You can't get anymore bad ass than that.So when I found Crosshairs sitting towards the bottom of the box Derek sent me ,I was pretty excited.Ever since Dark of the Moon,I haven't been keeping up with the toys ,so while I knew Age of Extinction figures existed ,I never paid them any mind.I'm still not impressed with any of the line ,but Crosshairs Is the diamond In the rough.I wondered how Hasbro would pull off his trench coat ,In fact I'm not even sure how Michael Bay pulled It off In the film,but surprisingly enough both made It work.
The car mode Is sharp ,and fits together nicely.Some TF movie figures suffer from pieces not clicking correctly into place leaving gaps In their vehicle modes. Crosshairs car mode doesn't.
Prior to transforming the figure ,I had no knowledge of It at all.I hadn't seen any reviews on It and didn't know what to expect from It In robot mode. Fortunately ,Crosshairs didn't disappoint!
I was a bit worried that I wouldn't have any weapons for Crosshairs to carry as I didn't see any In the plastic baggie Derek placed him In.I didn't realize that he was packing underneath his trench coat!
I wanted to display Crosshairs with my Dark of the Moon figures,but didn't like the way he looked with them.Frankly,he outshines them.Even with the modern trench coat look,Crosshairs still has a G1 feel to him.Most of these modern TF movie figures suffer from horrible head sculpts that try too hard to give them a human-like appearance. Luckily,Crosshairs doesn't suffer from any of that.My only gripe Is the lack of a pronounced faction symbol in robot mode,but other than that Crosshairs Is a winner.
