These deliveries from Kapow Toys and boutik247 should have given me nothing but a high, but that isn't the case I'm sad to say.
Today's items are Revenge of the Fallen Jetpower Optimus Prime and Universe Classics (or again, Revenge of the Fallen depending on which packaging you get) Bruticus Maximus.
The Jetpower Optimus Prime is a specially done 2-pack with Buster Optimus Prime and Jetfire sporting some notable differences from the Buster Optimus Prime and Jetfire I already own.
Hell, they look so damn nice in the box that I'm thinking of keeping these bad boys MISB (and if you don't like that, Nemmy says go buy your own!).
Now we move to the repaint of Bruticus Maximus, and the main gripe I want to voice about it is...
FOR FUCKS SAKE, HASBRO!!! WHY CAN'T YOU BASTARDS ASSEMBLE THESE BLOODY ENERGON GESTALTS CORRECTLY, HUH?!
Seriously, needing to fix the Superion repaint was bad enough. But seeing that Onslaught's legs were assembled WRONG the very second I lay eyes on him and needed to be switched around pissed me off.
Then as if to add icing on the cake, I get a Blast Off with a assembly error so unbelievably bad it can't be fixed with a screwdriver.
Yeah, they totally fucked up the assembly process with the metal pin of his left foot so it hinders the functionality of pretty much everything!
As a limb, it's difficult to use the Energon weapon because the point of connection is too misaligned. And in robot mode, he's unable to stand straight because he has one foot further down than the other.
Just what the fuck is the deal with this shit?! My Super Link Superion and Bruticus never needed to be put right, so why the fuck do I need to correct these blasted repaints of them?!
