    Awesome. A somewhat lacking jet mode, but the Tank and Robot forms make up for it. Just an awesome figure, and possibly the new #1 on my list, even surpassing Leader Megatron:

    Jet mode is cool, but has some issues. The turret piece tabs into the feet to lock it in place, but doing so leaves a gap in the back of the jet:

    Untabbing it from the feet allows you to place it in such a way that there's no gapping, but since it's not tabbed in.... you get the idea:

    One thing I do like is that the cannons rotate to keep the triggers on top of the tank mode, but spin so the triggers are not set off by tabbing them into the feet in jet mode. I'll show this in the video review.


    Tank mode is super awesome. I can't say enough good things about it. I love love LOVE it. It's about the size of a softball or potato, and offers up everything you could possibly want in terms of chibi annihilation:

    It actually kind of looks like someone dropped a safe on Johnny Five. :lol

    Can you tell I love it? It's just so freaking cool, in a way that you'll only know when you have him in your hands. Also, the way his arms/hands fold up in alt mode, he's totally grabbing his own ass:

    It's like Animated goatse, but not NEARLY as disturbing. :lol 

    Robot mode is decently sized, a little shorter than Starscream, a bit taller than Voyager Prime:

    [​IMG]

    Sadly though, much taller than Lugnut:

    [​IMG]

    Unless you do some perspective work:

    Overall though, I highly recommend him, he's a great figure. And since someone asked for it in another thread, the Decepticon air forces:

    Cool, and thanks for the review. He appears to be show accurate in size compared to Starscream in bot-mode, wich is a good thing, as I plan to have them standing next to each other when I get them and display them.

    So cool, I've come really close to buying one off eBay the past couple of weeks, but each time the pointer hovers over the "BIN" button, I realize how much I'll save by waiting, and all the other Transformers I can buy with that saved $$$

    Can I join the "This is awesome" boat? I had to swap the legs after half an hour of fighting with it (nothing major) and now it's pure love.

    Jet mode is definitely weakest, tank and bot are both pretty strong. Overall a great figure, definitely fighting with Prowl for #1.

    Blitzwing may have even (somehow) convinced me to put Lugnut on my list...

    What were your legs like? I'm guessing mine AREN'T backwards, since people have fixed theirs from my pics.

    Standing upright in bot mode, the outside-facing portion of the treads were on the inner portion of his legs. You have them on the outside. Doing that quick swap fixed all my problems getting things lined up, so I'm assuming yours is correct, with the outer part facing outward.

    So... What's everyone's favorite face to use? I'm digging the Austrian one more than the other two, but they're all pretty cool.

    I use the monocle face. It's my favorite of the three.

    monocle. or the "sophisticated, distinguished, more refined" face as I like to call it.

    my BWING is high maintenance and likes the finer things in life. :)
