    Poorly transformed but even then the jet mode looks a bit borked, the toy line art (to which this is very close on terms of details) looked much more neatly transformed then it does here.

    Bot mode is spot on though, very cool.

    Thanks for the pic Joopsta. :thumb 

    Also, I don't belive that's a deluxe at all now.

    Edit: Y'know I really can't tell, he could actually be a deluxe, he does kinda look it. :(

    Bot mode's sweet but jet mode leaves much to be desired. He could give movie voyager Starscream a run for his money with all that junk below.

    Transformation between modes looks like it could be quite fun.

    Bot-mode looks awesome, but the jet-mode does leave a lot to be desired. Hopefully it looks better once transformed properly. Also, this does look like a Deluxe. I was hoping for a Voyager, but I'll still get him. His tank-mode will probably be the better of the two alt-modes for him. Here's hoping for a picture of his tank-mode to surface soon.

    He looks ok, it's a shame the white isn't more tan and they've got rid of the air intakes in jet mode. I wonder if that's a trigger button for his head changing on his waist? *edit* I don't think it is.

    Bot mode is fantastic.
    Jet leaves a lot to be desired, I can only hope that the jet mode was sacrificed to make the Tank mode as show accurate as possible.

    That said, the jet mode looks hilariously mistransformed with panels and pieces all over the place. Im guessing it looks better properly transformed.

    It is quite difficult to tell if he is a Deluxe or Voyager, but I'm leaning more towards deluxe.

    Another easy buy for the animated line.

    Awesome! I was expecting the jet mode to look just like that anyways.

    Being scaled down probably. :( 

    Some suit somewhere no doubt decided that this character wouldn't sell as a Voyager (as was originally planned) and he got changed to a deluxe resulting in this simultaneously awesome/crappy figure.

    Wow, that's a surprisingly shitty jet mode. Guess it was bound to happen after all the hype & anticipation surrounding this figure. Quite the downgrade from the design line art we had seen previously.

    Well it certainly evokes mixed feelings depending on what mode it's in (quite appropriate for the character really). Doubt I'll buy it, but the bot mode should fit right in with the rest of the excellent and characterful line.
