    summarized translation of the review:
    1. Perfect paint applications
    2. The gap in the trailer was due to the reviewer being too excited when he was taking photos for the review and didn't 'locked' it properly.
    3. In order to fit the trailer onto Rodimus, the sides of the trailer needs to be opened up. The reviewer commented that the fit is perfect.
    4. The reviewer forgot that Rodimus's gun can be attached onto the trailer's end as we have seen in previous pics.
    5. The 'rolling' battle station can be 'transformed' into a stationary base.
    6. Joints are tight for Protector's robot mode, however, the leg pieces are a little tricky to attach.
    7. The reviewer commented that the head sculpt is a little dull.

    edit:

    Sorry that I missed out this photo, the reviewer said that this is a secret package for Protector to recreate a particular scene but it's apparently not the matrix.

    He does look cool!

    Although I do wish more of the trailer turned into armor. As it stands I don't really display my trailers' base modes do it'll just be a big hunk of plastic sitting in my closet but :p 

    Not much to really change that fact is there lol

    Can't wait for this. This will be a welcome addition to go along with all of my other Classics/Generations figures.

    Ok ok ok damn, I need it. But this is the first time I can't just spend money left and right...shiiiiiiii

    I guess the stationary turret is slightly lame, but eh..it doesn't look all that bad. For a stationary gun. At least you can put it somewhere or have another bot man it, something I couldn't really do with the Commander's BFG.
    The fact that this comes with it's own color-correct Roller is supercool too and instantly negates any negative points I have!

    Thanks for posting these pictures and the translation. I was actually thinking about canceling me preorder, but that's not happening now.

    Nice!
    I really didn't expect the Space Winnebago to look so cool.

    I kind of do, too.
    But the set gives him just enough added mass as a robot to fit in perfect scale with Classics Optimus Prime and City Commander\Ultra Magnus.
