    Still on the fence with this one. I might pick it up at retail if I happen to see it and am jonesing for a new TF. I'm pretty sure he'll be a shelf-warmer compared to all the others though.

    I will come out and say it I love this guy.

    Ok the colours are freaky but hell it didn't bug me in G2. I love how his jet kibble forms a rocket pack and I really like his gun arm. Also I really like the proportions on this toy no super skinny chicken legs or roller skate feet he looks nice and strong and the head in the cockpit is a cool idea and every thing seems to fit together well.

    IMO this guy will be one of the gems of RoTF

    looks pretty good, and for some reason the bot mode reminds me of wheelie, and the HEAD it self reminds me of transmutate some how.

    I must say personally I don't like Breakaway, Mudflap and Skids, largely on account of the feet. I didn't mind toes on the beast era figures, or claw like two-toes like many other designs, but I can't stick those huge dorky feet with five bulbous toes- for some reason I can't stand 'bots who look like they are walking around barefoot with human-like feet. Put some goddam shoes on ya hippy! I respect that this is probably only a very narrow opinion though.

    I am presuming that like Mudflap and Skids he is supposed to have a physical defect for new Chip Chase morals? Or are they just supposed to look weird?

    Hmmm...I'm still not really sold, but seeing the transformation in action seems to make him make a bit more sense; first impressions of the robot mode suggested that he just looked fudged or mistransformed, but seeing it all come together clarifies some of the design choices for me. Jet mode is very nice, too; seeing the smooth lines on this guy and RotF Starscream really demonstrates the progress Hasbro has made on realistic jetformers since the first movie toyline. I'll keep this dude under observation.

    Awesome! I NEED this guy now. He's even got a freaking machine gun on his arm that rotates! That's better than any missile gimmick in my book.

    AN EXCELLENT REVIEW for a less than impressive product. Jet mode is okay but the robot mode leaves a lot to be desired; it's just plain ugly.

    I like him. The wings look good on the back, and the machine gun is a nice touch.

    I'm betting this guy is the next Wreckage, no screentime, but suddenly a fan favorite.

    I'm wondering if the wings can rotate all the way around to the "seeker" position. I've not yet seen a pic of them pointing that way.

    Plus the hunchback and the general look of befuddlement on this guy, he's like the guy 'Cracker & Skywarp picked on untill he cried and joined the Autobots.

    He's the Decepticon's Wheelie!

    Definately on my get list. (and there isn't much in ROTF I want either)

    I probably won't get this one, unless he's in the movie. But an interesting robot mode.

    Love it, pretty unique. I didn't like the colors at first but they grew on me.

    wow... i'm just trying to wrap my mind around what it is you all see in this guy.... i mean, for the most part it's fan-love for this weird-looking bot. i...just....don't....get it.... i just feel if it is to be a humanoid representation, it should have its head above its shoulders... and its ass shouldn't reside somewhere at the top of its spine.. even if that WERE okay with me..... i just feel the execution of this bot makes him feel unfinished. many complain about the head in the cockpit. i too complain about this. the fact that he has feet? like with toes? very weird, especially for a bot that will spend most of his time flying, not walking.


    but yeah.. glad there's love for him.. but i just can't do it.

    I wish SS and the seekers had this mold. I like Breakaway.
    Starscream looked like a f-ed up pankcake monster in bot mode, IMO.

    but i like how the wings/rear stabilizers come together.
    I will definitely pre-order this with Springer ASAP.

    2 down. Now, someone has to do a damn good job of selling me the other p.o.s molds...lol.

    That's what I was saying.I know they could have given Starcream a sleeker look than the"Ape Kite"chicken they stuck us with. No wonder he's a Decepticon, if I looked like SS,I would run toward the nearest living thing and kill it.:(

    I absolutely adore this guy. The official photos made the color scheme look idiotic, yet seeing it actually being in somebody's hands somehow makes it work. The blue and green camo makes him look like he's covered in winding jungle vines, and his expression seems so childlike and playful. His transformation is clean and intuitive, and under the right lighting that light blue looks wonderful. I can't wait to get him.
