    maybe this will finally shut people up about his knees.

    I dont think his waist is supposed to be covered like that. it looks horrible.

    Yeah, I don't think the waist is right with the screws facing forward...

    If you notice, he tried to flip it up, but that didn't seem to work either...

    Bainreese mentioned about extending the leg about half an inch... what if he extended it a little bit more, maybe that'll do the trick :lol 

    So um.. how did he transform it anyway? I assumed he would have used intructions (UNLESS they were unclear like Skids)

    This mold is ok... and I'm betting that people who saw the pics already hope the repaint/remold ISN'T Trailbreaker...

    The bed should've at least be spread apart a bit, kinda detached a little from bed like Alt. Tracks with the hood on his legs

    Looking at some of the pics where the hood is still above his head, I'm wondering if there's away that the grill can flip under the hood so when the entire thing rotates down that the grill is actuall beneath the hood inside his chest...

    ***EDIT***

    Doesn't look like the grill piece can fit underneath his hood since it's so thick... Hmmm... There's gotta be a way around that... :huh

    Ahh, so that's how the legs are, those "kneecap" pieces can flip to top or bottom. Phew, there's goes my worries that Hasbro mucked it up with a last minute change. Still can't wait to get ahold of him. I'd love to get a second one and kitbash it to look like the Dodge I own.

    Side note: Somebody please tell the Allspark you don't need a bazillion thumbnails in an article. Even on broadband it took a while to load(for me anyway). That's what a gallery is for :p

    Look at post #2...:p 

    Actually, I'm not sure if that's his official quote... We haven't seen a box or his gun for that matter...

    By that I mean not along with this wonderful review... :D

    Well, I did read it, but you didn't quote it :p 

    I just saw it in Bainreese's review and that quote was under Prime's name, but yeah, we'll eventually find out soon

    As I thought, he has knees but his thunder thighs don't allow good use of them and having them so far up doesn't help either. It'll be good to finally get a new mold but he looks like he could be dissapointing.

    I love new alt molds, but really... this one looks worse almost every time I see it! I don't remember seeing non-frontal shots before, and I can see why. Nothing but kibble and plating from the other sides! And his head looks really really tiny in those shots too.

    I gotta say I don't like the posed shots. Hell, turn the truck upside down and there's all of his robot mode! Also, he looks small in bot mode compared to the other guys. He should be bigger.

    Not only does this still look rubbish transformed but I'm shocked to learn his front wheels aren't linked.

    Other than that, still a beautiful vehicle mode, though. Just a shame that the robot is so utterly terrible and without merit. Roll on Mirage.

    Aparently, Bainreese's "source" forgot to pack the gun with the toy. :rolleyes:
