MakeToys Bomber (Not Powerglide) and Hover (Not Seaspray)

MakeToys Bomber and Hover

Basically a 3rd party issue of powerglide and seaspray, complete with G1-ness and articulation.

The size is closer to the original G1 minibot size, unlike the Classics Ultra Powerglide (Here!) and the HFTD Voyager Seaspray.

I posted a video on youtube regarding this 2 fellas: Video

For bomber, the articulation of the elbows are somewhat limited, only being able to bend inwards. If you need to bend it forward, the fist will be facing palm-wards to the sky.

But i think the face makes up for it. The screw exposed on the forehead is a reminiscence of the G1 figure.

The articulation on the hips and knees are well executed.

Transformation is somewhat easy. I need not check with the instruction sheet provided. I guess you just have to fidget with the fella abit and it will all work out. But have to be careful with the tail wing (feet) when transforming as it may get abit tricky and filmsy. The color is also G1-like (thumbs up!)....overall i would say its still ok to acquire.

Hover is also a good reminiscence of the G1 Seaspray.

Articulation at the shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and even feet makes it a good figure to pose/play with.

Transformation for Seaspray is a challenge for me. Though similarly, no instructions required, but i always pop out the arms while trying to push the propeller upwards to transform into the bot mode. Vice versa, i have to be really really careful so as not to pop out the arms. Thank goodness that the arms are connected via ball joints and easy to fix. For a moment i thought i had broken something!! This is the about the only complain i have. If i really wana be fussy with it, then it will be the "Ronald McDonald shoes" he's wearing. Color-wise, its spot on vs G1 version.
