    I gotta say I miss the desk background next to the newer blue background of your reviews.

    I love everything around this guy except the arms. They really just ruin it for me. Everything else is ace, but those gimmick arms :(

    Even your review can't convince me to get him, and your reviews ALWAYS convince me to get a toy :/

    Jeez, the engineering of these transformations just keeps getting more and more amazing. When I first saw pictures of this guy I clearly remember thinking "how the hell is that weird lookin' plane going to turn into that very humanoid robot?". But none the less, Hasbro pulled it off! Definite purchase, will pose him with Lugnut having some midair battle.

    Looks like shit.

    I mean honestly, what is going on with his waist? It's like a deluxe torso was just stuck on top of voyager legs.

    And don't get me started on his arms...

    Bloody awful. Worst Transformer figure in a long time IMO.

    I want to say that Hasbro had something somewhere in a Botcon presentation saying he was an Autobot, but I'm coming up a blank. Historically Highbrow has always been an Autobot though, and I'm sure he'll be the opposing number to Lugnut.

    Yeah, I'm fairly certain he's an Autobot as well, just no faction symbol visible on the toy itself.

    Maybe a clearance impulse buy for me since I generally don't get off screen movie toys unless they blow me away. Heck there are some on screen movie toys that I don't want.

    Still, he's got the WWII thing going for him which will make him fit in with Lugnut so that's a plus. Thanks for the review Peaugh

    thanks for the review figure looks great except for those thighs. the jet in back gives his plane mode extra speed and allows his robot mode flight ability. a definate buy for me i love the incinerator mold and this is a definate step up. i do wish they lose the gimmics but my nephew spent hours playing with my incinerator so i can understand why its there

    Too bad about those arms, a definate turn-off to what I think is otherwise a fantastic design : /

    Is he suppose the be the Seeker that Skyfire fought in the middle east in the ROTF novel?
    I have the book somewhere and I do recall that Decepticon being an old model plane.
