Transformers Generations Cosmos with Payload
New Transformers Generations Legends scale figures have been showing up in stores and we got our hands on Cosmos & Payload. Read on to find out what we thought about the pair.
The packaging is the same as the previous wave of Legends scale Transformers. The back of the package shows pictures of the figures in the bubble and their tech specs.
Here’s Cosmos in robot mode. He has all the basics from the original G1 figure, green body with yellow highlights, red head, cylindrical body, etc….
I believe this is the most articulated Cosmos that has been released (I missed the 25th anniversary one, but looking at pics of that one, I still feel this one has more articulation) The Shoulders, Elbows, Hips & Knees all have ball joints along with swivel joints. The torso and head also have swivel joints adding to the massive amount of articulation packed into this under 4 inch tall figure.
Cosmos’ vehicle mode retains the classic UFO look but it’s appearance is a bit streamlined with a lot of small details all over the body.
Cosmos comes with Payload, who’s basically a triple changer Targetmaster (All of the Legends scale figures come with a similar figure/accessory) In robot mode, Payload has swivel arms.
There isn’t much to his transformation into a Shuttle other than swinging the wings down on his back.
Lastly there’s the gun mode. Payload’s legs become the gun barrels after you slide the feet up, drop down the handle and fold the wings and arms back and you have a double barreled gun for Cosmos.
Payload works as well as any Targetmaster but since he isn’t based on any G1 transformer (Like some of the previous Legends Accessories) I find less need to use this one in my collection.
Cosmos stands taller and is bulkier in his Robot and Vehicle modes than any of the vintage or 25th anniversary Minibots. The size isn’t so big though that he doesn’t still fit in with the 25th Minibots well enough.
I really enjoy this Cosmos. I was already a fan of the character, but both the UFO and the Robot modes look great and the amount of articulation in Robot mode makes this figure a must buy for me.
