Name: Bullet
Series: Japanese Generation 1
Allegiance: Autobot
Alternate Mode: Engine

Thanks to heroic decepticon for loaning me Bullet for this review



ENGINE MODE
Height: 1.5cm Length: 4cm Width: 3cm

   A mid blue, red and chrome gold engineblock, Bullet is a repaint of Lube, minus Slapdash. There's not really a not to say about this mode, other than the fact that an engineblock in these colours is highly unlikely.

   I guess the basic idea of these individually-packaged Godmaster is that he can combine with any Transtector - not just Slapdash. So if you have a bunch of Godmasters, you can enhance your play. As an adult collector, this engine mode doesn't offer that same level of creativity, however.

TRANSFORMATION TO ROBOT MODE

   Unclip the red sides and fold out to form legs, stand him up.

ROBOT MODE
Height: 4.5cm Width: 2cm

   It's not really a robot, mind you. While Bullet received no characterisation, Godmasters are essentially humans in suits, and it would be logical to assume that Bullet is actually a human. Anyway, his suit has red limbs, a blue torso and a gold engine on it's back. The face is light blue with a goggle-like panel on the eyes.

   The play value is same as other God/Powermaster engines - the arms swing at the shoulders. It's a bright colour scheme but overall an unremarkable figure. I guess it adds more humans to your Masterforce play scenes.

VARIATIONS

   None that I know of. As mentioned, he is a repaint of Lube.

OVERALL

   It's difficult to really say anything positive or negative about Bullet. The colours are a little garish, but then at this size that doesn't really matter. He doesn't do much, but there's novelty value in an "extra" God/Powermaster minifigure. Given his relative scarcity & price, combined with his absence from the TF media, I can't recommend him unless you're a completist or really dig God/Powermasters - 4/10
