    I wish it was like...a helmet that I could put on and run around the apartment in.

    That would be fun

    Seconded. I think they overdid it with the tech greeblies all over his noggin. Plus, it looks like a badger gnawed on the ends of his antennae. Bleh.

    EDIT: Also, he's got weird Revoltech neck. Bleh again.

    I don't know why they can't take the time to clean up the panel lines and basic shapes. I'd consider buying it if it were a resin kit that needed TLC to sand and put together. But as it is I'd have to tear the whole thing down, strip the paint, and rebuild it before I could enjoy looking at it.

    I tolerated a lot of slop on the Matrix because it look OK from a little ways away. But at the price-point these things end up at, I think they could put a little more effort into hardening up the lines.

    That would freakin rule. Looks good, but is it supposed to have some battle damage on the antenna or was something or someone chewing on it?

    I remember when i was a kid my older brother had an Optimus Prime Helmit that had a voicechanger in it to sound like a robot. The paint in this looks rushed.
