I've not seen a thread kicking about so I thought I'd start one. I finally picked this up today, a bit belatedly, it boy was it worth the wait. The chopper mode is solid looking. It's quite bulky, but in a good way. It's well armed - apart from the rocket launchers (which have 5mm pegs and 3mm clips on ball joints - lovely touch) each wing has non firing rockets and a machine gun. The nose has a sensor pod that can rotate (another lovely touch). The main rotor spins nicely (and has a catch that stops it after a few rotations) and the tail rotor is molded. Transformation is as you'd expect. Robot mod looks really good - the rocket launchers can be held as guns or plug/clip on in about half a dozen different ways. It's posable and the big feet give it a large scope for interesting stances. I'm not a large fan of the head, but then I don't hate it either. It's middle of the road. My only complaint is that the Hasbro photos we've seen thus far had a lot more dark colours, which on the actual release are replaced with brown plastic. One of the best deluxes we've had in ages. Easily the best deluxe helicopter we've ever had (although that's not really a title with a lot of contenders). I look forward to any repaints that come out.
