So here we have Tusker, the leader of the Glacialbots, and boy…he’s one heck of a combiner commander:
As a Wooly Mammoth, I wasn’t sure just how well the figure was going to turn out but the moment I saw him in his packaging, I was sold! And speaking of packaging, as before we get the deluxe treatment for nostalgia fans:
As before, we get a wonderful amount of faux fading, rips and tears on the box, a little more noticeable this one –
Some additional packaging pictures – on the back we see some outstanding “Retro” artwork, featuring some really cool images of FP past and presumably future toys coming out.
And even more awesome – on the bottom, we see some cells from a rumored animated feature for the team (heavily rumored, there’s no confirmation of anything at this point).
On to the figure him self: Tusker, like G1 combiner leaders, he’s much bigger than the other two members we’ve seen so far, Fangro and Tailclub:
And he sure looks great in Robot mode. He has limited articulation, but given the design of the transformation he’s more than just a brick with arms and legs:
He has a shoulder shield and the tusk of the mammoth becomes his rifle, which is awesome.
So very cool. More robot mode pictures:
In Mammoth mode, he looks very very nice. The color scheme works extremely well!
He looks great with the team too –
He comes with the same little power/head master too:
But as you can see from the robot mode picks, there’s a separate head that flips over the little guy
Finally, here’s a teaser shot of the partially completed Glacial Lord next to Piranhacon –
He’ll look amazing when done.
So there we go, stay tuned because we have a lot coming up!
The more I see these guys, the more I want them. Unlike other 3P stuff, I don’t see me balking at buying the set when it’s finally released. The mammoth mode kind of reminds me of a Power Ranger Zord crossed with an 80’s Zoid for some reason. He’s awesome looking.
He’s very cool, a great design for sure!
