    That third mode reminds me of Cy-Kill in mid-transformation = unimpressed.

    Yeah the third mode is very useless, I dont know why they even claim it as a third mode but im just showing you what the instructions say. I agree, it looks silly and it looks like it got stuck in between transformation.

    Thanks for the video!! When I first saw him in the Botcon pics, I thought mmm..he's alright. Next we got some close up shots and then I said mmmm....maybe. After reading his bio I said definitely!! Now looking at the video I say Must have 2!! One to open and one to bash into animated Ramulus!! I think the attack mode IS pointless, for that matter all TFs could have half a$$ed attack modes. Still a little iffy on the shnoz, but I can forgive that, it adds character! Besides, I have a big nose too!!:D  I say bravo for the video review and curse you Hasbro!! I'll save no money this year!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here's a few suggestions if you make another video:
    - to save time turn off the camera during parts where you are opening the packaging, the part where you left the camera on the instructions was not needed, especially since youtube quality isn't that great so not much is as seen as your photos.
    - use a tripod or something to hold the camera in place, I saw some shaking and it got me kinda dizzy

    I didn't know he had a third mode. Reminds me of Kintetica.

    Can you take a picture of him standing next to Prowl in robot mode please?

    Great review man and I look forward to your reviews. You have put some of these toys into perspective for me. I just would like to comment on one thing and that is the camera person takes away from what you are saying when they comment every five minutes. Other than that, outstanding reviews and keep up the good work.

    Great review. I liked the size comparisons between characters, that is always the selling point for me. The character on the other hand, is not all that great. The "Attack Vehicle mode" is terrible. I can't believe they actually consider that a viable third transformation. Its just cheesy. Not impressed with the toy but I am impressed with the review. Thank you.

    Wow, he takes the time to give us a nice review of a figure that hasn't been released and this is all you can say. It may not have been perfect or of professional quality, but I for one am grateful for it. If you think you can do so much better, then take the time to put up your own video review. Crap comments like this are totally uncalled for.

    Thanks D-Banks, but man, giganto-pass on this fig. No show = no go for me, that's my rule, I was hoping he'd be so awesome/cooltacular that I could ignore the rule and grab him anyway. Looks like this is one Animated character I'm skipping right over.
