    I got mine not too long ago, because of hasbro's being announced w/o chrome, and I likes the shiny bits. cost about $55 from singapore on ebay, but all other online stores were sold out. guess you just have to ask yourself how much you like chrome. as far as a figure himself goes, I think he's pretty neat, though getting the back part of him to stay correctly in jet mode is rediculous and doesn't make much sense. he's really posable in robot mode, so I like him a bunch.

    Yeah... Really easy...

    Another thing you might want to consider:

    The GF version has an error on his nose piece on his face on mine... There is a bar there and they didn't tack it down correctly... I've heard and seen others with the same problem as well...

    Other than that, he's solid... :thumbs2:

    Yeah, the nose bar is a common fault. It's not that noticeable though, I never even knew until I saw pictures of the correct one.
    He's a great TF though, I think you'll like him. Awesome jet mode, very cool robot mode and the Sonic Convoy combo is pure awesomeness.

    Because I don't like chrome over large areas. When it flakes, it looks like crap and when it doesn't it looks like those KOs you find at BigLots. I can take chrome accents like on Soundwave and Noisemaze, but that big chrome chest is asking for trouble.

    Unless you play with your Sonic Bomber like a full-on retard, there's no way it's going to chip.

    I've got a complete set of Transmetals. No playing with like a full-on retard. Sitting on a shelf for a bit under a decade. Chrome flakes and peels off them like a bad sunburn. Same with a Beast Machines ultra Jetstorm. It doesn't take play like a full--on retard to chip chrome. And I still think that much chrome is excessive and KOish. Accenting like on Soundwave and Noizemaze looks good though. And I'll grant that the chest would have looked better painted gold than yellow (which I'll likely do to my Hasbro Wing Saber), but I'll take durability over excessive shiny.

    Well the chrome on Sonic Bomber is very durable. Even after sticking the swords into the handles and pulling them out many times there has been no chipping around the peg on the sword.
