Hasbro Transformers Generations 30th Anniversary Megatron with Chop Shop Action FigureGenerally speaking you know if a Transformers is fun shortly after you open it, but the real test is if the toy is any good a few months down the road. I pulled Megatron with Chop Shop out the other day and wouldn't you know it, it's fantastic! The tank robot and bug bot go together well, fit fairly nicely together, plus the transformations are simple and no parts pop off. That's a huge win when it comes to toy design... your kids won't hate you for giving this to them.

The 4-inch robot has 5mm peg holes in his fists, so this small toy can use most weapons made over the last couple of decades. There's no neck or waist articulation, but you do get a fair range of motion on the arms and legs - even the Fusion Cannon has a ball joint on it so you can aim it at your leisure.

There's a fair amount of detail here, and the head is positively tiny - don't let the images above ruin him for you, the macro focus brings up flaws your eyes will never really see. Transformation is a snap - the arms fold together to make the turret, and the legs unfold to form the body. It's a great, non-H-tank design that's really welcome after years and years of those hideous things. Unlike some other toys, this one converts in a few seconds and everything holds together well - whoever engineered this deserves a cookie.

The tank has an articulated turret and rolling wheels... and that's about it. It's a nice tank. Chop Shop, an Insecticon who has had precious few toys, gets a tiny update and can transform into a sort of cow catcher mounted on the front of the tank. Clever! He can also be an arm-mounted scissor thing for Megatron. The big transformation is very simple - flip him on his feet, and he's a robot. One-step, indeed. The robot Chop Shop has moving arms, and the legs are tied to the pincers - move them out, and they open up. I like this little guy and the abundance of personality on such a small toy, so I hope we see more bug bots in this line.

I got my money's worth. Sure, it's been miserable waiting over a half of a year to get the next wave out, but at least Hasbro picked four really good characters in this line to kick things off and got them in non-traditional toy outlets like Big Lots! Thankfully Hasbro has a nice toy here, and hopefully a lot of kids got a crack at it. And now several months later, let us hope Hasbro puts it back in the archives and we don't see it on shelves for a long time.
