    He does come with his Hammer.

    His robot mode kinda looks squished... And it is very loose.

    [​IMG]

    His head sculpt is nice

    [​IMG]

    His arms have a very nice design on them.

    [​IMG]

    His Wings are held together very bad, needs a pin.

    [​IMG]

    These two really are not living up to the standard of the first two waves are they?

    Still, it's a pretty good representation of a character.

    I was certain that the initial pics were unpainted and that the final version would have paint to blend the colors. I guess I was wrong.

    It still looks like a great A-10, and I'm hoping for an Ultimates repaint to fix the prototype look.

    How's his poseability? So far he's looking pretty bleak but I still want him because he's Thor.

    First time I've looked at an official TF and thought "That looks like a knockoff."

    Pros:
    * Moldwise, It's one of the best, most accurate (in relative terms) A-10s yet seen in any Transformers line. While there are obvious robot parts underneath, they blend into the over shape of the plane better than most. The vehicle mold is also held together rather securely.

    * Transformation is easy once a little practice has been put into figuring out the order. The wings unfolding into a cape is fairly inspired.

    * Thor-bot mode is reasonable-looking, and well-detailed with lots of tech and ornate markings.

    Cons:
    * Jet mode is too back-heavy to sit on its wheels without sticking the hammer in the back end of the plane like a set of "truck nuts". To be fair, models of the real A-10 have the same problem, because the real plane has a heavy gun in front balancing out the heavy engines in back.

    * Color is obviously Thor-centric, which makes the jet look like a bad parade float. Doesn't seem quite so bad to me in person though.

    * Wing-cape gets in the way of the arms a lot, and is kinda in the way in general.

    * Has several joints that are a bad combo of too-tight next to something too loose or prone to pop off. The wings are especially bad with this, and it's easy to accidentally pull the forearms out completely when trying to extend them.

    * Hammer seems a bit like an afterthought. It fits rather loosely in Thor's hand, and looks odd stored in vehicle mode (see aforementioned 'Truck Nuts' comment)

    Kitbash potential:
    Rather high, as there are relatively few obviously Thor-like details apart from head, general ornamental detailing , and color.

    Overall:
    This is one of those toys that I imagine would be a lot better if Takara had a bigger influence on the engineering of this line. It's definitely got a lot of good ideas, and could have been pretty excellent with a little better attention to detail. Could have been much better, but not too bad really.

    BTW, I found out the toy seems to hold the hammer better in the left hand than the right.

    The robot mode looks kind of cool, but that alt mode... does he have any paint apps on the plane past the cockpit?

    Good thing I'm not a big Thor fan. :/

    Seeing these pictures of both modes the only thing that comes to mind is so much wasted detail.
