Reviews - Alternators Mirage
Very nice styling for both modes; love that such a compact little car becomes such a tall and sturdy 'bot. Don't care much for the loose panels, and mine also had REALLY floppy shoulders...'til I worked a little Krazy glue in. Now he's just about perfect.
Thanks for telling me Jetfire. I fixed it as soon as I read that.
Um... Sideways, you said you'de give it a 9, but you gave it a 10 ; )
Great vehicle mode. its awsome its cool its sleek. something about his robot mode bugs me. I still think the robot mode is AWSOME. I have to only give it a nine though because something bugs me and i dont know what it is. its aGREAT AWSOME SWEET COOL toy!
dont have him yet but I might get him if I ever see him.
This is a beautiful robot. Both modes are well-detailed and the robot is wonderfully articulated. However, his chest plate is very loose, and mine also has a loose hatchback. He's fantastic despite this. Get him as soon as you see him. Highly recommended.
nice i've seen a drawing of a jap hot rod redeco of him that comes with a fully posable girl figure that can sit in him
BEAUTIFUL ALT. MODE!ONE OF THE BEST ALTERNATORS AROUND.NICE HOMAGE TO THE G-1 MIRAGE.
Vehicle mode is simply stunning, and quite fitting for the character. Robot mode, Mirage stands taller than most other Alternator figures, well detailed and articulated (nothing gets in the way). As said before, the chest panel doesn't lock...so 9 it is.
Vehicle mode is absolutely stunning! My only gripe is that the chest panel and engine cover/hood are floppy & don't lock into place in robot mode. However, Mirage rocks! He's quite possibly my favorite alternator! I'd give it an 8.5 rounded up to 9.
Complaints of the Alternators line getting worse with each new mold must now cease. Mirage is perhaps the third best mold after Subaru and Wrangler. Nothing gets in the way of his poses, and he stands well in many positions. I'm suitably impressed.
In a word-AWESOME! Vechile mode is sleek and robot mode is even better. Ford GT is the lowest Alt mode to date and compliments what Mirage really is a Speed Machine. Now retool him into Hot Rod; we know how Hasbro loves to repaint molds-this would work.
Kibbles and bits..Thats what I remember from my last Alt/BT. No parts broke during the transformation unlike Meister/Sideswipe. Gun is in the back which is a first. Fragile to transform but the end result is worth it. Definitely in the top 5 Alts.
This Mirage isn't like the G1 version at all. The G1 version was a lot cooler. He looked a lot like Energon Prowl.
The prototype looks good so far, but it seems that there's a piece on his left leg which looks as if it may get in the way of knee articulation.
This guy is very cool.He's way different from the Alternator molds,and the head skupt is really cool,but his eyes are kinda big,but they fit his face.
