    Nice review. It does look better than in the still photos. Almost tempted by it now.

    SAme here, Bogatan. I'm still debating the size vs. price...otherwise, it looks pretty snazzy.

    Dude, how can it be? These things looked like roadbots a couple of months ago, now they look like mini-masterpieces. I'm totally sold.

    Not a bad review, the Cliffjumper one is more clear as to how the legs transform [circumstances really made Bumblebee's incomprehensible at that point].

    Once you watch one there's hardly a point to watching the other though, as both reviews are near identical.

    How's the die-cast content on either of them? You didn't mention that.

    Furthermore, I hear ratchet joints on his legs\thighs but that's just it. You make no comments on the articulation capabilities or what types of joints are used. Those are my only shortcomings for the reviews, otherwise, ace stuff.

    Yeah, sorry, I'm not feeling so hot and the cough medicine has me a little light-headed, I fully intended to cover diecast and articulation, but had to focus on just TFing the things.

    It's pretty amazing how much better these look in hand. (Even if it's someone else's hand.) And I liked the look of these guys from the start.

    Man, I really want that Cliffjumper...A lot. Really wish I had the spending money right now.

    Peaugh, have you tried compressing the two hinged joints above the figure's knee "pads". It makes the legs above the knee much more solid, and brings his legs better into proportion. I put some photos into your Bumblebee review.

    Just like BB, he would fit in well with alts, but still not a mold I like as much as classics Cliffjumper.

    Yeah, I'm aware of the hinge in the thighs, I thought I moved it up in at least one of the reviews, but it's possible I forgot. Didn't catch the slider in the rear window, though, so thanks for pointing that out. I thought the window was sitting a little further in the first time I TF'd them.

    So does he have any diecast? I might try to snag one on ebay if I can get it cheaper than $54.99. That's too much for the size IMO.

    Yeah, the body core and the frame for the backpack are diecast.

    Thanks for the great video reviews Peaugh. I can't wait untill mine arrive from Bigbadtoystore. I don't know if the wait is worse or better now that I've watched these reviews lol. I've been so excited about these figures since we saw the grey prototype of Bumblebee.

    If you don't mind me asking, will you be doing pictorial reviews on these figures? The wait is driving me crazy. I only have untill monday but I'm goin' crazy! lol.
