This review should have been up a real long time ago, I just forgot it existed. So now that the long lost pictures have surfaced, I can bring you guys this long overdue review on one of the coolest Transformers.
Warpath likes to throw in some onomatopoeia when he speaks which is a bit strange, but then again, he is a robot that transforms into a tank. KABOOM!
Warpath is part of Hasbro's Generations line which has consistently given birth to very well engineered and classic looking robots. This version of Warpath is released in Deluxe size so he doesn't have to look teeny next to your other Transformers. Out of the box, he is in tank mode. Weapons adorn the turret area. One of the weapons even fires a long spring loaded missile!
As good as he looks on the outside, you would think the bottom would be a part-riddled mess. However the bottom is pretty clean. Notice the nice contrast between the maroon armored shell and the silver tank treads.
I'm not a fan of the one color faction logos, especially when they are black. Here you can see the firing mechanism of the weapon feature.
Transformation is pretty straight-forward but clever. Much more involved than his G1 toy. He pulls off a nice neutral pose.
That doesn't mean he has to stay that way. This guy is nicely articulated. Warpath displays a fair amount of paint apps to keep the eyes stimulated.
Not many Transformers can boast about having clean backs. Hasbro engineers did their homework on this one.
I really dug the Z0W-333 on the side of the leg which is actually stands for one of his sayings, "ZOWEEE!"
The other leg has K4-90W which stands for "KAPOW!", another favorite of his.
His head sculpt is faithful to the character. What I really love is the shoulder mounted cannon that shoots a spring loaded missile.
Give the button a squeeze and he unloads a rather long missile.
Warpath was originally hard to find, but I see recently that Toys R Us has begun stocking this guy in large numbers here in New Jersey. They must have found some old stock or Hasbro distribution has caught up.
