New Age H5B Alonzo

Basic black is a great look for the Maverick mold!

The Box

Alonzo’s box is inspired by the 2007 movie toy line packaging and includes a huge window on the front.

It is the first release in the line that was not given a function. Even Multiverse Cyclops was had a function of “Security Police”.

There’s also a movie-style bumblebee logo on the back

In the box you get a rifle, two shoulder cannons and the same instruction sheet that came with Harry.

It is a little disappointing that they painted the weapons gold instead of just casting them in that color. The unpainted rifle handle really stands out and the extra paint makes the shoulder cannons extremely difficult to use.

The Robot

The robot mode doesn’t have any changes from Maverick with the sole exception of having Harry’s roof.

The Datsun

Here’s where this release really shines! The classic black and white police car looks fantastic.

The language barrier turns Barricade’s slogan into “to punish V enslave…”

The Name

When I first Googled the name, the most fitting thing that I saw was on the Urban Dictionary where it’s defined as “tall dark and handsome”. However, ty_starr on TFW2005 had a thought that fits the pattern better, “Alonzo references the movie Training Day. Denzel Washington played a dirty cop named Alonzo.”

The Conclusion

Although this is another oddball release like Cyclops I’m very glad they did it.
