    Ok, fine. I suppose I should get him. I love the LEDs, the gun turrets are cool and the massive rotating claw hand is loads of fun.

    Great information, but man do your arms get in the way quite a few times.

    Much more impressive than I was expecting.

    Well done sir. There appears to a panel just below space for the Autobot symbol. Does that do anything?

    As for a base mode, I am not sure if it exists but when I saw the wings in robot mode they remind me of the dock for a rocket or shuttle. That could be a starting point, also the wings appear to serve no real purpose in alt-mode.

    Just some thoughts.

    If you're familiar with my videos..that's never really a problem with me because i'm always behind the camera. Because this guy is so large, i needed larger white boards (even then those weren't large enough) and i had to have my camera further away from my general reviewing area. Because of that, i had to sit on the side of my camera making me reach across thew view of the camera a couple times, sorry about that

    Actually, someone left me a comment, what you need to do is rotate the piece that the autobot symbol would go on..once you do that, the chest piece pops off fairly easily, then you can put the other light feature in his chest no problem.

    I've seen and enjoyed many of your other videos, but you really do get in the way a lot. Your arms are dead sexy, but you ain't got nothing on the pure awesomeness of Genesis.

    LMAO well thank you :p 

    I wish i could have done it a different way. I had to have the camera way far back to get as much as i did in frame. Sadly, as sexy as my arms are, they aren't long enough for me to have stayed directly behind the camera and reach forward to play with Genesis :p

    I have to say...I'm impressed. You can tell this was a labor of love for the designers. They put so much detail, so many steps in the transformation...this is a legit piece of work. I'm amazed.

    If I had the $300.00 to spare, I'd buy him in a sec. I can't believe how nice he is. Wow.

    Now I'm *really* hoping they do Trypticon. Turned out much better than I expected--and probably about as well as could be done in translating the WfC design into real-life.

    Huh. Are the lights on all the time when you plug them in? I hope that isn't the case. I'd like to be able to leave them in and just turn them on and off rather than have a pile of LED casings lying about :/

    Btw, the Autobot-like piece on the chest rotates to allow you to remove the chest panel to insert the LED. It locks it into place.

    Very thorough review, thanks.

    Thinking about how this figure is only about 50-60% the price of Hercules makes me sigh a little.
