    It is indeed. My camera is pretty pathetic, but later on I will have him freed from his plastic prison and would be happy to take picture requests if there are any. I just wanted to get the "pics or it didn't happen" shot in the initial post.

    Ooh. Yes. Can we get some shots in F-22 mode? I'm really thinking about grabbing this.

    Ew... fugly.

    I'd much prefer seeker repaints. Money not spent is a good thing I suppose.

    Here's a couple F-22 shots.

    One red flag I want to throw out there after transforming him is that some joints are very tight while others are incredibly loose. One of his rear landing gear pieces can barely hold up under his weight, while the pieces that get pulled out in the "collarbone" area in robot mode are pretty much cemented in. Very well could be a case by case thing, though.

    He was at Western Blvd KMart. There were four on the shelf, one of which had terrible paint apps (the Decepticon symbol on his wing was half missing).

    And yes, $25 before tax.

    Another word of warning...the plastic is eerily similar to that of 07 Protoform Screamer's. Not of the same caliber as the main line ROTF figures.


    ...and thanks, SQ and Dormamu :)

    ^ Me too. I love the mold, and I have already long ago removed the tatoos from my first Rotf screamer, so this is different enough to make me buy it. But I know once the leader class comes out, I'd prolly feel stupid for having two voyagers.
