    Paint App revisions stink...
    Compare:

    Release Paint

    vs
    Comic-Con Paint

    Still, the detail IS there - so the customizers can bring that out...

    Thanks for the update.

    I'm still getting this mainly for the Laserbeak and Dylan figures.

    And so my HA Wreckers have a Soundwave to rip apart.

    The grey isn't that bad to me... the fact he has his entire car on his back in robot mode is.

    Off my want list. More money from Prime figures :)

    It's an okay looking figure but not fantastic. Still it's better than I originally thought.

    My name is Dave, and Im a Human Alliance Junky...

    I hate to say it, but this one is a Gucci bag filled with runny tyrannosaur feces.

    On one hand, the car mode, like HA Sideswipe, is flawless, looks great, but I feel like the Human Alliance line went into the shitter when something SO sharp, does not have a base coat of paint for the alt mode. its just inexcusable, to me..

    Bot mode looks great from the front, even the legs dont look AS bad, and I was correct that when I seen better pics, the legs would look better to me, so thats cool. Then again, im thinking of 2 ways they could have been done better in my head, and I dont work for them designing these.

    I love HA Sideswipe even though there is back kibble extreme, but THIS...this turns that shit to ELEVEN babay...It looks like if he sneezed...he would blow a car off his back.

    All in all, still WILL buy, I will probably grow to love it like leadfoot, but expect MUCH bitching and ass whining about lack of paint on a more "premium" retail transformer.

    Shame to see the HA line getting the shaft on the paint job in alt mode though...just a damn cryin, ass whinin' shame I tell ya..

    What's disapointing is that at the Sandiego Comic Con his head had 2 eyes and a mouth. This one has no mouth and has shades.

    What gives?

    Gotta love how the plastic keeps looking less & less appealing as more & more shots of this guy surface. A sad brony is sad.

    I hear a lot of disappointment here about this toy.

    Good, more HA Soundwaves for me!

    I actually like the grey plastic. It's the mold itself that's disappointing to me.

    So much negativity.

    This was potentially going to be the last movie-verse thing I bought before completely switching to Prime. I MIGHT have gotten one or two more things, but honestly, this was the final straw on a overall disappointing line. Aside from Sentinal Prime (and to a lesser degree, Ironhide), the rest of the figures have been sorta eh, especially considering how great a lot of the ROTF line was (the HA and leader figures were all amazing).

    This terrible looking HA figure screams it's time to move over to Prime line completely, as obviously the engineers have done so already.

    It's another indication of the Current downscaling trend Hasbro's toys have been undergoing. heck look at the difference between Gould and sam. if sound wave had been produced in the ROTF line he would of matched bumblebee in size at least.
