    GET TO THE CHOPPA!

    I know we have seen pics before but though I would take some with my spin on the transformation as I think Hasbros is yuck. This is also one of those figures you can kind of play around with and interpret your own bot mode and transformation.

    Vehicle mode:

    Bot mode:
    Now Hasbros is this.......
    http://www.tfw2005.com/resources/attachment.php?do=fullview&attachmentid=11054

    Now you can see Hasbros has some major difference in paints apps. All the white should be the gold and the head is painted diffrently as well. What will be the real release? We shall see!

    Now as you can see he does have some limited movement with arms and tend to pop off easily. I dont care for the blades on the arms as the left arm has the spinning part, so as you pose the blades move around.

    I chose to place or store the blades on his tail fill since it fits on one of the pegs.

    The legs I inverted out instead of keeping straight like Hasbros pic since it breaks up the legs better and gives it some more detail and texture/bulk to the legs. Also allows for more poses.

    Over all pretty neat little guy and a great addition to the Autobots.

    Definatly considering this guy. I just wish he had better/actual hands. Is that a 'thumb' (the white thing) I see in a couple of pics?

    Thank you so much for providing the pictures, as they show he does (somewhat) have hands! I'm not as sold as I was earlier as the difference in paint apps makes him look much blander

    One thing I REALLY do like is he has no outside robot mode kibble visible! WOO! If anything, his vehicle mode has a lot of potential for kitbashing. Hmmm.... add a few details and he could be Airwolf!

    Cool, is there a way to actually have them folded out? It looks like the one side of his arm would block it?

    I'm still not completely sold on the 'bot yet but the fact that this is one of a rare few TFs that turn into a completely kibble free Helicopter makes me want to like it.

    So he has spinny blade action then? How on earth does that work when the blade splits for transformation, or is it just partsforming?

    no offense, and thanks for the review, but your interpretation of the legs is rediculous. rediculous bad!

    [​IMG]
    the paint sceme here is much better, check how the legs are bent. When you refrenced this pic, I think you meant to contrast your interpretation with this pic below:
    [​IMG]
    this is the official pic, they added a poor paint app choice to the head.

    Ummm did u read the review?

    I said I purposely did the legs different because it breaks up the legs more and allows for better posability. I don't like the straight leg approach because it make it look not transformed completely. Again this guy is open to interpretation on how u want to transforms him.

    Great review, but I thought you only collected Cons. ;) 

    I'm really changing my opinion about this guy, and I think this review may have pushed him up a tad. Seeing him in a non-Hasbro photographer's hands give me a better idea of the figure.
