"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.
