Overview: Dust up is one of the four ground vehicles that forms Victorion. She is based on the Dead-End mold but there is some remolding done to the hands, chest plate, and head. Other than the twins she is probably the most feminine of all the molds. According to her lore she is probably the most hot headed of the Torch Bearers. Personally, I like this figure. She is a very welcomed addition to the Autobot female side of the house.
Articulation: Dust Up contains everything that you would expect from this line in terms of articulation. She has ball joined shoulders, hips, and neck. Her knees and elbows comprise of a pin joint. And she unhindered waist swivel. She unfortunately does not have a wrist swivel but there are bicep and thigh swivels.
Build Quality: Build quality is ok but there are signs of mold fatigue. So, some components may be a little loose or the legs may not hold together well in arm mode.
Paint: Paint is pretty good on this mold. She is mostly comprised of teal and red with silver for the windows and Cybertronian writing. The wheels are nicely painted a silver.
Accessories: Due to Dust Up’s main accessory forming part of the combiners sword I will talk about it during the main combined review.
Transformation: Transformation is simple an effective. After handling, several of her mold brothers and some Titans Return figures the transformation is not very exciting. It does get you where you need to go for a figure that must handle essentially four modes.
Final Thoughts This mold has been used to death but oddly enough it does what it has to do. I have, I believe, six of these molds. Other than that she makes a good addition to the team and is far from the worst mold that comprises the combiner.
