The latest creation from Mastermind Creations is R-02 Talon! Combines with the other 4 FERAL CONS to form the awesome FERAL REX! Stands 7.25" (18.4cm) from feet to head and wingspan is an impressive 18.1" (46cm) fully expanded!
The most eye catching figure out of the team. He looks so much like the G1 dive bomb is shocking. However I dig how MMC allows you to customize the head of the eagle, like brimmed hat. What won me over with talon is how MMC engineered the sniper rifle. To be specific you can have Talon is some killer sniper poses, trust I have pictures
Like all the team members outstanding durability, flexibility and pose-ability. Clarification, again you can get Talon to hold any pose your heart desires. One good thing is this, Talon has ratchet sockets. Before I go on let me say something here about my new love affair with ratchet joints and sockets...
When I hear the clink and the grind of well greased down sockets, its music to my ears and it tells me the toy is built to last. Look I spent 100 bucks for these guys, so I expect top notch quality when I invest in a combiner...AKA I want to outlive me, okay no back to the review.
Let's get one thing straight I am not going to whine about the grey eagle feet. Coloring the feet back would indeed take away from the talons feet if you will. So I am over that and been over that.
The rest of the paint job on talon is crisp and bold. For example Talon's head sculpt the eyes stand out in bot mode and in alt mode. The wings are just spectacular, definitely makes feral Rex more imposing in combine mode. Also the wings are the sturdiest articulated plastic I have ever dealt with. MMC has done something special with talon.
Not saying badly, I feel that talon should have had a gold trim job on his chest. That's just me and my weird taste
Once I have gotten a completed Feral con squad I looked at them all and just took it in. I know I have bugged tf source about talon and Tigris release date, along with waiting a full year to get all of them in my possession. By looking at the Feral Cons together it was well worth it and money well spent. From all the test shots and pictures nothing beats having the Feral Cons in front of you...Way to go MMC.
"Talon is Amazing"
Talon is a Masterpiece. The detail is amazing, the figure is solid in construction, the transformation is easy to handle, and the plastic (not paper) tech spec card was a nice suprise. Some people might say that a/o $100 is high, but I'm an avid collector and the product is well worth it.
"a glorified chug figure"
I would liken it to Takara's voyager line Springer in that the bot mode character design is well represented. Too bad the price point isn't the same.
When displaying, spread those wings in its full glory!
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.
