Hasbro Transformers Dark of the Moon Autobot Guzzle Cyberverse Action FigureA fascinating thing about the Transformers toy line is that if a character is cool enough in the comic book, the toy will sell. For a lot. For Dark of the Moon, Hasbro reached into its past and brought back the Sparkabot Guzzle into the toy line after a hugely popular turn in the Last Stand of the Wreckers comic book series. Obviously, this is not a G1-style blocky toy, but is it close enough?

Hasbro Transformers Dark of the Moon Autobot Guzzle Cyberverse Action FigureThe coloring and personality of this small robot are similar to the comic appearances, but it's obviously a toy made with the movie aesthetic. The tank is a tank is a tank, but the robot does a good job matching the colors and proportions of his appearance in the recent IDW comic stories. With articulated knees, feet, and a few spots on each arm, he's not a terrible toy, but he's not a proper "classic" toy in his proportions or styling. The claw hands do a good job holding a gun, but they don't fit in as well with your shelf of 2006-present "Classic" toys.

The cardback pegs him as a fuel hog, which, well, OK. Whatever. There's no mention of "The Wreckers" on the packaging, but the team name doesn't get a whole lot of attention on regular retail Hasbro products.

The tank is as good as you might hope for, with a nod to his Japanese designation on the rear of the tank, barely-rolling wheels, and a couple of guns which can pop on the non-turning turret. There's not a lot of action in vehicle mode, but it is a nice tank and a welcome break from the cars and trucks which populate the bulk of Cyberverse so far. As a toy, I didn't have much fun with it and I assume it will be popularity largely due to the legendary status of the comic character. It's certainly close enough, but I can't help but feel I'd almost have preferred to keep the nine bucks. It's OK but it's just a pain in the neck enough where I can't say I love it. Since it started showing up more in the past few weeks, odds are you can find one.
