    This is for the Takara DA-34 version. The Hasbro version (Target exclusive?) will feature different paint apps.

    Pros
    -unusual transformation involving limbs swapping position (à la Animated Blurr)
    -6 weapons... count 'em!
    -silver-painted head, chest plate and engines (engines have some black on them too)
    -good poseability (no waist swivel though)
    -very stable in robot mode
    -mechanical detailing all over

    Cons
    -MechTech weapon is borrowed from Ratchet... disappointing for a brand-new mold, I was hoping for something new
    -upper arm kibble can be a bit annoying
    -backpack could have compressed more
    -chest cheat (fake doors)
    -can't hold any of his weapons in his hands
    -lack of sponsor logos (not that bad though since the armored car design is so busy)

    I'll try, all the pics I took last night sucked big time because of the lighting. Colors are way better and richer in person.

    With proper masking, I think it'd be really easy to add the target logo if you felt inclined. Not sure if I'd risk it myself though.

    I hope someone *coughReprolabelscough* can fix the lack of logos. I really like the mold but he seems out of place next to the others.

    I wonder why it's logoless? Isn't it a Target exclusive, so why no Bulls-eye?

    He said that was the Takara version.

    Looks really cool. I LOVE his weaponized mode. I may be crazy, but I actually think I like the HA bot mode a bit better, but this one is still great.

    I thought the same thing, but Megatroptimus is usually pretty good with that stuff. He got the retail version, so I would assume he had instructions.

    I guess thats why Im thinking the HA bot looks better. Dont get me wrong, the weaponized mode is vastly better, but the deluxe bot mode is looking really funky to me now.

    WTH am I thinkin anyway...im gunna buy the stuff anyway...

    I like this mold a lot from what I've seen so far, and the extra weapons are awesome looking. I forgive them for re-using Ratchet's mechtech because a) he comes with so many other damn weapons, and b ) I don't have deluxe DotM Ratchet.

    It's weird but he really does look bland without the sponsor logos. Chest looks like it was painted over or something... Maybe if you added some panel lines it'd look more separated and less lonely. I add panel lines to most of my favorite Transformers anyway.

    Ugh... Leadfoot toys are so .. terrible so far...

    Still, I guess I owe it to myself to buy him. I wish the first two Wreckers didn't come out so close to each other as well. They've been incomplete for too long.

    I still don't have a Roadbuster deluxe. It just looks so bland to me, and the HA version is so good in vehicle mode! Guess I gotta get one though to have them together.
