Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Autobot Outback Action FigureWhen it comes to retools, few figures are as much of an obvious choice as Autobot Outback. Sold as Brawn [FOTD #1,705] in a previous life, the not-quite-Jeep got painted brown and given a new head! He doesn't have the gun from G1 Outback, but the silver head with blue optic visor is present to scratch that "good enough" itch. I'm sure Superfantoys or some company will make an upgrade part, anyway. (And if you want a G1 version, Walmart's got a reissue.)

The robot mode is Brawn with a new chest tampo and the appropriate Outback colors. This means you don't quite get the boxy, hunched-over look from the original toy - but that's an improvement. He has 13 points of articulation and 5mm fists for any other weapons you may give him. A bit of truck kibble becomes an arm shield or blaster if your imagination permits, but it's just kind of in the way and rather ugly. You can leave it off, and that means you get a pretty good robot that's sure to qualify as a good enough update of the original.

Transformation is a test of your fortitude. If you can't transform this one on your own without instructions, you shouldn't be allowed to buy any other toys - the legs fold back, the arms tuck in, and presto - you're almost done. Plug in that arm shield over the back, and you're done.

The vehicle rolls, but offers little else other than being a cool vehicle with an Autobot logo. You can pop open the top to store Prime Masters or Titan Masters inside, which is a lot of fun if you like figure and vehicle play. It's kind of fascinating that while the vehicles from action figures diminished in other Hasbro (and Mattel) toy lines, they flourished in Transformers - a line which generally eschews that sort of thing. It's fun enough, and a good update of the original.

If you're a fiend for Minibots, you should already have bought this. Like Brawn, it just works - it's just not terribly innovative. It's perfect for what it aspires to be minus that gun for the roof, so if you want an Outback it really ought to be this one. For ten bucks, you may as well get one - and then start grumbling for improved versions of Warpath, Huffer, and Pipes. And maybe a Bumper for once. Oh, and a legit Cliffjumper - which oddly we do not have in this scale, nor will we be getting one any time soon as the price point will be infested with Micromasters come December.
