Product Description


OTS-14 Steamroll Warrior | Badcube Old Time Series

ToyGeek code: OTS14STEAM

OTS-14 Steamroll is MP scale and sized! Figure stands 20CM/8" in tall in robot mode and transforms into a race car. Equipped with a high-velocity jetpack. If need be, he can switch it over to his leader to help stop enemies at their tracks. Steamroll and his brother are always ready for any challenge. They are inspired by reckless acts of courage. Vehicle mode: Unlike Sunsurge, Steamroll's supercar mode is inspired by a real-lief vehicle, yet still keeping the cartoon quality. It highlights the functional hood, car doors, and headlights. Robot mode: We've redesigned his robot mode to make it more proportional. No more stumpy calf and won't have too wide of a chest. Accessories, -4 types of arm weapons/ accessories/ tools -2facial expressions (total) -Redhot jetpack that fit Steamroll and his leader

Improvement highlights: - paint finish - rifle can be stored under the carriage - shoulder cannon stays where it was during the transformation from robot to vehicle, and from vehicle to robot. (no partforming) - vehicle doors, hood, headlights can be open like a real car - 4 'real' tires, not fake wheels - high quality silicone tires - better proportion (narrower) chest, much slimmer lower legs, and the correct look on both bots front and backside.

Note: Other toys shown are for scale/size only, and sold separately.

Steamroll is a really good figure. Admittedly, he isn't perfect and I have some nitpicks about him. For example, the gaps below the knees are a bit unsightly, the head sculpt is kind of weak. However, I won't remove a star for those downsides, because I don't think they detract from the figure very much as a whole.

The engineering on this figure is excellent. If you like intricate transformations, you will love this figure's. Though some videos make the transformations look a bit messy, the way all the panels shift and plates untab and retab feels really good in hand. Furthermore, all the tolerances are perfect. Few things feel too loose, and nothing feels to tight.

Furthermore, the transformation feels very rewarding both ways. Everything locks together correctly in robot mode, making for a good looking, solid robot with a good presence. There are some complaints that the back and chest assembly are floppy, but if the roof is pushed all the way in on its sliders in robot mode (it takes a little force) everything will secure perfectly. The joints are sturdy, and the figure feels good in hand. The posability isn't quite up to the current MP standard, but it is still very good, and the figure is fun to reposition and pose. I have MP Sunstreaker and although he is the better figure of two, I don't find him anywhere nearly as fun to handle as Steamroll. He just has this inexplicable 'fun' quality that prevents me from keeping my hands off him. The Paint is also very good. It looks as sharp and as pretty as the stuff Takara uses, but I've transformed the figure five or six times now, and I haven't seen any scratches or scuffs.

Where the figure really outshines it's official counterparts is the altmode; it's fantastic. It captures the curves and proportions of the Countach in a way that neither MP-12 nor 39 have. And everything fits together so perfectly that it looks more like a scale model than a transformer. The doors and headlights even open!

Some have said "What's the point of this figure?" as MP-12 is already beloved and it's likely we'll be getting a new MP Sideswipe soon. But, I think this figure has a fair reason for existing. It is a good middle ground between the older and newer MP styles, with an ultra realistic car mode and a cartoony, minimalistic robot mode. Based off of what Takara has been putting out recently, I speculate that this figure will be a lot more fun to handle/transform than whatever new MP we get in the next few years. It's really that good.

With all that Said, I cannot recommend Badcube Steamroll enough. I honestly think this figure may be the definitive Masterpiece Sideswipe. Definitely get this if you're a fan of the character, or just like MP-engineering in general.

I saw Bobby skullface's review complaining about everything about this figure but it's a very well built, aesthetically looking spot on Anime version of Sideswipe. My only complaint is absolutely no metal parts except the screws that hold him together. It looks leaps and bounds way better than Takaras Sideswipe but when it's in my hand there's no weight. I mean for the price he should have some metal parts. Other than that he's awesome.

It's about time. MP Sideswipe and the other 3rd party options never looked right to me, but I was hesitant to pick this up because the height is listed as 8", making him much too tall to match Hasbro/Takara MP scale. I finally gave in and reserved myself to displaying him on a separate shelf. However, I was thrilled to discover that he's actually under 7" in height, a hair taller than MP Prowl. So, if scale is preventing you from pulling the trigger on this one, you no longer have an excuse.

