    and he bashes tfw at the same time....

    anyways a very nice figure, but what is funny in the comments someone saw a matrix in his chest, and it is clearly there, and he said "no, that is just the side windows folded in"

    dude, even if it is just molded detail, there is clearly a matrix in there

    Yeah, what's with the TFW bashing? Seems kind of inappropriate to be in a toy review.

    Yes, unfortunately I read now the entire post of Genzhao: anyway I don't care of this argument... the pics are awesome and I care only of them :)  But if it's the case of cancel this thread, I'll understand as well :)

    I have to say, G2 OP looks... less "cool" than the actual G2 OP. The original one seems to be more angular in design. This one's still cool, but the sword is more like a "dagger" now, or a long dagger. Its got more of a "toon" ish feeling to it.

    Still buying it.

    Man that figure is crazy posable. Really looking forward to him. Awesome sword to. The guys post? Wow, very unprofessional and innapropriate.

    He looks pretty small for a deluxe (next to that Powered Commander)

    Cant wait for him to hit stateside. As for the rant... Sounds justified if its true, Id be pissed too. Didnt look at all to be a crazy irrational rant, which I was expecting

    I love how someone that is running a company based on blatantly copying official product is blaming this site for 'leeching'. But don't worry. He'll edit his post just like last time when he went on the crazy-tour and everybody will be left with a more professional response..:) 

    Anyway, on topic: still kind of strange how a toy that looked so awesome in promo shots looks to be a bit of a letdown. Still decent, but not as awesome as some of the other new toys, while this one was looking like it would beat them all. Hope future pictures might show him off better (properly transformed and in better light - camera flash makes plastics look very washed and light) - not saying he isn't but you never know..

    Ok, I will echo the feeling that he's small. I still think he looks good thanks to his sword and posing possibilities, but I generally feel Primes should be bigger.

    Still looking underwhelming, but you can't win em all. Generations has been pretty good so far.

    I also enjoyed his rant at people who wanted him to post Scourge's alt mode and robot mode for the first time at the same time.

    Still,i don't see him complaining when Peaugh's vids get linked here, complete with a link to where TFW members can buy from him.

    The figure looks great, but the paint is either lacking or just plain weird. Alt. mode looks cruddy with the sharp black/blue contrast, and the flames and robot mode needs more paint apps to bring out those sholders and make the G2 details more prevalent.

    I need more G2 in my collection, so I'll be getting this guy anyway, but I'm going to have fun painting this guy up.

    It still doesn't look GREAT, but it's ok. I'll give him a shot.

    What's up with the guy reviewing the toy? What's his deal?
