    Yeah, the lips look pretty ugly. I don't get why they changed the face sculpt from the prototype.

    Also I may consider painting his eyes; I really hate it when Hasbro/3rd parties make the eyes look dead.

    Optibotimus Reviews: iGear MW-03 Hench (aka Brawn)

    Enjoy!

    Video Review of the iGear MW-03: Hench (aka Brawn) - YouTube

    UPDATE:
    Very interesting...iGear appears to have misassembled Hench. If you get him, you need to reverse his legs. Pop them off at the balljoint and put them on the other side. Then...the waist actually rotates. You need to then rotate the waste around 180 degrees. This will line the legs up properly so you can transform him the usual way. Hope that helps guys and thanks to everyone that helped me with this by pointing out that it was assembled incorrectly.

    Great review but ARGH you did it too. The legs are transformed incorrectly. They rotate to make the "exhaust pipe" end on the inside of the foot and helps with balance. It doesn't make it perfect but it does help. The rotation will also allow the ankle joint to work properly.

    Other than that, loved your enthusiam and who doesn't enjoy good ol' 1080HD o vision.

    HAHA I honestly had no clue that was the case. Someone pointed it out that it was assembled wrong. The legs need to get swapped and the hip has to rotate...but you're right, it is wrong. But it was put together wrong..i can't be to blame! :p

    I am still waiting for my tracking to become active from iGear so I can't speak from first hand experience.

    What is misassembled? I watched caked-up's review in which he spins the waist around and the legs end up like they should. Specifically, what am I missing visually that would make this all make sense?


    P.S. I am not attacking your review, I thought it was great aside from the leg thing. I am genuinely curious as to what is going on with the legs.

    P.P.S. Nevermind, I see one side has a giant screw hole so there is an assemble error. At least it is an extremely easy fix.

    The legs are on the wrong sides initially. You need to swap them with one another so that the waist rotation keeps exhaust pipes on the inside, rather the outside

    Exactly. Production error =/= mistransformation.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll have to make that leg swap if and when my Hench ever actually shows up.

    Optibotimus, thank you so much for looking in to the leg issue instead of just carrying on like there is no way you could have done anything incorrectly. Although you did not mistransform the piece you did recognise the leg issue and passed that information on to your many many viewers, that there is a reviewers true fan service and that is a true sign of a great reviewer.

    I really enjoyed this review, keep up that enthusiam.
