    I find funny that the car mode looks more like an actual tank that the tank mode itself.

    It looks good, but after their prime I'm not touching GC. That looked fantastic too, but looking good on a shelf is not my only concern, and it failed abysmally in other regards.

    I think you are overreacting (or maybe carrying over past experiences regarding this kind of debate). I think he gave you an honest reply, maybe under the impression you were not 'aware' of the intented scale/size of this particular line, which really is IDW mp.

    But it's great you can have him in your chug collection. I also love the older anime aesthetic (wouldn't be here without it!) but personally I think a FP/MT Sixshot would be more stylized than this.

    Lots of stress marks, bits falling off, not top tier materials, poor transformation, poor tolerances on several joints. I could have lived with most of these as it did look great, as someone who likes to mess with his bots if I don't enjoy the transformation its a big turn off. I'd have likely kept it in bot mode but....
    I then had one arm assembly shear off completely with no real force applied to it while posing it. It came away from the inner part, not the shoulder joint as i'd lubed that up. That kinda ended the relationship :(

    Calm down! This line is supposed to be the IDW MP of G Creations, it is not "CHUG" but you can put him wherever you like!

    Edit: Hexatron is supposed to be his "CHUG" version...

    I like it.
    Hope to see a lot more release on IDW based soon, at this rate they can release 1 bot per year which feel unfortunate.



    Only complain from me is transformation , he is good as long as he didn't transform. - lot of moving part and very long process and risk of breakage if incorrect transformation.
    Which is fine for me, but for some didn't.

    I think this will better than Optimus because transformation should be straight forward and simple.

    Only one thing worry me is his price.

    No kidding, this is my MP Sixshot all the way. Love the IDW design over the G1 in every way. I may buy another from someone else but I have to have this one. They nailed every mode. Does such a great job of breaking up that blocky bloated G1 design seen on Hanzo and even Hydra. Its funny they are posing him with Overlord (I know why in the canon) because I get that same excitement about him that I did with Carnifex. They look a perfect complement to each other. I am going to go and review the IDW design vs G1 on a lot of figures because there are definitely more where the IDW is clearly the superior take.

    The more I look at all the modes, the more I think the car mode is my official tank mode. I wonder if it´s possible to hide the wheels and make it a hover tank.

    This. Hopefully it has a lot of nice paint decos and sharp tampos like their Optimus figure, too.

    Hope it is a pair of swords vs just one, but overall it looks really nice.

    Seriously, someone tell FT that's how you do proper thighs and thigh swivel. Not the sculpt-breaking mid-rectangle rotation crap on the Hydra testshot. :)
