New Age H1K Critter

After receiving Harry and pre-ordering the Path Finder-inspired H6B Max V2 I decided that I needed Critter as part of a New Age GoBots collection.

Critter is inspired by the version of Bug Bite that was included in the Botcon 2007 box set.

The Box

Critter’s box is based on the Generation 1 Decepticon packaging.

In the box is the pistol (in silver this time!), jet pack (identical to Gremlin‘s) and instruction sheet.

The molded details on the pistol are much easier to see in silver.

The Robot

While I broke out the macro lens for Flipper, I never photographed alternate views of the robot mode.

A better job on the details than my copy of Flipper.

According to Ben Yee, Lanny Lathem intended the tattoo as “a highly stylized version of the Decepticon insignia.”

The Volkswagen Bug

Like Flipper, Critter’s black shoulders stand out in vehicle mode but, with the black windows, they don’t clash as badly.
