Reviews - Armada Hoist w/ Mini-Con Refute
Great improvement, awsome articulation for an Armada fig, Shrapnel inspired minicon is not the best. Overall one of the better Armada figs
Here are the pros, an embossed insignia is always better than a sticker, pretty good posability, Great head sculpt an pretty good alt mode. Cons: The vehicle mode is a little small and theres no gun.
wheres the @#$@$%^ gun!?
smokeskreen stank, hoist rocks. what more do you need?
Hoist? More like Choice-st!!
he is a solid toy. lots better then smokescreen.
alright however i am not a fan of the minicon refute or of his digger arm in robot mode im afraid!
Its Not too bad i agree he has dinobots head instead of having a different head
they say thou shalt not covet... but this is an exception! great minicon and hoist minus 1 point for looking like gimli
great toy, bad minicon.
iwill happy if i see this hoist repainted whit light green parts and translucid colors like grey,and rename whit the name of kup.
Bought him on sale and good that I did. Hoist is not a very cool TF. Head sculpt rules, shovel action is cool, colors are ok but robot mode is too skinny and the vehicle mode is so so. Refute is ok, looks like G1 Schrapnel. An ok TF but nothing more.
How many construction vehicles does it take to get completely redundant? What is Refute? Looks like one of those monster gobot thingies. Colors are lame, and the shovel hand is kinda wierd.
As with most of you, I waited until the absolute end to add this one to TFA lineup. I was not dissapointed in the least. Robot mode has more articulation than most, and that claw of a right arm is great for crushing Thrusts coned head. Yes, Refute Bites!
This was one of those guys I was avoiding but my buddy picked him up for me for my B-day and I'm glad he did too! Vehicle and Bot look a lot more impressive in person! more posable than he looks and VERY stable, solid, a fine TF to add to your collection
I really like this guy. His colour isn't bad, and he's easy to transform. That's a relief compared to Unicron. Refute is a little weird, but I love the shovel arm. His left arm should move both ways though, but overall I really enjoyed this guy.
He was cool.(way better than smokescreen).Ausome long punchy arm.
Face looks just like BW Dinobot. Good colors, like the action arm alot. However he does come with the worlds dorkiest mini-con. My Girlfriend feels bad for how much refute blows so she takes care of him now. Kind of like Charlie brown and that Xmas tree.
great figure but minicon doesn't match him.
cool toy but he looks so mad he's cool if you think he looks weak with no guns like come on he has a freakin giant claw what more could ya ask for
i have to agree with the Dinobot head similarity, and I love it. I like the color scheme a lot (although, yes it isn't very construction like). Looks like he could do some damage with that crane arm. overall, very impressed
I agree he does have the dinobot head or appears to be the Dinobot head all in all I really enjoy this mold of him far better than his Smokescreen figure. The mini con could have been reworked
His face reminds me of Dinobot from Beastwars. I like his colors, he stands out from the other Autobots. Still, can't help but think "Smokescreen" should've been named "Hoist" and "Sideswipe" should've been "Smokescreen."
Kind of a stupid color for a construction Transformer. The vehical mode is pretty good though...i'd give that part a six.
