    Got a package in the mail today, and what did it contain?

    Why, Animated Lugnut of course!


    First off, his alt mode is pretty big, due to the wings and tail:

    The guns on the cockpit can rotate. Other than that, that's about it for plane mode :) 

    Robot mode is nice and bulky. Similar to Bulkhead, in that he's not a giant height-wise, but the way he folds in on himself makes him nice and hefty.

    You can see him there with the mace stored on his back and removed. Posability is pretty decent, maintaining good range of motion at all the major joints. His head and waist, sadly, do not rotate.

    Here he is with his Mace weapon.
    [​IMG]

    It's actually nifty, when you place it in his hand, a peg pushes in a post (kind of like a minicon port) that unlocks the mace's feature. When you slam the bottom on the ground/floor/table, the top of the mace pops open. Very cool.

    Here's a comparison shot with Bulkhead:

    Ready, FIGHT!

    And for those who love it so, here's Lugnut winding up for the PUNCH OF KILL EVERYTHING!!! (Thanks, Beastbot X!!)

    :lol 

    There you have it, Lugnut in a (no pun intended) nutshell.



    Video Review (overview, to make Glitcher happy :D ) is up at YouTube:

    UPDATE! Added a short video update showing Lugnut's weapon gimmick in action:

    but you didnt' mention that even though he has 5 eyes and a mouth, he apparently looks like shockwave (even with all that teal) or how even though he's clearly a jet, he somehow looks like an adult sex toy :p

    But I transformed him right so he doesn't look like a penis anymore!

    And he does kind of look like Shockwave....

    From the pictures it seems the only thing I don't like is the back kibble.
    I love the shape of his legs.

    No spoilers here please man.

    Nice review, pity that after all that speculation, the rod inside his hands is nothing at all to do with a punching gimmick.

    He looks great, really he does, but he's too damn small! Unless a Leader sized version is made ala Bulkhead, I sadly will never own him, ah well.

    Why the reshoot Peaugh?

    It was fine as far as I was concerned, you covered everything and kept it all nicely in shot.

    I doubt that hasbro will make lugs in leader scale. With bulkhead, megs, ultra magnus already on deck, and an optimus and omega supreme hinted at, that may be all the leaders that hasbro will do for the next year. Voyager lugs probably is the only option for this character. Just ignore the size and enjoy the figure.

    Thanks for the pics, and I await the re-uploading of the video review. With every figure that's leaked, june 22 can't come soon enough.
