    To each its own. They indeed are not close, its leagues above takaras in every aspect ;D

    Plus, if he wanted to be fair, he would have asked a replacement and done the review with that. But no.....

    Yes they are. I think it’s the best Megatron I have ever had.

    Autobots...Transform and Roll Out

    IMG_20180109_18275.jpg

    Five 3rd party bots to round out my Arkbots.

    Now just need a good Trailbreaker, Windchrger and Cliffjumper.

    Until you look at his legs. Or transform him :D 

    Don't get me wrong - I love my NE01, but I wouldn't say it's better than takara or even just as good. Takara's has some amazing engineering. If only they figured out how to make him look better from behind. And not lose so much paint from transforming. But that's what Infinite Transformation is for ;)  But seriously, look at NE-01's alt mode and try to say with a straight face that it's better than mp36's. With it's hilariously stubby stock. And it's too tall body. And the pathetic barrel extension/silencer/Laserbeak (yeah that thing went right back in the box forever).

    The legs are his only problem. His transformation is fine. And Takaras engineering goes as far as to leave it a paneled holed filled mess. Everything beneath the neck is cratered wasteland. As to the alt mode, while I agree that it doesnt look the best at least it tabs without damage and the barel is str8. Also if you are fond of engineering you would appreciate what they did with his legs despite the look ;)  Which in person is not half as bad.

    Guys seriously, I understand your passion about Takara, but best get the damn thing (NE) on hand and then speak about transformations and quality, seriously :D 

    EDIT: As if Mp36 legs are fine.

    Gears is too damn small in alt mode!

    Nice shot otherwise.

    And Hound is a bit oversized. I can live with that though as both look amazing in Root Mode (Megatron called it that, so it's the terminology that I am sticking with). Would rather the sacrifice in scale be made in alt mode (as with Megatron, soundwave and the seekers)

    Gears is absolutely adorable as a bot. Just want to grab him by the cheek and say "who's a tough little robot?". His character would hate that.

    A big problem with Gears is that, unlike 16 of the other Ark-bots, he isn't based on a specific real world vehicle make/ model. Kind of hard to scale him when the vehicle is left to such open interpretation; Huffer is the same way.

    BadCube, and it is their most annoying figure to transform into vehicle mode (however, I have never actually handled Warpath, so he may be in the running).

    He does look amazing as a robot, though, and has very nice articulation at least for Gears and his giant head).
