A veritable grab bag of sci-fi tropes, the Prosecutor is hasbro's first take on the 1986 movie's robot. It's probably too small in terms of scale and scope, but it's neat. It's official. I'm glad it exists.
At 2 1/4-inches tall, it's not very big - it doesn't do much either. The head turns, and can (presumably by design) be removed for some reason. The energy blast is also removable, with both compatible with 5mm holes on other toys. If you want to do a diorama with a prosecutor's head torn off, you can do that. Why would you want to do that? Well, I don't know, but you can.
The sculpting is perfectly good - heck, it makes the toy look better than it is. The tentacle arms (a sci-fi staple) don't turn, but it almost looks like they're jointed. The tentacles are also covered in bumps for reasons I shan't speculate upon. The body is largely standard Takara/Takara-Tomy robot fare, covered in vents and grooves. It looks incredibly close - but not identical - to the characters on the cartoon, what with its ridged, Giger-esque Alien-ish dome and nasty sharp teeth. The Hasbro factor painted the interior of the mouth - a nice touch - and the eyes, but neglected to paint the face differently than the silver domed head. It's still cool.
He doesn't transform. He looks cool, though - he can't hold anything but he can stand on his blue energy base.
I assume pretty much nothing in this set - except maybe Kranix - is in proper scale, but hey, Quintesson grab bag. I don't know when or if Hasbro plans to make a bigger or more interesting toy of these guys, and while this is hardly better than a good Happy Meal prize, what matters is that it exists. We've had Scrounge and Straxus and other obscure characters, so seeing a robot with some screen time getting a toy is always a fun thing. I wouldn't pay the high secondary market prices for one by itself, but if you can get the set for $70 or less it's well worth it. Until Hasbro decides to make a deluxe-sized one to knock our socks off, in which case you'll probably throw this in a drawer and forget it exists. "A" for ambition, but it is by no means amazing or impressive - I'm just happy that it exists.
