    Again nice improvment in the transformation on these new legion class figures. Smokescreen looks great in bot mode. Car mode looks almost as good as a hot wheels. In looking at the final bot mode I think that hasbro could have put a little more love into this by adding ball joints in the knees and elbows. They added some knee articulation for Airachnid, why not for Smokescreen? Hmmmmm. Anyhow I like what I am seeing out of the new tiny toys.

    Very nice. My favorite of this wave. I was hoping for a good face shot.

    I posted this same video today at 10:06am - do I get a news credit?

    Regardless - love this figure's paintjob, but most likely gonna go with the deluxe mold.

    You're asking for too much, Smokescreen's transformation is already more involved than most figures of his size class.

    Thanks JC! Yeah, I just realized that the casts for TF Prime season 2 is complete for the cyberverse figures with the release of this smokescreen figure.

    Smokescreen is my favorite Legion despite his flaws.

    ^his arms don't really clip into place at the shoulders, despite there being some tooling there to sit behind the front tires. Just doesn't work well.

    ^Just got it today and I totally hear you: solidity of the figure is sacrificed by the complexity of the transformation.

    And is it just mine or did they paint his eyes to look too much like narrow slits?

    Still, good figure overall.
