    When I first saw it, from the Hasbro stock Photo, I thought this guy looked lamer-than-lame, it was the Giant arms that did it (made me hate it).
    Now I've seen it in Remy's Gallery, he looks so many kinds of awesome, and he's so different, So, he will be on my list for, get from Ebay.

    But Shortround, what?
    Wouldnt something like Seaspray or Mirage be better?

    Still a bit iffy on him. I'll probably get him if he's on sale and there's nothing else I want. I do like the fact that he comes with a pistol though.

    Still think the name's a bit silly, but I love the design.

    I think the name is actually pretty fitting, especially with his bio. Granted, I don't like how it implies being a nerd is a bad thing. :thumbdown 

    I love Remy's pics. In that last one, it looks like Shortround could be the lovechild between Sharkticon and Chromia. It doesn't help that those long arms remind me of when I was little and would put cardboard tubes on my arms and pretend to be a robot and whatnot.

    I dunno what version of Macross or Robotech you're watching but that looks nothing like the SDF-1.

    I'm a sucker for realistic looking vehicles so I like the alt mode a lot. In robot mode, his arms still ruin it for me.

    Possibly my favourite Cybertron basic so far.

    My favourite Hasbro exclusive so far.

    Awesome colour scheme. Great Alt mode (I love aquatic TFs). Robot mode is awesome, unique but not lame (like Backstop). And he's a decepticon :) 

    Man, I want this toy so bad. Kudos to the design team for creating this cool little guy!

    I meant the robot mode, with the huge arms (looks like the two naval ships) and the face (kinda like the SDF-1), and the guns on the shoulders like that.

    I love the color scheme and the alt mode but the arms on the robot look terrible.
