Video review of Mastermind Creations, Talon. Part of the Feral Rex combiner team. He is a third party facsimile of G1 Divebomb from Predaking.
My first taste of Mastermind Creations was Hexatron, Which is a very impressive well made figure, but can be a little much to handle. Now comes the feral rex team, bam! all the awesome quality and look in a smaller easier to handle package. First out of the gates (for this review series anyway) is Talon!
Talon is a fantastic transformable action figure, utilizing great build quality and design to come together in a well done package. At a rough Voyager size, Talon has a great stance and with great articulation to back it up he is a very versatile and dynamic. The only thing to watch is the balance due to the large winged back pack. Though with a little time and positioning this is easily solved.
The colour pallet is quite on topic and stands out of the shelf as with the rest of the feral-cons. A repro-labels set is available for the feral rex set that gives the wings a nice chrome touch, I may cover this in a later video. Speaking of the wings, they are pretty awesome. Multiple articulation points and an impressive wing span, the gold paint is well applied and looks great. The wing pack can also be used with the teams leader ‘Leo-Dux’ or the other arm ‘Tigris’, I will show this off in later reviews.
Talons Beast mode is fine, though it is shadowed by the robot mode. The beast mode could do with better leg articulation and maybe a stand, but that is really nitpicking.
I will cove the ‘Arm’ mode in a later review. I highly recommend picking up Talon if you want a fun standalone figure and of course in the set. For a more in depth look at Talon Please watch the video review linked above.
