    Looks good in robot mode, but the vehicle mode is kinda "meh" from my point of view.

    That's decided my buying decision for this set. I'll pass.

    That has got to be the oddest head on a Transformers figure since the original Pretenders had transforming shells.

    I mean, when I think "transformer face", the color tan doesn't exactly come into mind...

    It's okay. Would've much preferred an inner-bot from Cyclonus, but still, not bad.

    good lord... that just... creepy. Was hoping for something like his IDW appearance, oh well-kinda glad I passed on the whole set now.

    Oh, and if you dont like the vehicle mode, transform the wings-just swing them out. makes for a cool forward-swept appearance.

    Nice! Metalhawk is a Mega Pretender now!

    3rd parties really need to make a replacement for the "drone" that becomes a robot too.. (for Metalhawk, Thunderwing AND Black Shadow).

    Good on them for sticking to the Pretender shell. Now he can fit in with the other Pretender bots that have been released, since they're the shells, also. Good that they went with a more cartoon face. I really want it now.

    I can't decide how I feel about it. The colors are beautiful and it makes the jet mode really pop! I was never into the Pretenders so the human face will take some getting used to.
