    Just got her in the mail. She's a solid figure. Only complaint is the knee joint [see picture]
    Her neck might be an issue for some people, as it's very long.
    If anyone has any questions not answered by the video reviews, let me know. I'll do my best to answer them.

    so awesome! Only thing I don't like is the mouth, hopefully Reporlabels will release a sticker set which include lips to put on her mouth. Man I LOVE this so much

    What's the problem with the knee joint? - not enough range of motion?

    Yeah, I don't see what's wrong, either. Is it defective or something? Looks limited, but that won't bother me since I own a nail file. :D

    I think the problem with the knee joint (judging from the picture) is that it doesn't allow the leg to bend far back for some more extreme poses?

    Anyway, doesn't bother me, since I don't really pose my Transformers. Want this..might have to paint the lips myself.

    TRU exclusive, sometime between now and the end of march.

    i'm loving it, but the allure of the metallic jap versions may prove too strong for me!

    Sorry, I've been in Richmond the last two days. Didn't get a chance to get online.

    The Knee: It's limited, I'd say it's about 35 degree bend. If you file down the area behind her knee, which becomes her bumper, it could look ugly.
    Her torso rotates below her bust, so the vehicle mode canopy will catch on her backpack.
    Her exhaust pipes sit on either side of her thighs, on balljoints above her waist line. You can pop them off, or move them back. They're made of the same soft plastic they made her wings with.
    The hinges that become her shoulders give her arms a ton of range, she can touch her face, clasp her hands, and cross her swords in numerous flashy poses.

    Vehicle pics inbound.

    I'm guessing it's somewhat between a finished product, and a test model. Paint apps will be fixed by hand sometime later. I'm still considering giving her a g1 face, instead of just touching her lips. The chalk white with the blue eye piping would be stunning, I think.

    Oddly enough, Classics Hot Rod is bigger than her in vehicle mode, but not in robot mode 'cause of his shoulders/chest flipping down. I think her wings are to cover the open area between her rear wheels, and also somewhat of an homage of ol' Rodimus Prime.

    The balljoints of her hips are just socket pieces, giving her a mid thigh swivel.
    Her "front toes" are on hinges, and you can pose them downard, giving her the illusion of a full leg extension. The toes are also on a swivel, so she's pretty sturdy when it comes to standing.

    got her today thanks to ORIO, and i love her... except for her swords... they don't fit quite perfectly in her hands, and because of that both of her thumbs have stress marks... and that's after ONE transformation... that pisses me off... i'm gonna have to keep a close eye on her thumbs now...

    I'm not feeling her...
    She looks like a prepubescent girl...
    (I like my fembots a little more like Animated Blackarachnia, or movie Arcee...)
    I'll still get her though.
    (I have a fembot collection: The only rule for it is no Energon Arcee; She looks like a stumpy little girl! :eek: )

    Her proportions are not too bad (considering she's from Animated), if someone made a replacement head, I'd buy her for my Classics collection (to replace the Energon mold).