Transformation is a little weird (lots of slider joints) but the results are great. This is a very cartoon accurate Sideswipe. Paint and sculpting is fantastic. Original MP Sideswipe is still good, but I'd say this is easily an improvement.

Now this the definitive MP sideswipe. Paint is great , transformation is complex like most Badcube figures but very satisfying. Love the jet pack accessory and has a better face sculpture then TT( in my opinion). Plastic is good quality but no die cast parts that i could tell.

I will say that the side profile is gappie and legs are hollow but thats just nit picking at this point.

Shot out to TFsource for lighting fast shipping arrived in 3 days standard ups ground. Keep up the Great work team.

Waaay better than mp sideswipe

While Steamroll's sculpt is much better than MP Sideswipe, there are some shortcomings that I will point out:

Take a very close look at the gap that exists between his knee-cap and his shin. It looks like his knee-cap floats above his shin.

Also, look closely at his feet from a left or right profile and how they are connected to his shin; they also have no real heel. I would describe his feet as looking similar to a rectangle floating on the edge of a right triangle.

I point out these criticisms, because had a noticed them in the photos, I would not have purchased Steamroll. I would have waited for Fanstoys or X-Transbots to produce their version of Sideswipe.

With some of these figures it definitely seems that each successive version is better than the one before. For example, X-Transbots' Apollyon was the definitive Megatron until, that is, MP-36 Megatron was released.

If you are considering purchasing Steamroll, I recommend waiting until another company's version is released—this seems to be the way to go.

Each BadCube figure I've gotten has improved from the previous release in terms of materials and tolerances. Steamroll is their apex. He is a symphony of snug tabs, hinges with just the right amount of friction, gapless seams, and solidity in both modes.

The robot is slender. Just the right amount of cartoon accuracy without feeling unfinished (like MP Sunstreaker). The face looks a little pinched in photos but totally allright in hand. He poses easily with just-stiff-enough friction joints instead of those hexagonal hinge-breaking joints Hasbro has been using. And I love the softly-clicking shoulder ratchets. Mmmmm.

(Bobby Skullface complained of the torso feeling floppy. This is because he transformed the backpack incorrectly. You do have to rotate those grey tabs in as much as possible, then finagle them past where they catch on the sides. This is the only annoying part of the transformation for me. When you push the whole assembly in, you should see the pins go all the way down the slider, not halfway. Once you do, zero problems.)

Car mode is outright BEAUTIFUL. In side-view, he blows MP Sideswipe out of the water. Top view they're about equal, I think. The pieces fit together so well the seams barely show. In fact, that's one of my only problems: getting a fingernail in there to open the doors is a pain in the butt. But the blue, red and black look perfect (I can forgive the visible missile launcher) and the clear plastic parts are just thick enough I don't worry about them breaking. That holds true for the whole toy.

Steamroll is very lightweight, but all the plastics have a quality feel. Much as I adore Sunsurge, I worry about breaking him every time I transform him. With Steamroll, not only does the plastic feel flexible-but-sturdy, no part of the transformation requires the kind of force that'd stress it anyway. This is millimeter-perfect design. The kind of engineering that takes into account paint thickness when making tabs fit.

Simply put, this figure feels like eating a high class meal in an elegant restaurant. The difference between challenging and frustrating is that, for as complicated as this transformation is, the precision makes the whole process feel rewarding.

(Plus, flip-up headlights! OMG!!)

My God... He just FEELS so much better than the Masterpiece. He's... Solid. Everything locks in place. No gaps. The weapons store in vehicle mode. You get a ridiculous amount of accessories. I am so impressed.

The transformation is far more complex than Takara, which is what sold me on the figure. It feels like a bloody mess at first, but a gorgeous bloody mess; you'll have it down after one transformation.

I cannot stress how much better a figure this is overall than the official Masterpiece. I've had both. My official broke on me a few days ago, so I ordered this. I'm so glad I did. This Sideswipe is an absolute delight, and I WILL be ordering Red Alert now.
