After my long hiatus, it’s time to jump back into reviews with the Autobot Data Discs from the Fall of Cybertron line.
As I’ve mentioned time and again, the cassettes were alway my favorite G1 toys, so I was thrilled to learn we were getting the Autobot discs from the FOC line. I ended up getting them online as a full set, which made things easy, but less fun for sure…
The Autobot discs for the most part are nothing we haven’t seen, with Eject and Rewind using the Frenzy/Rumble mold but with new head sculpts and some different (and really well done) detailing:
Rewind comes with Sundor, because Steeljaw was included with Blaster. Sundor uses the Laserbeak mold but is a nice bright orange, and seems he hails from the Kiss Player universe (research that at your own risk…) it’s pretty awesome that they included him:
Eject comes with the star of the show though, the most successful of the this whole “auto-transform” gimmick: Ramhorn!
There are several reasons why I love this little guy –
One: He looks very much like War Within Ramhorn –
Provided you customize his eyes like I did. But the one horn look is awesome seems he really wouldn’t look like an earth rhino yet.
Two: His transformation works perfect every time!
Three: He’s the same color as G1 Ramhorn and even has his gold missile pod molded in! Awesome!
There isn’t too much to say other than that. They’re cool little toys that I’m VERY grateful were made, despite a lot of the complaints by fans.
So there we go, this was more of a dust off post, while I get back into gear. We’ll look at the MP cassettes next.
Here’s the video review as well:
