Armada Demolisher and Blackout Review

Long before the movies, there was Demolisher and Blackout in the Transformers Armada line. In fact, some would argue that these characters are more iconically associated with the names than the movie lads. Indeed, hey might even be a high-point of Armada. BUT, were these plasitic representations of those characters any good?

Outstanding toy. Love that he is functionally a battlemech!

Re: Armada Demolisher and Blackout Review

He is, in essence. But...outstanding? I dunno about that, I mean, look at the wealth of articulation limits, especially after how good RiD was. I like the character, I love this transformation, but if anyone could benefit from an update, it would have to be good ole Demolisher!

Nah he's fine. I don't really care if he can't swivel his shoulders. He's well-made, looks great, has a fun transformation, a gerwalk/battlemech mode, and his minicon integration is good. I wouldn't buy a new version that has more joints.

To each their own, bad articulation is a killer for me. I would totally be down for a new version. To me, this is the story of good potential and a great character who deserved better than what he got. Different priorities, i guess.
