    I was browsing through Ebay when I found this:

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I'm not sure of it's legitimacy, but the seller has included some pretty cool in hand images in the item description, so I thought I'd share it anyway :)

    I was just about ready to post that smiley with the guy beating a dead horse. Nice find. Too bad it's not a BIN, or I'd be all over that like gravy on a biscuit.

    Looking good. Will most likely be my last DoTM purchase.

    Ughh, That robot mode looks terrible, with the hood and front quarter panels up that high. I do love the gun though. And seeing as I don't collect HA this is my only option

    Maybe it's me, maybe it's the lighting, but the grey seems even more flat and dull than on the HA one.

    Paint around the trunk looks pretty sloppy too.

    Holding off for the Soundblaster inspired repaint in the hope it looks a bit less cost effective.

    This better not be a final version or Hasbro's really declining in paint job quality.

    Love the head, the mold looks great.

    That said, he does look... beige-er than the HA and it looks awful. Especially contrasting with the silver head. For the first time I'm actually considering waiting for a repaint on this mold. It's GOT to have better colors.

    Additionally, this does really, really demonstrate my problem with Mechtech. I HATE the Mechtech gimmick with a sleek car mode like this. God, that looks awful. I would honestly have the weapon scrapped and that money spent on paint (or, you know, integrated weapons that go somewhere in the vehicle mode). Just clipping the weapon to the vehicle mode works sometimes (the Wreckers and Crankcase, also the fliers) but not on a sleek car like that.

    He looks less like a deluxe and more like an oversized mediocre scout. So disappointing. :(

    Wait, dumbbell elbows? That was bad enough on RotF Soundwave but this one has a weapon.

    Anyone know if he's got a wrist swivel or... something

    His elbows seem to be double jointed with at least one ball joint, so posing won't suffer that much. Also, it's mistransformed.
