ravimus prime's review of: Eject

Name: Eject
Allegiance: Autobot
Function: Electronic Surveillance

"Clutch hitting is the key to an effective offense."

An Earthen sports fanatic... sports cliches clutter his conversation; a suprise attack is a "fast break", a victory is a "touchdown". Few Autobots understand but they like the enthusiasm with which he says it. Could be a play-by-play announcer, if given the chance. In cassette mode, can monitor and record local radio and TV, decode scrambled signals, tap telephones. In robot mode, uses electrical overload guns. Sometimes his internal tape snaps when he's excited.

I don't know why I got this. I really don't. But I will soldier on. And as a preference, I have the painted version with silver weapons. Its variants have stickers and/or gold weapons. On with the review...

Alternate Mode:
Eject is a micro cassette in alt. mode. As you can imagine it is boxy in shape. The main colours here are blue, grey and red. On the side you're supposed to look at, there are silver details and lettering. On the other side is the robot mode's main body, which is blue and gold. As it is twenty years old, it is quite rickety. The joints separate and you can make out the robot shape. The head easily pops up aswell. Eject can fit into Blaster's/Twincast's chest compartment. His weapons can be attatched to him in this mode, but it detracts from the tape image. No poseability at all.

Robot Mode:
Eject is much bulkier than the likes of Rumble and Frenzy, both of whom look better. Big shoulder pads accompanied by thick arms and wide hips. You can see that his head is wafer thin when you turn him to the side. His legs are in proportion to the rest of his body. Eject also has huge, silver weapons thet fit onto his arms. They really look out of proportion. Still, they make him look minorly cooler. Now, for poseability. There's not a lot but more than most G1 toys of his era. His arms can move 360 degrees, and can turn another 360 at the elbow. His legs can swivel at the hips and bens at the knees. At least the legs are separate. His back has cassette details carried over from his alt. mode. Eject cannot fit into Blaster in this mode, but you can try to jam him into Twincast.

Transformation: 2. Truly easy.
Durability: 7. For a twenty year old transformer it's in okay shape. One of the arms on mine has split and is loose, but is still in place. The joints will get loose though.
Fun: 6. Nothing to do with his tape mode.
Price: 8. A few dollars complete without a box. Gold weapons go for more. But is it all really worth it? Read on.
Overall: 5. Unless you love cassette Transformers or already have the rest. They do look cool stacked up, but I only have one. Spend your money on something else.
