That brilliant G1 Beachcomber review!

Post by Auntie Slag » Thu Jun 10, 2010 8:53 pm

I just wanted to draw attention to mAgic rAt's utterly bonkers review of Beachcomber. There's so much joyous imagery amongst his mad surfer dude-like quips, and he really puts across the vibe of how much fun a little minibot can be. Great lines like:

Transformation: 5 - Too simple, but still a 5 because it allows you to do the super fast 'I’m-racing-towards-the-decepticons-and-I-can-transform-in-mid-air-and-land-on-Soundwave’s-head'-move

How many of us did that move? I know I did. And it brought it all back reading those lines. I can imagine the big grin on mAgic rAt's face as he wrote this.

And I fully agree with him that Beachcomber is a great Transformer. The guy oozed class.

General-anaesthetically mental, and a great review.:smokin:

I liked that. There was that point when he says something about bugging his vacuum-cleaning mother with Beachcomber--that part was superb.
