Transformers Combiner Wars Deluxe Class Offroad

I previously mentioned that i'm indifferent towards Hasbro's Combiner Wars. Not that it's bad or anything but i'm just not into combiners. But when wave 2 arrived, 2 deluxes stood out among the Stunticons. Those 2 were Deadend and Offroad. And while i didn't manage to get Deadend, here's Offroad instead. Basically a new character made to replace Wildrider in IDW's storyline, he's reckless Stunticon trying to gain his fellow teammates trust.

So right off the bat, you'll notice Offroad's alt mode is using the colours of Wildrider. Weird but i don't really mind. He's molded in gray plastic and painted with red and silver. Nothing spectacular, but i really dislike that his Decepticon's insignia is painted to side. It looks awkward.

Offroad's alt mode is nothing to write home about. It's a solid looking pick up truck that hold together well.

So being a combiner, Offroad is also able to become either a leg...

...or an arm. Though the arm is weaker because his hands doesn't peg in anywhere. He seems to have pegs and slots to hold the arms in place but it doesn't work.

But bot mode is where Offroad shines. He looks great with a cool looking headsculpt and blue parts to break up the monotonous gray colour scheme. His shoulder pads somewhat reminds me of samurai armor as well.

Too bad he has to carry the entire hood of the alt mode as his back pack.

Accessory wise, he comes with a pretty cool tomahawk.

Offroad is pretty articulated and thanks to a balljointed head, he can do a variety of expressions. Though his huge shoulder pads does limit the articulations.

At the end, he's a pretty solid figure. Now i'm still unsure if i will buy all of Menasor, but i'm pretty happy to have Offroad.

Anyway, thanks for viewing!
