    Nothing particularly new here especially since we already know Galaxy Force Megalo Convoy. The only noticeable difference between this and the test shot Jaguaratron got last September is that Jag's test shot had a purple, upside down Autobot symbol.

    This figure is really growing on me. I don't like his full robot mode, but his brute mode kicks ass. I also like his fan city mode better than the official mode.

    Is it just me, or does the altmode look *slightly* less lame than usual? It looks like the arms are farther forward than I've seen before. I almost like it in that shot, looks like an entire industrial complex on treads.

    Still can't get over that ugly alt mode (what the hell is it supposed to be anyway?), Bot mode looks kickass though - love that huge weapon!

    Where can the fan city mode be seen?

    Also, I look forward to having this guy already. I know the vehicle...thing is relatively "wonky" but the bot mode really is too good to pass up.

    Also, I like this version of "brute mode" better: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a243/HostedByChrist/IMG_2355.jpg

    Nice, good to see they haven’t changed much.

    And trust me, despite his very questionable alt mode his robot mode more then makes up for it and then some, and his mini-con is one of the best yet.

    It does look fairly decent in comparison to the real alt mode of the toy. I might try that once I get it. I think the "battle station" one looks better than the city mode they came up with though.

    It does look a lot better than usual. Comparing this with
    the photos at Ooebi and the Invincible Robot Laboratory,
    I find that the shoulders and arms have been pushed all
    the way to the front of the black, slotted bracket, closer
    to the red-striped gray structure. It sure makes the
    vehicle mode look more cohesive and less ridiculous.

    And, Skowl, it's a fantasy version of a bucket wheel
    excavator, as used in coal mining, but I still say it looks
    like a Mega Man boss or something you build when trying
    to use ALL the Legos. :)

    Vehicle mode totally reminds me of Beast Machines Scavenger.

    WOW, then some cool pics. Could you imagine the damage that one of those could cause? :thumbs2: 
    It is too bad the designers didn't do something else to make it not look like he is in a crouched down position in alt mode. The honking axe and cools and bot mode make up for it.

    Pushing the shoulders forward makes the alt mode look MUCH better. Makes me wonder why no one had done that before.

    The fan G1-style mobile and city modes are a hoot.
