    Got this guy today as well!!!

    This is a simple repaint of Voyager class Animated Lugnut, and it rocks! It is such an oddball repaint and I love the colors.

    His main color is like a metallic teal which really shines. Other colors are black, yellow, and 2 different shades of green on the hands, mace, and cockpit.

    The new CON symbol on him is interesting, it has gold as a background with a black CON symbol, looks kind of nice.

    Here is his mace with hazard symbol:

    Looks awesome in jet mode, very G2 ish to me with the colors and shark teeth. And as of yet I have no problem closing and keeping the cockpit closed....

    CON symbols on the wings are gold and black as well:

    In short, great repaint of a great figure IMO. If you like this mold, repaints and the colors then I recommend him. If you have the original and iffy about it, then I would probably stick with the one you have unless when he comes out and you take a gander in the store, you may be persuaded to pick him up since he is kind of funky!

    He looks pretty cool in the new colors! Are the bio, quote, and galactic powers different on the back? If so, would you mind posting a pic of the back of the box, or type the new writing? Thanks for the review!

    I didn't think those colors would work in Lugnut but they came out surprisingly well.
    I love his yellow head. It reminds me of Energon Sixshot.

    I don't usually buy more than one of the same mold, but this is pretty good looking. I think I'll get him.

    I love how they painted the main eye to fix the "no lightpiping at all!" problem.

    Anyway, Deceptigtar, as you know the first release's head and cockpit parts had kind of a sweaty-feel looking plastic, can you see if the plastic feels, eh, how to word it, more solid with the new colors?

    That's good, pretty much confirmed that I'll get that repaint, for some reason everytime I look at my Lugnut, it just looks like he came back from a battlefield and he got all dirty and smokey.

    Thanks for the review! Can't wait to get this guy! If you have the original Lugnut, could you post a pic of the two of them side-by-side? Thanks!

    I really like that color scheme, its so twisted, but I don't care much for the mold.

    its fine to me, as is my original Lugnnut. Has the same fixture as the first one, I just think it has to do with the size of the locking pegs, if its too small it wont hold.

    Check the first page now.

    I'd be more interested if the yellow was a bit brighter. It doesn't look very Atomic except for the yellow stripes on his hands/cannons.

    I love the black and gold emblem on his chest.

    Any QC issues? Does the cockpit close tightly without any extra pressure?

    EDIT: Ya know if I'd just read between all the pics I'd have my answer....
