    So I'm a little tired after staying up all night and going to walmart at 2:30 to get some new ROTF stuff...this guy was on my must haves list, so without further delay, here's Wheelie!

    [​IMG]

    He's a RC truck and looks really awesome and small in this mode. I can't wait to see him in the movie, and I'm hoping maybe they'd even make a RC Wheelie down the line, but I'm happy with this if not :thumbs2: 

    [​IMG]

    Transformation isn't hard for this guy, just unsnap some of the truck in half, like the hood and then pretty much your just extending the limbs and pulling back the neck and seperating the eyes.

    He unfolds pretty much into a huge robot

    I love the eyes on this guy and you can get some cool expressions from him....

    As far as articulation goes, he doesnt have many ball joints and the ones he does have don't move as well. He can still do some good advertising though

    So overall, I'm really happy with him. I wish he did have more articulation, but I like the size of him and that makes up for it. Not a crazy transformation, but I'd recommend picking him up!

    Cool pictures!

    It looks like he's basically 1:2 scale or something similar)

    This one still looks too much like Johnny-5 or Wall-E for me though I may end up getting him eventually.

    Yeah....his height is really satisfying for me. I like that we got a bigger more detailed version. I'm hoping that a smaller in scale version could come as a pack in with a future human alliance set like they did with arcee in the skids set

    Probably the most disappointing deluxe for me. Mine was wobbly finicky mess. Nothing really feels solid or clicked together in robot mode

    ^^^ I know what you mean dude. The only loose parts on mine are the claw feet. A little glue fixed that though. He should be able to click in place in robot mode but he doesn't. Mine holds together fine cuz he has tight joints but some might run into your problemo with him

    A legends class of this guy, I think, would be perfect scale-wise to the rest of the figs.

    Well good thing they're making one. :) 

    Decent enough figure. Honestly, I like Chromia more. He's odd to transform and just woefully out of scale. It really bugs me for some reason. I have no problem with massively portrayed characters that get small toys, but the opposite irks me.

    His legs do have a variety of joints. The hips are on ball joints, but limited a little by the surrounding kibble. I'm sure if the joints on mine weren't so loose, he could pose decently. No side to side head movement though.

    I flip the two waist panels into the center on mine - it makes him look a little more solid, gives him better hip articulation and gives his free-floating spine a base.

    just picked him up, love him.

    the instructions show his fingers underneath in truck mode almost not showing at all, but i cant get them up inside as much as they show it, there just isnt room. am i missing something?

    and does anyone know what that huge hinge on the shoulder wheels is for? its not used in transformation at all, and all it would accomplish is moving his arms down to his waist on robot mode..

    Also, if you fold his "toes" back, they can act as a stand so it looks like he just has wheel feet, like he supposed to look (see childrens books)

    Just picked him up. Holy Crap he is awesome. Nearly as high a leader Prime when he's fully extended.

    Might pick him up, but if I do I'm painting his "fangs" with a good coat of Floquil Reefer White, as that's the ugliest use of teh infamous grey plastic I've ever seen!

    He was the last deluxe I bought. He is extremely loose. Every time I try to stand him he does the Van Dame splits. Nail polish to the rescue. Overall....meh. Not great, not horrible. I think I have more fun spinning his faction symbol thatn actually transforming him.
