    For all those that have problems with Prime Knockout, judging from pictures, his chest can be configured a bit more accurately, and his hip panels can fold in. also, looking closely at this picture, you can see little hinges on his left arm, near the windows, indicating the doors can fold in a bit to mach his CGI mdel a bit more.

    Otherwise, discuss any other problems you have, and if I can see anything that might fix them judging from the pics, I'll update this thread, if not, Hasbro really dropped the ball on this one.

    Looking at that picture makes me wonder if you can rip off his door panel like in that one episode. I don't think he looks so bad, maybe moreso a case of mis-transformation as you implied.

    I think it looks pretty good overall, I know I'll be grabbing it.

    UPDATE: Judging from the gaps in the hood panels, the sides may fold down a bit to better fill out the torso.

    I don't see this looking too much better even when properly transformed. That roof needs to go behind the grill and the grill needs to fold in. The car headlight pieces need to fold out more at an angle too. Even then I don't know. We need some in hand shots.

    WTF is up with the forearm of the hand holding the stick? Looks like some photoshop filler, doesn't look the same as the right arm, seriously, what's up with that?

    I don't think that pic does this firgure justice. I think some in-hand images will look better.

    I see great potential. I'm in! (I pre-ordered the jap version, because Knockout needs to be a purty as possible!)

    More likely at the Toy Fair we'll see glimpse of the real deal.

    All this has been brought up in all the other topics about him.

    Proper transformation isn't going to fix his stupidly flat and undetailed chest though. They should have cheated on that.

    Deffinately. Just like RID Prime Optimus. The chest looks nothing like the show even painted properly. The FE is dead-on.

    Knockout here's just that only x2.

    honestly, I think it's the WINDSHIELD, which would be trippy and awesome as hell. Though I may be looking at a different spot

    It is. The Proto has clear plastic there. That's where the roof and windshield go.

    I think he looks decent. I suspect he'll look better in hand.
