He was one of my favorite G1 toys and I haven't really seen one out since. And the flame sword was just too awesome. After checking out my local Target I saw they hadn't gotten any new ones in. So grabbed Snarl and Prowl instead. But looked one more time. Bam! There was one there all of a sudden. Of the Animated figures I've gotten so far (only Cybertron Megatron and Lockdown) he is the best. The sword is like a toy in itself. and I loved how his transformation was so similar to his G1 toy's transformation. I instantly remembered how the tail transformed and where the arm-sides went. The legs pushed in, the head went back, etc etc. Great toy!
