Transformers Cyberverse Autobot Guzzle action figure review

Transformers Cyberverse has plenty of already Deluxe and above sized guys such as Optimus Prime and Megatron but there's also the G1ish gems like Powerglide thrown into the mix. Another such character is Guzzle who hasn't been seen since his G1 Sparkbot toy. He's a green tank that turns into a yellow chested robot with some rather large limbs.

Guzzle has some pretty decent articulation for a Cyberverse like ball shoulders, elbows, hips, moving toes, tho his head is restricted to barely a swivel. His knees are jointed but more of an unfolded transformation, still they do the job. Guz's long reach is great and he can grapple other figures like a wrestler. I wish the giant cannon folded down over his shoulder but it can be swung out of the way.

Detail, detail, detail! Guzzle is loaded. His head is tiny yet you can see the inner eye detail and beak-like mouthparts. All over his body is excellent detail and on his alt mode every rivet is pronounced. His paint is pretty good too tho a wash would have really brought out the detail. Like his G1 form he has a bright yellow chest and tan/silver sections.

Tank mode is nice and compact. The turret doesn't rotate which may be a deal breaker for some. His gun comes in two parts and the larger section folds allowing it to be held in both hands, one hand, or split up on top of the tank. There's lettering on the sides and it looks like a great little military green tank. Overall he's a great little pocket-sized character like Powerglide and I hope Cyberverse starts to focus on the lesser known characters like Guzzle.
