    Nice. Looks like that's TWO Classics 2/Universe figs I'm getting now.

    Nubby-jet mode is awesome.

    So often the gray, unpainted prototypes look so much better...

    ...IMO, Tankor is no exception.

    I want to like him, and it doesn't look as bad as the original pictures, but I just can't handle the airplane mode. I can't get past the tiny wings.

    i freaking love him...i think he looks great, and i've always thought his wings look appropriately sized given his real life counterpart...lots of big planes have smaller and smaller wings, so its no big deal to me...this will be the first classic 2.0 i buy...

    thats my fave classic 2 so far.

    It has that slightly odd gen1 triple changer look, i like the fact the hands are just little round bits rather like the space shuttle from bruticus! Unlike many i actually like the little compromises made in each vehicle mode, it adds to the charm, some imperfaction!! i dont know how to explain this but it looks like a 'proper' transformer, i never got that vibe from cybertron for eg.

    Why have they called him Tankor? Why not Octane?

    Because they don't have the rights to Octane anymore?

    What're they gonna call him, Elizabeth? C'mon.

    What you name it when you get it out of the box is your business. :) 

    I'll be getting this one too, but I'm not sure I like the colors...

    As a deluxe, I like the figure overall, but not the 'claw' thing, don't like that at all.
