Transformers: Prime Cyberverse Legion Class Knock Out Part 3 [Final]

The unexpected best weapon

A look at "Transformers: Prime" Cyberverse Legion Class Knock Out articulation design, and posability after the previous posting. ^^

Much like "Transformers: Prime - Beast Hunters" Cyberverse Legion Class Blight, four ball-type joints for the shoulders, and hips are the main articulation points of Knock Out.

Wide range of movement for the arms thanks to the ball-type shoulder joints.

Very wide sideway expansion enabled by the hips' ball-type joints.

Either leg can be bent forward for a wide degree as well. Unfortunately, there's no knee joint to give the legs better display poses. ^^;

A benefit inherited from its transformation design: either foot can be rotated downward to support the figure's stance when the legs are angled to different positions. ^^

Some action poses from Knock Out, utilizing the rather primitive articulation design introduced above:

With support using Soul Stage Act 3 Action Support Clear Type.

Without any elbow joint, it's not easy to make sense of Knock Out's arm poses. ^^; For that matter, the simplest configuration for Shockblade - as a sword plugged into either hand, is perhaps the best way to show off this figure doing something other than just standing still. ^^; The wide-angled arm spread, due to the lack of elbow joint, compliments the weapon nature of Shockblade as a sword much better than its blaster mode.

As it turns out, among the many features discussed about Knock Out so far, its vehicle mode shown in the previous posting is still the best. ^^

Comparison with other "Transformers: Prime" Cyberverse figures:

With Arcee in her motorcycle mode.

They definitely weren't designed to scale properly with one another. ^^;

With Arcee in robot mode.

With another two figures from the same series, albeit Commander Class: Optimus Prime, and Megatron, both in vehicle mode.

Knock Out's Shockblade adds another color to the bunch of "Transformers: Prime" Cyberverse weapons. ^^

With all four figures in robot mode.
The difference between Legion Class and Commander Class is instantly noticeable. ^^

With the alternate modes of the recently reviewed Blight, and Commander Class Optimus Prime from the "Beast Hunter" line.

Not surprisingly, Blight's weapon, Affliction Hammer works on Knock Out as well.

With all three figures in robot mode.

Blight's Affliction Hammer seems a little easier to relate as a handheld projectile weapon than the blaster mode of Shockblade. ^^

Comparison between Knock Out, and Blight's cards.

Comparison between their cardboard labels.

According to their stats, Knock Out is much faster, and way more intelligent than Blight, which is definitely understandable. He is not as courageous though, which makes perfect sense as well. XD
