    "Not completely horrible, but certainly they could have engineered the torso a bit better"? Lazy, I am not sure what you are looking for when you are looking for a 3P MP or voyager combiner. There HAS to be a certain level of complex engineering in order to get everything to transform and look the way it should look. These look a MILLION times better than anything Hasbro could come up with. I love complex transformations, so this is right up my alley. And as for the gap between his back gun and his back, I mean..G1 has the exact same setup and gap. So, I guess that's what they were going for. And I am actually really pleased that without the gun attached he looks sleek and slim from the side. That means all of the pieces during the transformation actually come together in a very cohesive way in the design.

    I'm not sure why you're bringing up hasbro, they have nothing to do with this set and I never mentioned them in my reviews.

    No-one is a bigger fan of Maketoys than I am (they literally are responsible for me becoming a collector again), well except maybe TJ but you need to realize that I am a very critical perfectionist by nature, that's just how I am. It doesn't matter how much I love something if it has flaws I will notice them and if they bug me enough I'll certainly feel they are worth mentioning in a review.

    Just because I pointed out flaws doesn't mean the figures are bad or that I'm even saying they're bad. Quite the contrary I absolutely love this set, but they aren't perfect, no transformer is.

    MT have a history now of doing amazing work and it is because of those very high expectations that Quantron is a little disappointing. I expect perfection from MT, which yes isn't fair, but if they weren't so good at what they do then I wouldn't be as surprised as I was at them, in my opinion, dropping the ball a little with Quanrons design.

    If the slimness of the side torso doesn't bother you then more power to ya man, I truly wish it didn't bug me either but it does and I can't change that.

    I do hope their aren't too many people only watching just my Quantron video and ignoring the individual videos I did for each figure because aside from overheats robot mode I absolutely love the individuals and had almost nothing negative to say about them at all.

    I'll likely keep my set uncombined most of the time because of how much I like them. Strafe especially I would seriously buy an infinite number of redecos of I love him so much. He's literally the coolest jet figure I now own, so glad I managed to snag the Ripper version of him too.

    Good stuff Elektric, glad I'm not the only person who decided to dedicate single videos to each figure as they are certainly worth it. :thumb

    btw the grey collar piece can be pushed down with a little force to clip onto his chest so that everything is locked in place - it should sit flush without any gaps.

    I don't know. Watching the reviews made me want the figures even less than before. These just don't look good to me.

    Maybe a critical review can't sway people over to this release but hopefully passionate gushing can!

    I'd be ever so grateful if you could watch, like, comment and share!
