    Wow, all I can say is Wow. This is only the second main line TF I have bought since RID that I can say I am truely happy with, infact thrilled with. (The other is Cybertron Prime, well after I filled off the face plate lever and glued the face plate up to get rid of that sorry ass mouth)

    All in all I hope this is an indication of the way Hasbro is going with the line.

    Just bought CYB Downshift tonight and I can agree 100% with Shin-Gouki! I don't care too much for the claw gimmick, but the rest of the toy kicks. I esp. like how the missile launcher guns mount on his shoulders This is hands down one of the best deluxe sized TFs to come out in the last 10 years IMO. Go out and buy it!

    I can honestly say...I can't wait for the repaint. I looove this mold. I like the color as is, don't get me wrong. I just like the mold so much that I'd have no problem buying it again...or a third time...or as a future Botcon exclusive...

    I was watching top gear last night, and the young skinny guy had bought a hemi charger in the color of downshift. I was like YES!

    I haven't bought a single Cybertron figure since the first Cybertron Hot Shot came out. Yesterday, I stopped by Target and found Downshift. This is the first Transformer in the Cybertron line that I didn't have to think twice about. Picked him up and bought it. Best buy definitely.

    I just got him tonight, and he absolutely ROCKS! Agreed that he is the best deluxe to come out since RID. Heck, he may even be better than anything released in RID.

    Yep for the first time since RID that a mainline TF made me go Gimmie!!! I too actually look forward to repaints of this one. Even though the Claw Gimmic is lame the place for the key is HIDDEN!!!!!!!!!! That RULES!!!!!!!!!!

    Hell, yeah. I had to actually look at the pic/instructions to figure out where the hell the slot was.

    Then I *insert 3 minutes of Cyberkey footage here* once and put the key in the ever-growing pile of ones I don't use.

    Saw two at Target the other day and decided to go back and get one. He was gone just like that. Wow. But I found one at TRU. Very nice design. The color's okay. But like some, I am anxious for a repaint version of him. Agreed about the claw gimmick and key though.

    Just to confirm, he's a Hasbro exclusive right? No Galaxy Force version?
