I did not have many Transformers, but I valued the ones that I had, even the ones that were sort of a disappointment, like the Battlechargers. I received Runabout as a gift for one of my birthdays and was excited to get this auto-transforming toy. I went right into the kitchen and let if fly and it popped up and….I was very underwhelmed. The pullback action was great, but where was articulation?
It was a cool idea, but not the greatest execution. Runabout mostly stayed in car mode after that day.
