Here's a short review of the Transformers Dark of the Moon Human Basic Backfire with Spike Witwicky. Apparently Spike Witwicky is a character from the G1 era as well. I knew it had to be related with the last name, but I am not familiar at all with G1.
Out of the package in robot mode. It looks alright in robot mode, nothing spectacular.
This is the weapon mode, I think it is related to the Mechtech feature on the deluxe size and up Transformers. There's a peg on the bottom at the back for this mode which I think can be attached to the Mechtech ports.
And finally the vehicle mode, which is the reason I got this. Gotta love this 3-wheel bike design. I've been wanting to custom make one of these in R/C form for the longest time.
Low-rider for on-road driving...
and jacked up for offroading!
Overall it is a fun toy, I just really like these Human Alliance basics because I think they are sort of a cross between Transformers and Joes. I just wished they were bigger in size to work with the 4" Joes, THAT would make them PERFECT!
