    i was expecting this guy to be rather weak but he's actually quite impressive it seems.

    This whole figure seems silly to me.

    Definitely the weakest of this new line.

    dissapointed. those arms are a huge knock against him. He'd be my favorite out of these 3 except for that flaw. still at least the bot mode looks way better than the other 2's bot mode. still looks cool and I'll def pick him up.

    The mech suit reminds me of exosquad, which is awesome.

    I gotta whole heartedly disagree here.

    -The Bot mode is better than Ice pick and backfire by leaps and bounds..
    -The Treaded thing is really cool, cuz you can do different things with it, make it a low crawl vehicle...Lower the back and it looks like an Arty platform.
    -Mech suit...WOW...its just AWESOME. I bring the arms to the sides, use backfires rifles on the arms...and it looks like a PISSED off ED-209 type thing.
    I LOVE the idea of a mechsuit..Mabye Thunderheads tracking system will only allow him to target and track a few targets at once, but with his Human Ally, he can concentrate on a single weapon system, and walking and evading fire, while the human Ally concentrates on weapon systems and targeting..

    The best thing about the HA basics ive seen so far are their flexability...There are enough joints and hinges, that you can make cool modes and combinations on your own.

    Thunderhead...Is one of the best of this wave. Def tied with backfire and sandstorm. Each has a strong point in a certain mode...Thunderhead does all of them good, and the mechsuit is KICK ASS

    Yeah, I'm pretty happy with my Thunderhead too but I can definitely see how some might not care for him.

    He is way customizable with his many joints, though I think I might have liked a tighter robot mode. And the mechsuit mode is really awesome in my opinion, however it doesn't appear to photograph terribly well so it looks a little silly on the package, but I assure you guys, it's loads of fun in person. Even if they don't serve as fists, the fistholes are still accessible in this mode, so you can make him hold any 5mm peg weapons. The knives and guns from Recon Ironhide work especially well.

    To each his own, I suppose.
    I think Ice Pick is a lot more interesting looking. And I like that he actually has an alt-mode. Thunderhead is just bland and generic looking.

    Yea...To each his own, friend. I thought Icepicks bot mode was weak, but WOW...has there EVER been a snowmobile TF before? even one THAT perfect?

    Previous poster is right..I took a ton of pics to try and convince you but it just does NOT photgraph well.

    Im an old school battletech player, and the mech suit reminds me of a Masakari....

    Yeah, that's another thing I dig about him. I always thought an actual real life type of snowmobile transformer would be cool to see.

    I really don't see anything wrong with Icepick's robot-mode. But whatever. Least his hands arn't sideways.

    Meh...Took these pics in the garage with the evo...

    But Im hooked on this guy. May be the only TF I buy multiples of. I would REALLY like to see a few of these with different combos on my shelf...

    I even experimented with Kup's rifle on top and that looked cool too. The way the cockpit is hanging out in front...MAN...SOOooo cool..

    Mabye a GOOD human can be better at tracking targets than a TF robot...I dunno if theres any reason but I lOVE this one..Mabye he wears a Neuro helmet like in battletech, and between the two, they can produce superior hit potential.... Mabye Thunderhead concentrates SOOoo much on targeting and fighting, that the human can move him around....I dunno..I could go on and on...I LOVE the mech suit thing and I HOPE to see alot more

    Put Straxxus guns on em...Tomahawks...Whatever I put on looks SWEET. and you can take the "arms" in suit mode and move them around, they dont just have to stick out the sides, I made them go over his shoulder and slung the rocket pods in his armpits, and the little guns poked up over the treads...

    This may be the best out of the wave..

    It really depends on the minicon I think. I was able to get Pinpoint and Backwind to fit in there nicely enough, but somebody like Throttler or Chopster will probably be a harder fit.

    Still lovin it...

    Had to take a few pics for you guys. This is how I found I like the mech suit mode the most. It DOES limit 2 of your 5mm clip points, But you can put the small guns under there and put different stuff on top.

    Theres another way to do the arms/treads and that goes over where the guns are now, and the guns swivel under them. Not AS cool...but still better than the stock hasbro deal with arms off to the sides..

    Also, with this mode, you can open the fists......and put MOOAAAAR guns!!!

    I hope these sell out. I hope they become so hard to get, hasbro repaints them 4 times. I hope Hasbro decides to do MOOAAAR Mechsuits...Please..Moar Mechsuits...please
