Well, if you are a Transformers
collector, then you have probably all ready laid your eyes on the Titanic-Bot.
So you know what the toy is all about. If not, you can see pics of the
original Titanic-Bot by clicking HERE.
|This is how the bootleggers have
repackaged Titanic-Bot. Rather than have him in ship mode, this time, the
figure is now coming at ya in its 'Bot mode.
The bubble the toy is mounted under is molded to fit the figure. Also, the 'bot's weapons are securely fastened in a couple of special slots specially designed for them.
|One more difference in the figure is the head of Titanic-Bot. The original Titanic-Bot had a silver head. This new one now sports an orange head.||
|There's other changes in this
new Titanic-Bot. The card this toy is mounted on measures in at a whopping
13" X 9.5". The pics diagramming how to transform the toy are still on
the card. But one picture is different. You'll figure it out as you read
The smokestacks on the ship are now orange. They used to be a nice golden color.
The biggest (and most disappointing) change in this new version of the Titanic-Bot is that the bootleggers decided to cut some corners. The original toy was a wind up that actually floated on the water. This version now has the wind up mechanism missing along with the propeller that was located underneath the ship. Maybe the fact that this feature is now omitted is part of the reason that the bootleggers packaged this toy in the 'Bot mode. The way this toy is packaged, you can't see that the wind up part of the ship is now missing. Naturally, there are no statements on the card about how this ship can be wound up and sailed on water.
Is this a toy worth buying? Well, compared to the first version of Titanic-Bot, no. If ya missed out on the original, I suppose ya may wanna pick this one up. But all in all, this disappointing version of Titanic-Bot is quite inferior to the original one.
