    Very cool figger! I have been anxiously awaiting this guy as I'm trying to make a TF:A Bruticus! I like the firepower!

    Peaugh, does the flip down section of the body clip in somehow? It seems like it's kinda loose! But a must have of course!

    Looks like his abdomen may be a bit loose. Is there no tab to keep that panel in place better?

    Yeah, it snaps into place, I just wasn't pushing hard enough in the vid.

    Nope, there was just a little burr of plastic in there that kept wanting to snap the arm down. I filed it off and no more worries.

    he looks like he might have some top heaviness to him...and therefore a lack of pose ability...is this true?

    The shortness works G1-homagewise, but conflicts a bit too much with his Confident Business attitude in TFA. Figure looks great though, we already saw that Power-up/down gimmick for the gun since we got good pics of the gun, and now it's confirmed. Overall i'm definately looking forward to buying this figure, with the only bad side being that horrible clear plastic.

    Not that I've noticed. He's actually got some nice solid boots that are wide enough to keep him supported just fine.

    It's a pretty decent mold, but the incredibley small size of it and lack of paint apps anywhere on the back kills a lot of my enthusiasm for it.

    All the same, great review as always.

    Peaugh, I have a question for you. I think you do great reviews, as far as video reviews go, and is better than almost all the other crap that goes on YouTube. But I am curious, why do you, time and time again, spend lots of money on a figure that is due out in a matter of weeks? Is it a service to the community? Is it a deal where you take pride in being consistently "first" to put a toy on YouTube? I know this has to get expensive after a while. I'm not being a smart ass, I swear, I am legitimately curious.

    It's really just about wanting a figure. And time, as always, equals money.

    I think, Peaugh is allowed to speak for himself, but thanks anyway.

    I think it is nice to have a figure before anyone else.
