Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Trilogy Selects Greasepit Action FigureI didn't have Greasepit as a kid. Back then, Greasepit was a monster truck Micromasters toy that came with a gas station playset. Today, Greasepit is a robot colored like the original Micromaster that can turn into a structure that recalls that original playset. The colors, structure, and functionality aren't quite the same - but it's something!

This new version of Greasepit is still Greasepit. The grey helmet and yellow chest should remind you of the Micromasters truck while the abundant blue in robot mode recalls the original base. It's also basically just Ironworks [FOTD #2,216] with new colors, a sign, and a gas pump. The gas pump becomes a weird choice for his right fist, while the sign plugs on his left shoulder and looks like it belongs there. With about 22 points of useful articulation, it's a surprisingly good toy robot of a character you never asked Hasbro to update. It's a great update to that original Micromasters robot, giving him a bigger toy with more features and articulation.

Transformation is something you'll need to reference photos or a manual. It's a "partsformer" toy where you can pluck off the arms, legs, torso, and other bits to reconfigure into multiple modes. The convenience store, while small, is a decent update to the original toy. The colors don't quite match and a few landmarks are missing, but you do get the "Super Gasoline Z-1" sign and sliding glass doors as stickers, plus a gas pump accessory. The "gas' sign is gone, and the yellow ramp and blue roads are now grey. It's barely big enough to drive a car on the roads, and probably would've made a much better (and harder-to-sell) $30 Voyager-class toy.

A new tower mode is also present, but it doesn't look like the original with its many weapons embankments and places to put tiny Micromasters. The new figures are still big for this guy, and it's a little gnarly. The "bridge" mode is arguably a lot more interesting, and since it's an all-new mode there's nothing to compare it against. It just works. Three base modes (plus Ironworks' armor modes) make this a versatile toy with a lot to do, but it's also kind of a snooze in that it's too small to make a really good playset. As a display piece, it's just fine.

If you have some of Takara's old and tiny Smallest Transforming Transformers, those might be right at home on these tiny roads. It's a neat toy as a robot unto itself, and if you feel like connecting its base modes to the likes of Omega Supreme or Scorponok it's certainly nice to have. The original base mode is a lot better as a functional toy, but if what you're looking for is a nice robot this is the winner. I guess what I'm saying is that it's very different, and certainly a surprising new toy given how the post-animation era of the original Transformers doesn't get a lot of attention in nostalgia lines. For $20 as an online exclusive, I would recommend adding this to any order to save on shipping costs with other things you may be buying.
