Hasbro Transformers Robots in Disguise Warrior Class Thunderhoof Action FigureA blue robot with antlers, and he turns into farm equipment? Thunderhoof is a bizarre and great concept for a toy, but who could provide his voice on a cartoon? You guessed it, Frank Stallone.

The Robots in Disguise version has a blue gun and less paint than the Japanese version, which has a black gun and more paint applications. Since the US version is in my hand right now and is cheaper/easier to find, I'm happy to have it. With unlimited funds you may wish to go after Japan's Adventure release, but the American one is decent enough for what it costs.

The robot is your typical deluxe fare. It's tall, with wide antlers, and it looks pretty cool. It's great to get more Decepticons in primary colors, and the various animal motifs of this line have been a lot of fun - wolf heads, lobster claws, antlers, froggy bits, it's a blast. This one is basically a clever reuse of kibble - giving the tractor's signature element a new function as antlers changes what this figure can be without resorting to the usual "remove to be a weapon" kind of function we so often see. It's a nice goofy robot - just like you wanted.

The 5mm rifle fits in his fist just fine, and carries over the antler motif well. You can also store it directly under the vehicle mode so you won't lose it - and it's out of sight for a cleaner silhouette.

Transformation was a little tricky for me - there are a lot of moving parts and some tricky folding bits that are pretty clever. You might want to consult better photos or the intructions, because knowing exactly where things go isn't super-intuitive.

As a tractor, it's OK. It folds up real nice and tight, so the vehicle mode seems smaller than a typical Warrior or Deluxe-class toy at first glance. It goes up some more, and the element on the front is rather insubstantial. The vehicle has sculpted opaque windows, but only the front one is decorated. I wish the side ones were decorated, or at least that the sides were a consistent color - it's sort of patchwork. It's certainly good enough, but it would be nice if the design was done in a budget-friendly way that could inspire that the plastic colors could do more of the heavy lifting. Beast Wars was very good at this. There's nothing really wrong with the tractor mode, the wheels spin fairly well and it's a nifty vehicle design.

I don't plan on getting the bigger version, so I'm happy with this one. It's everything I could want in a Decepticon tractor deer gangster. I like it, and if you see it cheap don't hesitate to pick one up. I don't know if I'd pay a premium for it, but it's worth retail and certainly worth any sale prices you may find.
