    I decided to go out hunting and came back with this goofy little guy.

    He's VERY orange. The photos make him seem more red, but in person, he is very orange. The paint on the face is nice, headlights and windows are flawless.

    Being a Legion figure, posability is limited (no elbows), but he has ball jointed shoulders, his lobster claws open a hinge, ball jointed hips, and knees rotate on pins. His feet are pretty stable and he stands nicely.

    He can cheer on the team:

    Or even kneel!

    I don't have any weapons handy for his scale, but you could probably use the little ports on his claws to give him a gun. If lobster claws don't do enough damage for ya.

    Vehicle mode tabs together really nicely and he looks like a slick hotrod...with some kitty ears sticking out of the roof.

    Overall Bisk is a neat, silly looking, and fun Legion figure. I'll give him a little paint eventually, and he can party with the rest of my mini-bots and Titan Masters.

    Yep! I'll be snapping one up, unless someone pinches them all before I get there. That'd be the pinnacle of crustacean.

    it took forever to get toys of him, but every bisk toy seems pretty damn good in its own right and compared to the rest of the line.

    I'm eventually going to have to pick this guy up purely to be crab-bros with Clampdown.

    I have him and he doesn't look good or in scale with my other Legion figures. If anyone wants him, let me know.

    Cat-ears aside, the car mode is pretty swanky. Like, if there was a shrimp-themed Silver Age superhero, Bisk would totally be their clawtomobile. Also, in a move totally unexpected with the size class, the lower claw parts actually swing all the way back into the arm (the OP missed this step). The transformation in general is pretty neat.

    Dunno if this is just a one-off QC error or not, but the robot mode's arms are floppy on mine. (Clampdown's also rather floppy....)

    I totally missed that little gem on this guy until this afternoon when I was playing with him alongside the Warrior version.
