    The legs are mistransformed on this test shot. The bits hanging off the back of the leg need to be folded inside to support the knees so they don't sink so low. The door wings also need to be moved behind the shoulders.

    The hands are also not painted silver like all other images seen so far.

    It appears the hood is plastic. I'd have thought that it would be one of the more likely pieces to be die-cast. I hope there's still a good amount of die-cast in this.

    Nice figure, but the back ruins it for me. The entire hood, windshield and top are on his back like some super-lame turtleshield. I just can't look past that.

    The head sculpt is groovy!

    The head sculpt is definitely growing on me. Once I realized how Samurai inspired these Alternity figures are, I started to like them even more. Very excited.

    It looks a little bit like the part tolerances are a problem. I look at that car mode and all I can see are seams and gaps. I hope the final product fits together more nicely. Some of my BT's had similar problems but usually not until the second or third repaint.

    I think they could have made these a lot nicer if they'd kept them 1:24

    Nice looking figure, if it were Silverstreak. As Prime / Convoy...eh, not such a good sell. I get the same weird rub when I look at the super blue Alternity Megs. Not really digging the 32 flavors; just give us one nice version and we're good to go.

    That's the coolest figure I've seen in years. Bought.
