slightly less balanced, due to a difference in his vehicle modes design. His feet don't stand as flat from heel to toe, so weight distribution is hindered. It isn't bad, but you can definitely get away with wilder poses in Trash-Talk.
Transformation is really simple, but still clever. It's refreshing to have figures you can transform in just a few seconds, without feeling like it was dumbed down. There's something really fun about it.
The drink tray was an incredible addition, and the "Shoomer" even has a clear plastic bead set in the optic to give it a lens look. Make Toys really went the extra mile. I'm always nervous with any 3rd party company the first time I try them, but this is high quality stuff. Thick sturdy plastics, with really rich color. Flawless paint apps, and excellent designing. Easily MP quality, if not better.
"Say Hello to My Little Friend(s)"
When I comes to hype nothing is usually as good as it sounds, this is not one of those situations. These guys are incredible! They say big things come in small packages and that holds true with these petite powerhouses. They have everything a great transformer is supposed to have, excellent articulation, stellar paint apps, cool accessories and gobs of attitude. The joints on mine are super tight and the plastic quality is top-notch, this dynamic duo should be a must have for any transformer collector.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
