    Buddy, that box art is so GLORIOUS that I'd buy it even if I didn't like the colors!

    He has built-in joy-buzzers. Only instead of shocking you they blow you up! That is beyond awesome.

    I think he's pretty spiffy, but I can't afford to buy repaints of the same mold. Still, impressive color scheme.

    I also agree that this guy should have been Ultra or Leader class. :(

    People expected a repaint to get bigger? That's just funny.

    The more I see him, the more I like this new deco. Though I still may just get the original deco. I do like the name Atomic Lugnut. Makes me think even more of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress. Though that then makes me wish we were getting a mostly silver repaint of this mold at some point.

    I like it. Since I'm not keeping up hope for a larger version, I'll probably pick it up if the original version doesn't end up under the Christmas tree.

    GLORIOUS should be an adjective required by law whenever one is talking about Lugnut.

    Wrong and wrong. HE'S not too small. He's perfect size. It's just that more than half the other figs are too big.

    Lugnut is pure badass in plastic, but I agree with what someone else said, It's a nice repaint, but I can't afford anotehr fig of the same mould right now. (not right now, but when he comes out. I try to skip repaints)

    Buy.

    Colors are sooo much better. Unless a Leader Lugnut is revealed between now and it's release date, I'll be getting this.

    Question, does Lugnut only have 1 eye (the giant red dot), or are the red bumps on the sides of his head also eyes?

    From Derrick Wyatt's blog:

    "I've always thought of Lugnut as having five eyes. One main, and four smaller peripheral vision eyes. Although the other eyes are probably pretty dim, as Lugnut is pretty singularly focused."

    As for this toy, it's a weird repaint, but I think it works; still, I'm more than happy with my existing Voyager Lugnut. Could he stand being bigger? Sure, but that doesn't stop him from being pure fun in a box, and one of my favourite toys of the whole line. To those of you waiting for that hypothetical Leader Lugnut, my advice would be: stop it. Buy the Voyager. It's the only way Hasbro will know there's even demand for a bigger version of the character, and you'll be getting a fabulous figure to boot. It's win-win! :)
