Time for more Titans Return guys! In this third wave of Deluxes, there's Breakaway (Getaway), Hot Rod, Twinferno (Doublecross), and Triggerhappy. Getaway is easily the boringest of the four for a few reasons, the most important of which is that he's just Chromedome with a new face. There's been a lot of parts sharing so far in Titans Return, like a thigh or a gun here or there, but Getaway is the first Deluxe to just be somebody else's toy with a new face.
(I'd say "new head," but that's not really accurate, as only the face itself is new, and the tiny robot guy who makes up the rest of the head is unaltered in sculpt.)
Getaway also reminds us that budgeting for paint is done across a wave, not just on an individual toy-by-toy basis. You CAN add more paint to one toy, but you gotta steal it from the budget of another toy in the case assortment.
And, um, Getaway is clearly the loser, here.
Seriously, this guy is super white. I mean, sure, the original Getaway toy was a white car, but this toy is... hella white and unpainted, even beyond what the original Getaway looked like. Like, he should have at least blue arms, for starters. (Adding blue paint to his arms is the first thing I did after finishing these photographs.) And he could stand some red on the fronts of his shins. Some, like, eyes, maybe? The original toy didn't paint his eyes separately from the yellow of his lower face, but that's something that I think one can get away with better if other things on him are painted well. And, well, they ain't. So.
The best thing about him is also kind of a curse, as well. His face is a great interpretation of how he looks in the comic book series More Than Meets The Eye. It makes him look like MTMTE Getaway because, well, that's MTMTE Getaway's head. The thing is, Getaway is hated in MTMTE. He's kind of being a jerk right now. And so, hooray, own a sort of okayish toy of this incredible jerk.
Did I mention he's also shortpacked? I had to buy a set of the entire wave to get him from BigBadToyStore; that's the only way he was available.
I mean, with his arms painted blue, he's nice enough. But, like, you still have to paint his arms blue.
