Name: Zetoca
Series: Japanese Generation 1
Allegiance: Autobot
Alternate Mode: Engine

Thanks to heroic decepticon for loaning me Zetoca for this review



ENGINE MODE
Height: 2cm Length: 3.5cm Width: 4cm

   A black and royal blue engine with a chromed yellow block on top, Zetoca is a repaint of Rev. The yellow chrome is an interesting choice while the blue & black work well together.

   I guess the basic idea of these individually-packaged Godmaster is that he can combine with any Transtector - not just Getaway. So if you have a bunch of Godmasters, you can enhance your play. As an adult collector, this engine mode doesn't offer that same level of creativity, however.

TRANSFORMATION TO ROBOT MODE

   Unclip the black sides and fold out to form legs, stand him up.

ROBOT MODE
Height: 5cm Width: 2.5cm

   It's not really a robot, mind you. While Zetoca received no characterisation, Godmasters are essentially humans in suits, and it would be logical to assume that Zetoca is actually a human. Anyway, his suit has black limbs, a blue torso and the yellow on it's back, with two yellow protrusions visible behind his head. The face is red with some detailing, but this is obscured by the paint.

   The play value is same as other God/Powermaster engines - the arms swing at the shoulders. It's a nice colour scheme but overall an unremarkable figure. I guess it adds more humans to your Masterforce play scenes.

VARIATIONS

   None that I know of. As mentioned, he is a repaint of Rev.

OVERALL

   A good colour scheme on a rather unremarkable figure, but there's nothing really compelling here. The yellow chrome is something different, at least. He doesn't do much, but there's novelty value in an "extra" God/Powermaster minifigure. Given his relative scarcity & price, combined with his absence from the TF media, I can't recommend him unless you're a completist or really dig God/Powermasters - 4.5/10
