    I had no idea what to think when I got this set from BBTS.com but I'm glad I purchased it. The robot mode reminds me of G2 Roadrocket. Pinpointer steals the show for me though. He's a great addition and is also an example of what the PCC mini-cons should have been.

    The only negative is the weapon mode. It kinda stinks.

    I disagree. I think the Weapon mode is awesome considering it's nothing more than an oversized Target Master, that's got insane poseability. :) .

    These Human alliances are a bit like the old M.A.S.K toys! Well, they remind me of `em at least!

    This one must be... Venom?

    He is the same saize as all the other HA Basic figures. Exactly 4 inches to the top of the head (10.6 cm).

    Forgive me but BM almost sounds like the figure isn't worth getting,the ways he says the weapon mode sucks.To me regardless of his review I am getting this guy.I have and always will be a Motorcycle fan,I own about 90% of all the movie motorcycles since the first movie came out,I am am sure as heck getting this one.

    I didn't mean to come of sounding negative about this set. It's a great set and should be picked up. My only complaint is the weapon mode, which I think is dumb. But that is only my opinion and there are plenty of folks out there who will dig the weapon mode.

    First off...nice review! Gotta say that ;) 

    Now as far as the weapon mode, open out the feet and spur and just have them straight out. When you look underneath you will notice 2 rear thrusters that point down...for hovering and stability. Then straighten out the front wheels so that they look equally spaced on each side of the vehicle.

    This weapon mode was intended to be a secondary flight mode for the bike...which makes this so much cooler.

    But yeah....there are rear exhausts for flight, check it out.
