Squeeks is a little robot that showed up here and there during Transformers: The Last Knight. He was a character mostly in the first part of the movie. Once things got crazy, he went to the wayside so the big bots could battle it out. I had expected to see more of him in the film, maybe in a roll similar to Fixit from Robots in Disguise.
Well, Squeeks comes in his robot mode with a trailer, an arm, and a giant gun.
The trailer opens up into a repair station not unlike Optimus Prime’s trailer. It has a weapons system in the back, a repair arm, and a red tool box for holding parts. In this case, the arm, and his handlebars in vehicle mode.
He can sit on the repair stand in robot mode to get fixed up.
When one of the handlebars is removed, the arm can take it’s place and give Squeeks an actual usable hand.
He can change out that arm for a cannon as well. This this is crazy. It also had a handle so someone else could also use the gun.
The trailer can fold up once more and become a backpack, though it does make Squeeks back heavy, so his front wheels are off the ground. The weapon system is deployed in this mode over Squeeks head.
Transforming Squeeks is quite involved. It is pretty amazing the engineering that went into making a fat round guy into a long scooter. But it works, and he looks great. The rust and dirt is brushed on from the factory, and does not look all that good.
The trailer can attach to a flip-up hitch. There are little wheels on the bottom of the trailer so it can roll. The hitch was hard to get connected the first few times, but got a bit easier. The parts hold together very well.
The only thing missing is a place to store the big gun. It is not very “disguise” like if a scooter is driving around with a super cannon on the trailer.
And if the scooter mode needs a bit of fixing up, it can fit well on the trailer as well.
I have been waiting for this guy since I first saw him online. I knew he would be a unique figure with some pretty neat transformations if he was to change his look that much. I had expected him to be slightly bigger. I was thinking he would be a similar size to the motorcycles that have come out in the Generations line. It was going to be my main vehicle for my 6 inch Deadpool.
But alas, it is ever so small. Great for comedy relief, but out-scaled nonetheless. Either way, he is a whole lot of fun to play with. Keep your scanners peeled for this one.
