Usually I am all about the love for the Transformers. Especially recently with the Combiner Wars and the Titans Return lines coming into play in the Generations line-up. Repugnus however is very lackluster for me. I guess you can’t love them all. And if you are going to have a miss, make sure it is a tiny Titan Master.
As with the other Titan Master single packs, you get a Titan Master, and a vehicle. In this case, we get the red and yellow Repugnus, and we get a beetle looking vehicle.
The Titan Master looks really close to his G1 robot mode. That is a plus he has going for himself. From there, they took a red and yellow robot and slapped some paint on his face. This is the worst paint I have seen in a long time.
The vehicle that belongs to Repugnus looks a lot like the beetle, bug sort of thing that he transformed into back in 1987. We still don’t know what it is. Repugnus fits right into the chest when he is folded up.
As with the other vehicles, this one has alternate modes. These are not the most well thought out modes we have seen from the line. The first is some sort of aircraft. It basically looks like someone sprayed the vehicle with some Raid, and then Repugnus went for a ride. Not great.
Then there is the gun mode. It is somewhat better with some barrels down low, and what looks like it could also be a bladed weapon.
Finally there is Repugnus’ alternate mode, as a head. That is one weird looking dude. And that is all I have to say about that.
I am glad they missed with a little guy. He can live out his life as a part of the beetle on the back of a shelf somewhere, only achieving dominance when a nuclear war destroys all life, except for Insecticons. And then they can start the process anew. I bet Repugnus wouldn’t look so ugly then.
