Crashbash is renamed from the 1988 Headmaster team of Squeezeplay. As we have seen, they take the body and change the name to the Titan Master, and then have to change it again because of copyright of some sort. Why not just go with the original Headmaster’s name, Lokos. That is a great sounding Decepticon name.
Anyway, Crashbash comes with a vehicle accessory that is a T-Rex. This is one of the most integrated figures we have seen. Most ride the vehicle, or fold up and become an attachment.
For Crashbash, he becomes the lower jaw and arms of the dinosaur. It is quite impressive how they got all of that to work.
From this mode, Crashbash with the T-Rex folds out a handle and becomes a weapon when the tail is stored away. The details on the gun barrels are really well done. I love it when the weapons have rifling. I don’t know that it is necessary in a laser weapon, but it looks cool none the less.
Crashbash becomes quite a gnarly looking head. He looks like he should be the head of Ratbat or Mindwipe, but this head is not being used for the upcoming Mindwipe. I am really surprised about that. It looks very menacing and is definitely a Decepticon.
As with the other Titan Masters, the original Master can be stored in the gun while the alternate head is being used. In this case, Grax is a part of the gun, while Crashbash is controlling Skullsmasher.
Then there is the alternate transformation. As with all of the Titan Master accessory vehicles, they made them into triple changers. This one is a dragon, complete with a little head and wings. The execution of this one is pretty poor after the great opening matchup for the T-Rex mode. Crashbash is just kind of hanging off back there, and the whole thing is back heavy. I am pretty sure I will never use this combination.
I really like this guy. The T-Rex mode is great, and the head looks fantastically terrifying.
One more Titan Master before we move on to something a bit bigger.
