Hasbro Transformers Robots in Disguise Legion Class Thunderhoof Action FigureOne of the many delights when a new Transformers series hits is seeing the voice cast. Guess who was my favorite? You guessed it, Thunderhoof - voiced by Frank Stallone. The tiny Legion-class toy is just one of several - you can also expect to find One-Step, Warrior, and Three-Step figures. And Tiny Titans. I'm sure we'll see something else eventually, too.

This tiny Decepticon borrows animal elements for its robot mode, specifically adding antlers so someone can giggle about John Deere or some such. In the cartoon they play this feature up so Thunderhoof can impersonate a piece of local folklore, but you'll just appreciate that the plow and antlers successfully serve a dual function.

The 2 3/4-inch figure is pretty good - or at least, it's bad in any obvious way. Small fists cap off short arms with no elbow articulation, but such movement on a toy of this size would be unusual. He does have knee joints which are necessary for transformation, just like pretty much every Legends/Legion-class figure. I may be exaggerating slightly, but this figure is a nifty and totally surprise-free toy. The head looks good, the eye are painted cleanly, and he stands without a problem. It's a great pocket-sized version of the giant villain, which basically means that anyone looking to reenact the cartoon has no reason to buy one.

As a tiny tractor, the vehicle is smaller than a business car and features rolling wheels with no real action features. It's not unlike the rest of the vehicle modes, it doesn't do much of anything beyond look neat. A Decepticon symbol is visible as a scannable sticker for an app-based game I have yet to try, and silver deco over each wheel looks pretty spiffy. It's not true to the animation model, but hey, at least it looks neat. The transformation process is kind of a pain - the leg on mine kept popping off. I don't expect I'll play with it much.

Scale continues to be an issue if you want big Autobots and bigger Decepticons. With limited articulation and cheery blue plastic, this is a great looking figure - and one that doesn't immediately fall in to the usual spectrum of "good guys are primary colors" that we frequently see in these toys. Given the increasing price of this class it's hard to really give you a reason to buy this one when the just-released Warrior-class toy costs about twice is much and is several times more massive, but hey, I don't know what your toy budget looks like. I don't hate this figure, and while it's impressive for its size class I hesitate to say it's a thrilling deal for the asking price. I think I got my money's worth, but I have a hard time believing Thunderhoof and I will be seeing much of each other after I finish writing this sentence.
