    Hopefully the godbomber can transform to robot too. Not just an addon for armor only...

    I think everyone is hoping they've revised it to do that and its why we haven't seen it since those ar cg teasers. Would explain why this guy has been finished first and releasing without the set at all. This way if/when they do a black Godbomber they can include weapons and stuff with it to make this guy that much more bad ass.

    I'm totally in favor of more pack-in weapon kits. Anything that makes the figures in this line more playable will get my money.

    Saw the review. nope. I'm good. way too damned tiny for my taste.

    I'm gonna wait for a much larger sized version.

    God, I can't wait for this guy. I'm so glad we finallly have a PMOP/Ginrai that really captures the "super robot" vibe in its proportions and articulation.

    Also, I don't mind the size at all. For a line so focused on articulation and playability I honestly wouldn't want this guy to be overly huge and unwieldy.

    Hmmmm..... the cab/figure size is a little off putting but the combined figure looks great. Maybe seeing it in Godbomber mode will be the push I need to order it.

    He is on the same size as the rest of them (well ok he loses 2 mm :lol ) but compared with the fact that he does everything else better, I know for who I am rooting!

    He doesnt have a base mode though does he?

    Dunno if I should just cancel my preorder for the Siege On Cybertron box set and use the money for this or get the box set and sell off what I dont want (which right now looks to be everything but Pounce) and then buy this with the money from that....

    not shocked about the size we've been seeing photos next to striker and other toys for weeks. Also I'm kinda done with large toys I just dont have the space and too many make my room look like I toy store.

    Thanks @Peaugh for putting up the review! I've been looking forward to this since you put the pics on twitter.

    Can you take pics of Thunder Erebus in vehicle mode vs the Hasbro or Takara PMOP? I'm just curious how the size compares.

    Damn, I was really trying to resist Thunder Erebus and was holding out for Thunder Manus but he looks SO good...

    As per Peaughs request some digital Fireguts colors. I also would love to see MT do this obscure deco down the line.

    i'd really like to see how the combined version and just the cab robot look with some iron factory stuff like magnus, windblade, blitzwing, and scorpinok...especially scorpinok in combined mode.

    i think that got debunked so that's not happening....just the walgreens one

    Hm, I am keeping my preorder but I am not very impressed. Seems like the figure (both big and small) need more tabs.

    Why would you say that? once peaugh hinged and slotted everything in the correct manner, which can be tricky for anyone to do when still getting use to a new design, especially on camera, everything seemed to hold together on the toy perfectly well. MT does have a history of some figures being rather particular about how their parts move and hold together. But once ya got it ya got it.

    I've lost my enthusiasm for this guy and Peaugh's review cemented that. The combined mode looks great, but every other mode is lacking.

    I don't mind the cab being small, but something about it just isn't hitting the mark for me. I'm keeping my preorder so hopefully it will win me over once I have it in hand.
