I was also happy to discover that Takara added some bonus Stunticon stickers to the sheet. Just like with Rumble and Frenzy, I love these little bits of extra bling.
Wildrider comes with a couple different accessories. Sometimes Takara ditches the Hasbro accessories for the added Arms Micron figure, so I was happily surprised to see that they included the two katanas that came with the Hasbro releases of this mold. This time the blades are black and a bit more rubbery though.
As for the Arms Micron, Wildrider gets a gray elephant named Ozu. I really love the unmistakable pachyderm look, and I think he may be the cutest minicon in the line so far. It’s hard to believe this little guy is a Decepticon. (Reminds me of that Futurama joke: He’s an elephant who never forgets… to kill!)
According to the TF Wiki, Ozu’s alt mode is a grenade launcher. Personally, I think it looks more like an old Tommy gun with a large drum shaped magazine. I also think the Tommy gun look suits Wildrider’s overall serious appearance. He’s like a Transformers version of Buttons McBoomBoom! If only he had a fedora…
All around I’m pretty happy with this figure. (That’s probably pretty obvious since it’s the third time I’ve bought this mold.) But I really do enjoy that he’s the exact opposite of his teammate Dead End. And even though it’s not necessary, I would like to see a complete set of Prime Stunticons. Plus, elephant Tommy gun!
