I was given this toy as a gift, and a very happily
received one at that! Quickstrike is true to the Beast Wars
show. His colours are correct and he is small, but not too
small. Not only that, but his snake head actually works as
a water-squirter. If you want to get really technical, you
can make him suck up water with a green colourant in it, and lo!
and behold, he'll be firing a green beam like in the TV show. The
plastic is not very high-quality and it is semi-transparent, but
even so, he still looks great.
Criticism: Really, I can't think of anything,
other than that in beast mode his legs don't tuck in quite as neatly
as I'd like, but that's really nit-picking.
Transformation: Ha! I can actually
transform this one! From robot to beast mode is simple.
All you do is tuck his head in all the way until the back flap is
upright and level with the rest of his body. Then you turn
his arm with the legs attached towards the right and they tuck in
underneath the body. His head folds into a flat little compartment.
Straighten his front claws and his tail so they are facing forwards,
put him on his belly and voila! He's in beast mode.
To transform him to robot mode is easy too. Just take his legs and
slide them out again, even if you have to twist them a little.
His robot head underneath should now be in the same direction as
his beast mode head. Push the butt-flap of his beast mode
right out and then his robot head will pop up! If necessary,
turn both sets of legs so that they are facing the right way and
there you have it; he's in robot mode.
I give Quickstrike 8/10.

Beast mode is an eagle with a wolf head and wolf back feet. This
character looks like a mythical character, not like a fuzor. This
mode is very nicely done; the only negative thing I have to say
about it is the fact that the robot arms can be seen somewhat easily
inside the flaps on the beast mode back legs. The detailing and
articulation in this mode is superb. The leg proportions are a little
off, though, as the front legs are nearly twice as large as the
His robot mode has some extras, though. His eagle tail feathers
and wings sort of stick out, and so does his wolf back legs off
his arms. His wings are supposed to show, though. His basic body
of this mode looks surprisingly normal for a fuzor. The only major
problem with this mode, other than the extras, is his little connectors
that hold his waist together can come apart easily. His last feather
on his wings can be fired like a missle if you pull his tailfeathers.
These can be fired from his beast mode, too. These also can double
as swords, but they look too stumpy for that.
A very nice transformer; one of the best fuzors.
