    yeah its really too bad the Alt mode is compromise since I actually prefer this bot mode design compared to the leader.

    *sigh* Yet another person whining about the gun pointing backwards in vehicle mode. That seems a little harsh to claim the toy isn't show-accurate when he seems pretty close to his animation model. I've stopped listening to complaints like this along with the 'Grimlock shoulders' issue. Ignore, people.

    for me its not so much the orientation of the gun as much as how the Alt mode is put together - I have the toy - it just doesn't stand up to the same quality as the rest of the figures in general - I have 4 others.

    its something that u can get over once its in ur hands, but it seems like such a missed opportunity, especially in light of the recent shady Alt mode movie megs.

    I agree with him about which way the jet should face - forget the gun, it just looks better the other way around. It even has the single landing gear on what I call the "front", like almost every other jet toy in existence.

    It makes no sense to face it the other way. Cartoon be damned, gun facing forward is the way it should be oriented, and that's how I fly mine around the house.

    Other than that, he's a whiner. Megs is awesomeness.

    Ugh, not this again.

    It's an ALIEN jet, it's not supposed to look like a real jet. Atleast it looks like something. I'd be a little dissapointed if it wasn't since it would make no sense whatsoever. I do echo the "gun faces forward" statement, though. But really, it's a simple matter of rotating the fiugure, hell, you don't even have to go that far, depending on whereyou have the figure sitting.

    Although I don't get where "Fatguy" gets at saying it's so inaccurate to the show. Is he talking about the jet mode? The robot mode's pretty spot-on except for the shade of gray and the head dress thing.

    However, inlight of the "preview" pack and the Leader megs, I'm skipping this fig big time.

    The gun faces backwards because in "Jet" form it becomes his engine. I think it's a good way to make his weapon practical in both modes. In robot form, blaster. In vehicle mode, engine. It's not show accurate, but it works.

    This is my first time seeing the voyager, and there are many more problems than the way the gun faces in hovertank or whatever that is mode.

    Well I think it actually looks better in reverse, so that's how he'll be in my house. Pretty un-aerodynamic when viewed correctly though.

    im not sure i like the way the gun is attached to the arm, its a bit clumsy, or rather its very clumsy. a simple peg attachment with the option to put it ion his shoulder would have been so much more effective. this and lockdown are the two toys i will likely skip from wave #1, aside from those two im looking to get all the others so far seen of the core lineup.

    OK I guess. I like the bot mode, but the alt mode is terrible. I kinda want to pick him up, but I want to see the Earth mode Megs before I make my choice.

    Maybe I'm alone in thinking this but how come nobody scans boxes and card backs instead of trying to take pictures of a flat surface.

    Yeah, Straxus is a great idea; good thinking!

    Looks alright, but the tiny upper legs really put me off. I prefer the deluxe batle begins version. Plus, the cannon isn't so oversized, and can be removed. Shame about the paint 'damage' tho.

    I really like his robot mode (especially the translucent red plastic and gold insignia-I'm a sucker for translucent plastic), but his alt mode looks like crap. At least with movie Megatron you had some vague idea of what he turned into.
