I opened up my Eagle Robo figure finally. It's not bad overall. I
find the transformation scheme is overly complicated (what else is
new with non-Hasbro stuff?) Also, one of the pins under the wing was
slightly out of place so I couldn't fit one of the guns under there
properly in jet mode (I fixed it though). I also can't seem to get
the wheel under the nosecone to come down (it seems to be wedged in
there quite good and I don't want to apply too much pressure). The
nosecone could be fit a bit snugger in jet mode. It clips together
but feels a tad loose. As far as size goes, I also think these guys
are a bit overpriced (they're roughly the size of a TF Deluxe).
Complaints aside, it looks pretty good in both modes and is a great
representation of the Gobot Leader-1/Eagle Robo.
Verdict: Good. Has a few flaws and could
be a bit cheaper. A must-have for Gobots fans. Otherwise,
might be worth waiting to see if it eventually goes on sale...
