He is bad at being a bad guy or a good guy. But boy can he switch sides quick. Waspinator likes to move to the winning side, and he is not afraid to stab a few bots in the back to do so. Here we have the new Generations version of Waspinator. He is quite different from everybody else we have seen so far, but very fitting for a line called “Generations.” He won’t be quite so out there when I finally get my hands on Rhinox. Then I will have a wasp AND a rhino.
His robot mode is really well done. His face looks perfect. A mix of robot and bug parts. He has his wasp head split down the middle to make his chest area. You still get a lot of bug parts hanging off here and there, but I don’t think you would want to have it any other way with him. I like his weapon. It is a stinger gun. Definitely his.
It takes quite a bit of work to get him transformed into his wasp mode. Isn’t is just more fun that way sometimes? I think so. He has a gimmick function, when you push the lever on his back, his wings flap. Pretty fun, and not in the way. Just the way a good gimmick should work. His weapon is even hidden. It attaches to his abdomen and becomes his wasp stinger. Hasbro really did a good job thinking about this figure.
That is one big bug. The wasp caught the bee. Dinner time!
