Transformers vintage G1 Powermaster Joyride with Hotwire
Admittedly, I decided to use reproduced stickers from Toyhax.com to make the figure look more decent.
A reformed Nebulan thief and ace mechanic, Hotwire sees a lot of his younger self in Joyride and strives to steer his reckless Autobot partner on the right path of life.
Hotwire transforms into Joyride’s engine block.
Weapon can be mounted on the vehicle mode.
Attaching his Powermaster unlocks his transformation.
You can actually unlock the transformation yourself by just pushing on the release button.
Young, irresponsible and always thrill-seeking, Joyride pays little mind to others on the road, even innocent civilians. He fights the Decepticons purely for the fun of it and not for real causes, much to the annoyance of the other serious-minded Autobots.
Joyride stands roughly 5.25 inches tall.
Joyride comes with his Photon Blaster, that can freeze enemy internal mechanisms on impact.
With the other Autobot Powermasters (I didn’t have time to breakout the reissue God Ginrai from storage).
“Enjoy each moment like it’s your last.”
The figure was redecoed and renamed “Ranger” in the Japanese Masterforce continuity.
Wheeljack’s Lab came through again with another great-conditioned piece with Joyride.
