It wasn't love at first sight,though.Not even close.There was a Marvel Universe Baron Zemo somewhere In that box of goodies and he was sure to be my fav of the bunch.Not the case.Derek sent Springer disassembled in a baggie.The different pieces resembled those giant ,bright colored Duplo building blocks from back in the day.Then I began snapping It together,which in itself was quite gratifying, and realized that there was alot more to this figure than "meets the eye" - see what I did there ;)
Just look at em'!I looove the pose-ability on this guy ,and much like all the other Mashers,the bright paint makes him really stand out.I would have liked for the Autobot symbol to be more pronounced,though.But that's minor compared to the overall awesomeness of the figure!
Weapons make more sense with Transformers Mashers and It's fun finding different spots on the sculpt to attach them to. I love the way Springer looks holding his cybertronian rifle,or with It perched on his shoulder !
How many times did we break our Transformers as a kid trying to get them into their alt. mode.Well,In this case,break all you want.It snaps right back together again!Not to mention,this actually happens In the world of Transformers.
Many die hard TF fans may scoff at the fact that you can't ..well.. transform Transformers Mashers ,and they'd have a point.I,personally, don't mind It one bit.I display most of my TF's In robot mode,anyways.Plus,I'm a big fan of Graffiti.My brother used to tag and draw graffiti pieces. I tried It but failed miserably.I did ,however,embrace the Hip Hop culture and even MC'd a little bit.But I digress.What I like about Transformers Mashers Is there resemblance to Transformers drawn In graffiti throw ups and pieces in the inner city. I couldn't find any images of Springer but check out Optimus and Starscream!Don't they look like Mashers?So , yeah,that's another big "draw" for me- see what I did there ;)
So there you have It.I gotta give a huge shout out and thanks to my good buddy Derek A.K.A. Orniphus who went out of his way to send me an awesome action figure package of things I needed,and things I didn't know I needed.Even though you told me not to send you anything In return ,your package,while a little delayed, Is already wrapped up and ready to be shipped.Stay tuned for upcoming Transformers Mashers posts as I'll be unboxing and looking at Megatron and Soundwave!
