    Best incarnation of that mold ever...but still I dislike that mold. Your pics make him look great though.

    That head is so sinister looking. Looks like it'd be good for a Scourge or even a Grimlock.

    I want this, but every time I have bought this mold I needed to buy a second one to replace the one I broke due to lousy panels...

    ^seems like the panels are better on this one. Though I have never broken them on the other ones I have, I can see it happening. They seem a lot smoother when moving them. Still not my favorite mold, but am happy to add it to the collection. Just need to decide if I want to slap the ladder set on a second one and display it in alt mode.

    Am I the only who can't help but feel like this guy is like Prime Rumble after he gets the Matrix? The head and color scheme are so close for figures released near-concurrently.

    Just picked this guy up today (with Bludge-tron)... Considering I already own Inferno and Grapple, plus seeing plenty of pics of this one, no big surprises here. But finally having him in hand is nice and he looks fantatic with my CHUG/RTS collection!

    I'm certain that the neck "ball" is the same for Inferno/Pyro, Grapple and Hot Spot... Only the heads have changed, so I'd assume it would fit.

    I have a question. Are you able to move the panels on his arms upwards like Inferno or are they stuck there like Grapple?

    Yes... he has the same forearms, hands, feet and moving arm panels as Inferno. I think the only parts from the Grapple mold that were used are the cab sides/shoulder wings (with the remolded bars), in order to accomidate the clip-system weapons that Grapple can, but Inferno cannot.

    Gorgeous blue, feels rich and creamy. Wish it came with a ladder but the new head makes up for it. Great G1 update.

    I love this toy. I need to figure out how to put a ladder on this one so they all can be different.

    There's a TFC kit that has a ladder accessory for this mold.

    Got mine yesterday, I sanded the panel areas where the hinge goes through to prevent breakage. I always have this insane fear I'm going to break it when the panels feel hard to fold. It has happened to me with Inferno, Grapple, and most non conehead classics seekers, and I bought replacements for all of them too.

    No offence intended, but I think it's you... maybe a lack of finesse?
