Hasbro Xevoz Sledge Trooper Action Figure One of my absolute favorite figures in the Xevoz line-- particularly from the launch-- was the Sledge Trooper. Robots lend themselves well to this kind of toy, plus the insane amount of weapons could keep a kid busy for days. Not only does it include two robot heads, but it includes a rocket-firing arm, a chainsaw, a gun, an axe, multiple backpacks, a human hand, a claw, a smaller claw hand, and removable armor plates, just to name a few. This thing is loaded and it's a crying shame it didn't engage the world the way it should have.

Hasbro Xevoz Sledge Trooper Action FigureMeasuring about 5 3/4-inches tall, this robotic monster was a member of the "Biomecha," a faction on the planet Zeotopia who basically amount to cyborgs. A few were made as the line was a short one, so there's a Preda-Crawler, Infil-Traitor, and a smattering of extra repainted pieces of the Sledge Trooper were bundled with the Omega Guard figure. The line didn't stick around long.

Blue, grey, and black plastic were painted up to create this nifty monster, and there were enough moving parts to be very impressive. The larger of the two heads has a removable "mask" exposing a brain inside, while the smaller can-like head has a sculpted mouth on its face. Both had bright green eyes, which matched details on the body and weapons. A giant claw is particularly nice, a hard plastic accessory which was pretty great at holding on to other figures. Assembly is easy-- it's like a Stikfas figure, but larger, and will probably take you a few minutes to puzzle it together the first time. It's relatively simple, though, so you'll get the hang of it quickly.

Like most Xevoz figures, he has large feet and stiff joints enabling him to balance on a single foot or assume any of a number of poses-- sitting and fighting are not problems for the Sledge Trooper. You can also swap parts with other figures, but the end results look a little ridiculous. It's still nice to have the option to give him a snowman head or little vampire wings if you're so inclined, but the included backpacks should be more than enough for the average kid's playtime. One acts as weapon storage, which is nice, but you'll still want to do something in order to keep unused parts together so you won't lose them.

Hasbro Xevoz Sledge Trooper Action FigureThere's a game component and a sticker sheet for adding details to the figures, but given the nature of how these are played with I may advise you to ignore the stickers. The game allows you to build your own "die" which you can roll in battle, claiming pieces from your opponent. This didn't seem to matter to anyone who bought it, even though a carry case was built around the game concept. The Sledge Trooper was a very common release, and if you were lucky your Wal-Mart stores had them marked down to $1 or $2 within a few months of release. I hope you got one-- it's worth it! It's also cheap if (or when) you can find one, so be sure to grab it if the chance comes up.

...and with that, it's time for a break! 16bit.com is moving to new (hopefully permanent) offices, and FOTD will be on hiatus for a couple of weeks. Star Wars FOTD will continue (as the buffer was completed a couple of months back) and 16bit.com updates will resume immediately upon the office being set up. (So hopefully Monday.)
