Transformers - Hunt for the Decepticons (Hasbro) - Voyager
"You don't get as old as HIGHBROW without fighting a lot of desperate, can't-win battles. He's been through his share, and come out on top, every time. THE FALLEN may be ancient and nearly all-powerful, but HIGHBROW is pretty old himself, and hes learned a lot of tricks over the years. Paired up with AUTOBOT RATCHET, he's sure THE FALLEN will be surprised to learn just how tough two determined AUTOBOTS can be." Back of box.
This has to be one of the more original Transformers in years. The robot form isn't much to write home about as it is mostly molded in color with only a little paint. The joints are pretty tight but there are transformation points that could loosen as time goes on. He's kinda awkward looking like they were trying to meld the movie and older styles. His head looks like it has a WW2 era flying cap on. It's the vehicle mode that makes him shine. It looks like a cross between what could have been during WW2 and some of the exaggerated designs you saw in old NES games that take place during alternate versions of WW2. It is amazingly easy to transform and is up there with the old G1 figures which makes the difficulty rating they gave it rather misleading. You could transform him without the manuals as everything pretty much slips into place. The bad things are the rather drab weapons, 2 mini guns that fit onto his wing, which seems really inadequate for a voyager class transformer. I also would have liked to have seen some era accurate paint applications with the autobot insignia melded into it. Overall he gets a 4.5 out of 5.
